Picking up where the original Nightmare left off, Nancy has grown up and become a psychiatrist specializing in dream therapy. She meets a group of children at a local hospital facing Freddy Krueger, the same demon she once encountered in her sleep. One of them is Kristen, who has the power to draw other people into her dreams. Working with a male doctor assigned to the case, Nancy helps the kids realize their special abilities within the nightmare world. When Freddy captures one of her charges, she leads a rescue attempt into Krueger's domain, in hopes of putting his spirit to rest once and for all.Written by

According to Wes Craven, the idea for the mental hospital treating the Dream Warriors was not just some riff on One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), but instead inspired by real-life establishments, "At that time, there was kind of a movement of such places that even advertised on television, 'Send us your troubled child, and we'll make them okay', and, essentially, they were like prisons, or insane asylums."

(at around 1h 10 mins) When the characters appear in the quiet room with Kristen and the camera dollies toward them, you can hear the sound of the crew members' feet as they push the camera along. See more »
This is one of the best movies in the series. I like the first movie the best but this is probably number two to me. Great scares, Englund is fantastic as Krueger. The acting is good. Good writing. Everything you would hope for in a movie like this!
