Episode 6: Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge

This week we return to Springwood, Indiana, home of ugly sweater enthusiast Freddy “Fred” Krueger. With the original movie’s protagonist Nancy MIA, Freddy sets his sights on new kid Jesse and his tight man cave (you know, his bedroom with the “NO CHICKS” sign on the door – it’s tight as hell). Jesse’s the consummate player: whether he’s getting pants-ed in gym class by his best friend, pounding free beers at the bondage bar, or watching his gym teacher getting whipped naked in the shower, it’s obvious he’s only got one thing on his mind – BANGING CHICKS. Sadly, Freddy Cockblock has to derail Jesse’s game with desert road trips, spontaneous avian combustion, and worst of all, breaking Lisa’s parents’ collector’s plates. After all this mess, it’s no wonder Jesse’s actor Mark Patton said, “I’m out!”

We’re dipping into the kiddie pool for next week’s pick, 1983’s BMX Bandits. This Australian adventure sees Nicole Kidman as one of three youths that get caught up in a gang’s bank robbing scheme and somehow bring them down after a contrived bike chase through Sydney. If you’ve been waiting to see someone go down a giant waterslide with their bike, well, now’s your chance!

Remember almost every movie we watch is available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube!

  1. Growing up this movie confused me like no other. It simply didn’t fit in with the rest of the series. I’d easily rate this as one of the worst Nightmare films. Although, at least Freddy didn’t kill anyone with a power glove in this one.

    I agree 100% with what y’all said about the real world / dream world mix ups in this movie. They took the precedent about Freddy’s realm only being in dreams and threw it out. And for no good reason too. It’s like the screenwriter found it too hard to work with, so simply decided to ignore the whole dream thing.

    The transformation scene is awesome! When the blades first come out of his fingers, you can’t help but make a fist or rub the tips of your fingers imagining how much that would hurt.

    The ending was just bad. It’s obvious they wanted a fake happy ending like the first so they could have 1 more “gotcha” moment before reminding us to expect another movie shortly. But the effect was terrible, notice no blood or gore from the claw bursting out of her chest, and the run away bus only reminded me of the run away golf cart in Ernest Goes to Camp, how it was bouncing away.
