Wes Craven’s New Nightmare

MV5BZjMzNzQwNmQtMTdhOC00MzVlLThlZmEtNTIwYmQyMjJkMjExXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTQxNzMzNDI@. V1  Wes Craven’s New Nightmare

This time staying awake won’t save you… The horrifying child killer returns, stepping out of his celluloid world to haunt the life of the actress who first defeated him on film.

Movie opens with them saying “it’s only make believe”, which is the most incorrect thing that can be made in a Freddy film. Heather Langenkamp returns as the same girl from the first and third Nightmare films and her eyes are still uncannily blue. There’s a major shift in tone from the previous films, as this isn’t an action horror comedy, this is more of a psychological horror film. With this change of tone is a different type of soundtrack, much more orchestral and emotional and less campy fun.

There’s a few cool moments (the transition towards the end from reality to the movie was absolutely amazing) and some great acting. Of the original Nightmare films, I think this is the second best one, only behind the original.
