Nightmare on Elm st Part 5: the Dream Child, continues the storyline of Alice in the final part of the Dream Trilogy. Her bf Dan dies in a car accident and she learns she is pregnant with his child. Alice has the ability to control her dreams (an ability she gained from Kristen from Part 4) as to not bring back Freddy. The only problem is when a baby starts to develop it dreams and this baby can’t help but enter his mother’s dreams and dream of Freddy. Freddy uses this as a chance to return once more. While Alice tried to save her child, her best friend seeks out the ghost of Amanda Kruegar Freddy’s mom, the only person who can save Alice’s child.
Part 5 did not do as well as the last installment and was a rehash of a storyline involving Freddy’s mom again. In Part 3 we already got the ghost who helps everyone, it was not needed a second time around. Robert Englund is great as Freddy , but once again you can see the overly humorous side of the whole thing. It gets very slap sticky and weird at times. Hats off to the production team as we once again get a great look into the dream world that Freddy lives in. The grossest part is the Freddy baby that tries to be born, its sick and twisted at the same time. If you’re looking for a bunch of great horror comedies the last few entries in the franchise can’t be beat in a twisted sick kind of way.
