Product Description

Product Description

Final episode in the popular slasher series. Alice Johnson (Lisa Wilcox), the Dream Master from the previous 'Nightmare on Elm Street' film, is expecting a baby. Unfortunately for her, the meddlesome Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) finds out about this and begins to control the foetus's dreams, hoping that the birth will be his means of returning to the land of the living. So once again the old Dream Master must set to work, taking the battle to Krueger one final time.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Nightmare on Elm Street series continues to run out of steam, with director Stephen Hopkins (Lost in Space ) applying something approaching brilliance to a script (partly by horror novelists John Skipp and Craig Spector) that falls apart under the light. Among the impressive horror-weird sequences include a boy being absorbed by a motorbike or the characters straying into a superhero comic, but it still has boring Freddy wisecracks, a parade of indistinguishable and annoying teenage cannon fodder, an incomprehensible premise about the dreams of an unborn baby and lots of pompous would-be scariness to drag it down into the morass. Lisa Wilcox returns, but there's no particular reason to be excited about that. -- Kim Newman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase

Director: Stephen Hopkins

Cast: Robert Englund, Lisa Wilcox, Nick Mele, Kelly Jo Minter, Danny Hassel, Erika Anderson


Alice Johnson, survivor of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4: THE DREAM MASTER has nightmares again, although she defeated Freddy.
But this times it's her unborn child that dreams, and through him Freddy is allowed to return.


A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 5 : THE DREAM CHILD is the perfect example of what happens when you have decent directing with style, a superb female lead and some really good ideas and a horrendous script:
Freddy is just a nuisance, there is absolutely nothing scary here and the whole "time lapse" thing was just a drag. On the positive side, there is a little anti-abortion message worked into the film.
Once again, Lisa Wilcox gives a superb performance as the best "hero" the franchise has ever seen. I'm glad they didn't make the same mistake here as they did with the survivors of NIGHTMARE 3 in NIGHTMARE 4. Alice is the best character in this film. Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) has been reduced to an annoying clown. Yes, he's still funny, but that is not what this film needed at all. I did like Nick Mele (Alice's father), who has really changed into a likeable character.
There is nothing scary in this movie and the 18 Certificate is a complete joke, this is more a 15 Cert. film on the brink to a 12. The little bit of gore that the film had to offer was cut by the MPAA for an R rating (why I don't know, those scenes weren't even that hard), and while the unrated version was available on VHS all DVD and Blu-Rays are downgraded to the rated version.

1)For some strange reason this has a couple of cut scenes which is silly considering the original vhs version is uncut.
2)Stephen Hopkins went on to direct Predator 2, Lost In Space & co-wrote & directed some episodes of season 1 of 24.
3)Stephen King & Frank Miller were approached to write & direct this film.
4)Strangely Lisa Wilcox name appears on the movie's opening credits but not on the end credits.
5)Lowest grossing Elm Street movie at $22 million less than half of Nightmare On Elm Street 4 The Dream Master's box office.
6)This only managed to reached number 8 in the top 10 movies when it was released on 11th August 1989.

A year on from the horrific event's of A Nightmare On Elm Street 4 The Dream Master survivor Alice starts having nightmares once again about Freddy Krueger who is targeting Alice through the sleeping mind of her unborn child.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 21 Feb. 2004
Format: DVD
I consider A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child a fairly impressive and certainly an important entry in the series, although I admit that it does have a few problems. Somewhat ironically, the success of the Elm Street franchise and Freddy in particular becomes a negative rather than a positive this time around. This was the second film in a row to be made without Wes Craven's guidance, and I think the filmmakers misinterpreted to some degree the secret of Freddy's success; they overplayed their hand by putting too much emphasis on new special effects tricks and Freddy witticisms instead of just letting Freddy be Freddy. In effect, our beloved anti-hero becomes a caricature of himself, and I as a viewer detect a barrier of some sort between myself and Freddy that stands in the way of my complete enjoyment of what I am watching. Had this fifth Elm Street film been forced to make do with a lower budget, it could have been something really impressive. The basic premise of the film is very sound and effective, and a couple of the killing motifs also bear traces of semi-brilliance, but the over-emphasis on special effects works against the filmmakers here.
Alice Johnson (Lisa Wilcox), the Dream Master of the fourth film, has picked up the pieces of her life and moved beyond her experiences with Freddy. She and Dan (Danny Hassel) are now a couple, and she and her new friends are all graduating from high school. Life is just great until she starts having disturbing dreams once again. In these dreams she and the audience actually witness a recreation of the stories (chronicled in the third film) of Freddy's conception and birth. We see Amanda trapped inside the tower with a hundred dangerous lunatics, then witness the birth of Amanda's child - it's an unusual delivery, to say the least.
