Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. While the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
Alice, having survived the previous installment of the Nightmare series, finds the deadly dreams of Freddy Krueger starting once again. This time, the taunting murderer is striking through the sleeping mind of Alice's unborn child. His intention is to be "born again" into the real world. The only one who can stop Freddy is his dead mother, but can Alice free her spirit in time to save her own son? Written by

(At around forty-nine minutes) On the door to Dr. Moore's office, just below his name, the name "Dr. Talalay" can be seen. This is a reference to Rachel Talalay, who had been involved with the franchise since the beginning in various capacities, most notably in directing Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991).

(at around 1h 16 mins) Near the end, when Freddy is holding Jacob's hand, you can clearly see Robert Englund's normal hand at the bottom of the glove. Freddy was completely burned so there should have been scar tissue instead of regular skin. See more »
Aren't you eating?
I really don't feel up to it.
Really, dear. You ought to try something.
You're the one whose always slapping my hand about my weight, *Mother*.
That's why we diet, dear. So we can eat at social events and not upset the other guests!
Tell you what. Why don't I just eat the whole goddamn tray, go throw up and come back for seconds, all right?

In the end credits, Lisa Wilcox's (Alice) name is omitted, possibly due an oversight with the end credits being listed alphabetically and the fact that her last name would have put her last on the list. See more »

Some of the best, if not the best, special effects in the seven-part "Nightmare On Elm Street" series were featured in this movie. They are good and they are clever.
The teens in here are still annoying and profane but not to the degree they are in most of the "Freddy" films. There are some real "hotties" in here, too. The ridiculous part is that all these "teens" look about 25 years old (which they probably are). Robert Englund (Freddy) has some funny lines, as he did in a most of these movies and the movie is well-photographed.
My problem with the story, and almost of them actually, is the theology which has always been so stupid, but I tolerated it through all of the films. But here, to a show a book in the beginning of the film that says "Christian Mythology," is a real cheap shot and going too far. This pagan propaganda was heavy in this film, which is really only worthwhile for the inventive special-effects.
