The only film in the main series excluding the remake and Freddy Vs Jason in which aside from Freddy (Robert Englund) no one else from this film reappears in another entry in the franchise or to feature anyone from the prior film or a sequel. See more »

The only available German video version was heavily cut to receive a free of 16 rating. Hardly none of the gore made it into this version, making it almost unwatchable. See more »
Freddy's back to terrorize a confused teenage boy!
Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2 (1985) was the second film in the Freddy Krueger series. This time his main target is the son of a man who just but the Elm Street house. Freddy preys on this sexually confused kid and forces him to do his bidding and uses him to serve his twisted needs. Can poor Jesse over come the strong willpower of Freddy? Will he be able to discover his true self? Watch and find out, you'll be surprised! Strange stuff.
What I liked about this film was the filmmakers tried to do something different, and it almost killed the series. The plot and storyline was too complex and byzantine for you average horror film. Much of the film's hidden context and meaning would go over the heads of most horror film fans. If Sigmund Freud were alive today he would've had a field day trying to figure out this one. Sadly underrated and unfairly neglected..
