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

According to director Stephen Hopkins, they "got lots of tarantulas, hand-painted them green and red, and on the floor of the stage placed a little wall up in the shape of an arm and had trainers come in and around the tarantulas." The plan was to simply drop the wall and film the resulting scattering of the spiders. However, after they got the shot they were left with a studio full of around 200 angry tarantulas. Hopkins figures, "We probably carried on shooting on another set, I'm sure. I don't think anyone ever found them again." As far as the director knows, those spiders roamed freely through the studio and escaped into the free world, or maybe it was just somebody's else job to ensure the tarantulas were all accounted for.

In the home video release of the film, Robert Englund is listed in the credits as "Freddy Krueger" and "Freddy Father" this was changed in the DVD release to just Freddy Krueger. See more »
Although the UK cinema and video versions were fully uncut the DVD release features the R-rated U.S print which is missing around 15 secs of gore. The fusion scene between Dan and the bike is shortened and the scene where Freddy forces Greta's innards into her mouth is cut (his voice can be heard saying "You are what you eat"). See more »

"Its Super Freddy"
This movie isn't the best the series has to offer but it isn't as bad as critics made it out to be while the series moved away from the blood and gore horror aspect of the first three films and more towards dark humour and less gory kills mainly to lower the age rating so more people could see it Robert England is still terrifying as Freddy even when he's making funny one liners he still instills fear into you.
The movie has an interesting storyline that focuses on Lisa Willcox character being pregnant and Freddy using the unborn childs dreams to use Alices powers of bringing people into dreams which does change the rules of the series a little but not drastically just a few loop holes to bring Freddy back for another nightmare inducing killing spree of Alices new friends.
Some interesting camera angles used and the usual creepy music found in an Elm Street movie like the jump rope children singing there's also a stop motion scene in the movie that really hasn't aged well at all and is just hilariously bad.
I recommend watching this if your a Freddy fan or just a fan of slasher movies and dark humour and while not very scary is very entertaining to watch.
