Freddy's Nightmares kicks off with Freddy's nightmare.
20 January 2012 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

A TV show made at the height of "Freddy fever", I can't really say that Freddy's Nightmares ever looked like it was going to be a great show. It was a cheap way to capitalise on the success of the character and concept.

But the pilot episode was better than most. "No More Mr. Nice Guy" was directed by Tobe Hooper and focused on the fateful night that turned Freddy Krueger (played by Robert Englund) from a child-killer to a supernatural monster. Fans familiar with the films and the story will notice a number of differences veering from established continuity but it's a decent way to kick off the show and provides a quick introduction to anyone somehow still unaware of just how Freddy operates.

The acting isn't too bad, I suppose, but this first TV outing for Freddy manages to be enjoyable mainly because he gets to have a bit more presence than he would in many of the other episodes (when he would become more of a "cryptkeeper" figure and make fleeting appearances).

The stall is set out from the opening moments so if you don't mind what you see then you may well find that you can check out every episode of the two seasons that were made, even if only for the curiosity value.
