A new family moves into the house on Elm Street, and before long, the kids are again having nightmares about deceased child murderer Freddy Krueger.

Mark Patton, an openly gay actor, has amusingly stated that he sees himself as the "first male scream-Queen", due to a combination of factors, including the film's homoerotic subtext, the fact that he was often depicted on-screen screaming "like a girl", and because he viewed the character as a closeted gay man.

Both the original Media and Video Treasures versions have the "Main Title," from the beginning of the movie in the end credits. The cable and DVD versions included Bing Crosby's song "Did You Ever See A Dream Walking?" playing during the end credits. The song is also listed in the credits. See more »
When the Walsh's move to the Elm Street, the teenager Jesse Walsh (Mark Patton) has a creepy nightmare with a burned man wearing a glove with blades called Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) that tells him that Jesse has the body and he has the brain. Jesse becomes close to Lisa Webber (Kim Myers), who also has a crush on him, and befriends his school mate Ron Grady (Robert Rusler), who tells him that his house had remained closed for five years since the former dweller Nancy Thompson that went to a mental institution after witnessing the death of her boyfriend on the other side of the street and her mother in the living room. Lisa finds the diary of Nancy hidden in a locker while Jesse is possessed by Freddy Krueger that uses him to kill his victims.
This sequel to the classic "A Nightmare on Elm Street" is underrated in IMDb. The story about possession is more romantic with the love of Lisa for Jesse, has plot holes but is also entertaining, with the use of great special effects. This movie is also the debut of Kim Myers, who has an impressive resemblance with Meryl Streep, in the cinema in a lead role. Again there is an open conclusion to give a sequel to the saga of Freddy Krueger. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "A Hora do Pesadelo 2 A Vingança de Freddy " ("The Hour of the Nightmare 2 The Revenge of Freddy")
