However, I should warn people that I’m in the minority when it comes to the latter Nightmare on Elm Street movies. The first one was a classic (and pretty scary). However, as the series went on, the main villain (Freddy Kruger) got less and less scary and more and more funny. This turned a lot of people off the franchise, yet I still enjoy it.

If you don’t know much about the story then Part 5 is probably an odd place to start. It follows the pretty samey formula of ‘dream demon’ Freddy Kruger, as he stalks another load of teenagers in their dreams and despatches them in yet more ingenious and gruesome ways.

This time Freddy faces his previous teenage nemesis ‘Alice’ and her new friends, all of which have a single personality type which Freddy will later use in their worst nightmares.

I would say that if you like horror films in general you’ll like this, but it’s not very horrific (although the – non CGI – special effects aren’t bad here and there. It’s no mistake that Robert (Freddy) Englund gets top billing, as he steals every scene. It’s more a horror comedy as Freddy delights in spouting of yet more one-liners while he ‘works.’ If you like your horror ‘straight’ you may not appreciate this entry. However, if you enjoyed the slightly more ‘light-hearted’ way Part 4 was done, then you should enjoy this, too.
