Nightmare On Elm Street II

It is a testament to power of Freddy Krueger to enter our national conciousness that he has become so iconic after such a movie as this. It is remarkable that people didn’t just turn their backs on the franchise after this sequel. It’s not that the film is especially badly directed or acted. The story even has some nice ideas about Freddy coming back into a human form. The essential problem is that Freddy is not Freddy. He isn’t scary or even menacing. He doesn’t even get any decent one-liners. Looking back  I can’t even remember a single death scene. What I do remember is the dreadful cookout scene where Freddy Krueger, an all powerful god of nightmares, is reduced to a crazy man with weird knife gloves threatening a bunch of teenagers.
