Creature features 👾 slashers 🔪 classic horror 🎃
I don't care what anyone says about this movie...I think it's damn near flawless. I saw it in 2004 when it came out and was on the edge of my seat then. It had an all star cast (including an uncredited Jessie Eisenberg and Michael Pitt of Boardwalk Empire fame) it satisfied my love of period pieces, the color palette and wardrobe are perfect. I love the creature design and it tells a love story without being too sappy. Ivy…
Only slightly better than the first installment. It's clear that the 70s themeing in this was put together by people who grew up in the 80s and 90s. Its mostly 80s throwback, even the clothing is inaccurate. I don't feel an attachment to any of the characters and none of these actors pass for 70s teens. The Alice character is super annoying. This whole series just feels like it is trying to emulate stranger things...which I also don't like. Also this movie felt like it was about an hour too long
I love this film I actually liked it a tab bit more than the first Nightmare on Elm Street. The effects are great. The opening bathroom scene with Kristen is awesome. I love the Dokken song, this film also gave us Syringe finger freddy, that kill is so sad/good. I also love the skeleton junkyard fight near the end. This movie is fun and packed with lovable characters. Freddy has some great one liners here "welcome to prime time bitch" the kills are very creative like the first film. I will definitely watch this again.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I liked this more than I thought I would. Good creature effects. Good tension builder. Mostly female cast. Gritty/dirty. I didn't agree with the death of Juno, I don't think she deserved to be killed over her mistake. Character development could have been better, I was not attached to any of the characters. But it was still a good film
