Overview

In the fifth installment in the Nightmare on Elm Street series, Alice Lisa Wilcox begins the film with the notion that she is safe after she vanquished the evil Freddy Krueger Robert Englund by learning how to battle the dreamworld psychopath within her own unconscious mind. But somehow Freddy has survived, and Alice discovers that he's found a place where Alice can't protect herself when he taps into the dreams of her unborn child. Freddy is soon leaving a trail of destruction while the child is still in the womb, and he will become even more deadly when the child comes to term. Memorable moments include Freddy's attack on a comic book artist and his Hellish experiences when "the bastard son of a hundred maniacs" is locked in an insane asylum with a nun. A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child was followed by Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, though Mr. Krueger popped up again in Wes Craven's New Nighmare.

    AWESOME

    This movie was great. It kind of made you think a bit ya know on how Freddy was doing this and killing these people while they were awake in a way. But it kind of made it physcological also. The guy that played Mark (Joe Seely) is a major hottie. I watch this movie just for him most the time but it is a good thriller will lots of great effects to keep you glued to the tv.

    IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Freddy Krueger(Robert Englund)returns to deliver a whole new breed of terror in his 5th movie! Unable to kill the DREAM MASTER who vanquished him in A Nightmare on Elm. Street 4,Freddy haunts the innocent dreams of her unborn baby and preys upon her freinds with sheer horror.Alice(Lisa Wilcox)must save her baby and herself from the clutches of the evil Freddy Krueger.Will the unborn child be saved from becoming Freddy's newest weapon or will the killer again resurrect his legacy of evil?I think this movie was a pretty good installment to the Nightmare series,I just don't a little of the story,Would have given it 5 if i wasn't for a little part of the movie.Rated R for gory violence,language,adult content,and brief nude.
