Alice and her boyfriend Dan are back! One year later, everyone has graduated from high school and Alice has even managed to make a whole new group of quirky friends: Greta, who is being forced by her mother to become a supermodel; Yvonne, who is good at diving; and Mark, token awkward weird 80s kid who really like comics.
Freddy is back too, and of course you know you are gonna be watching Alice trying to convince everyone of this for at least the first half of the movie. It gets pretty annoying. She will wake up from a dream or whatever and go, "OH MY GOD IT'S FREDDY WE HAVE TO STOP HIM!!! HE'S BACK!!" You would think after the fifth time she gets the evil eye from whoever she is babbling at she would wise up and be a little less hysterical. Luckily for her, all her friends are killed by Freddy and so eventually people start listening to her. Who's laughing now you jerks?!
As you may recall from the previous entry in the series, Freddy needs to use Alice to get to other kids because he can only kill the original Elm Street kids. Alice isn't an original Elm Street kid, but her friend Kristen, who was, gave Alice the Dream Master power before being killed. You may recall that the Dream Master power allows you to bring your friends to Freddy to be killed, regardless of what street they are from.
But wait! Alice doesn't sleep ever so how is this happening? Well, the Dream Master power is apparently hereditary and it has passed down to Alice's ugly unborn baby. And since babies are useless and all they do is sleep all day that gives Freddy plenty of chances to kill Alice's new friends in fitting and ironic ways. Well Mr. Comic Guy, I hear you like the comics. How much would you like comics if you were killed by them??
This is the general level of creativity that goes into this film. You like ____? Well I'm gonna kill you with ____!
This is possibly the worst movies in the series. The characters are all pretty annoying, though it's not quite at the level where you hate them all instantly. The direction and colors and pretty much everything are such a huge step down from The Dream Master, which is the best looking film in the series. There was only one way to go from here, and that was the way of ridiculousness. But that is a story for another day.
