not bad but still missing things
17 October 2012 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

The third episode of season one and available on the Blu Ray box of the Nightmare On Elm Street franchise. This was much better then the other episode available on the box and eventually got a real story.

It do has some red stuff in it and the story is coherent but again it has nothing to do with Freddy Krueger. In fact, short stories like this should have a surprising end like in Tales From The Crypt but it just hasn't got any. You are left with a bitter feeling. Suddenly Freddy is there and you think, what the hell? And even the things Freddy says doesn't make any sense.

The directing was okay, Mick Garris did it and it all looked great. You better watch Masters Of Horror created by Mick. It's much better and do has a horror overflow.

Gore 0,5/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 2/5 Story 2/5 Comedy 0/5
