This review is from: Nightmare Elm Street:Freddy's: Freddy Krueger's Seven Sweetest Dreams (Paperback)
"Freddy Krueger's seven sweetest dreams" is a collection of seven gruesome horror stories featuring Freddy Krueger the supernatural killer from the "Nightmare on Elm street" films.
While they are all horror stories they are quite varied in terms of style and tone. Some are scary, some are tragic and some are just completely bizarre. In William Relling Juniors's "Le Morte de Freddy" Doctor Neil Gordon, from "A nightmare on Elm street part 3", attempts to help another psychiatrist stop Freddy from killing the kids at an asylum. While in Bentley Little's "Miles to go before I sleep" Freddy possesses a mild mannered janitor in order to go on a killing spree and in "Asleep at the wheel" by Brian Hodge Freddy carries out a gruesome revenge on a rock band that dares to stay in his house.
The seven stories in this book are: "Asleep at the wheel" by Brian Hodge, "Briefcase full of blues" by Tom Elliot, "Miles to go before I sleep" by Bentley Little, "Le Morte de Freddy" by William Relling Junior, "Dead highway, lost roads" by Philip Nutman, "Close my eyes and I'll kiss you" by Wayne Allen Sallee and "Not just a job" by Nancy A. Collins.
All in all it is a good collection of horror stories which does not require the reader to have watched the "Nightmare on Elm Street" films as Freddy's origin and background are covered in these stories. But being a fan of the films I would recommend watching them anyway.
