Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge

<a href=”“>918FB1dciyL. RI SX300  Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge

Freddy’s back…and he wants revenge. When teenager Jesse Walsh moves to Elm Street, Freddy Krueger starts appearing in his nightmares.

As impressed as I was with the first film, the second one is better in nearly every way. There’s a great look into the boiler room Fred worked at, something only vaguely hinted at in the first movie, much more use of fire as one of Freddy’s tools, explosive birds, a father that refuses to hire help to fix the a/c in the Hellhouse, A grade gore (specifically the coach’s back in the shower, youch!), a fantastic pool party, and then wrapped up with an impressively steady long shot of one of the main characters running around the previously mentioned boiler room. It took me a couple rewinds to even figure out how they made the shot, but even knowing how it was done doesn’t lessen how impressed I was with the lighting, stability and planning that had to go into those 30-45 seconds of screen time.
