Tony the Terror😼🏳️🌈 👻’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’m not sure I would have given this quite as high a rating when it first came out, but damn if it isn’t a movie that somehow gets better with time even if it has a fair share of faults. The Freddy makeup in this one isn’t the best, but Robert Englund still owns the role with unabashed glory. I love Lisa Zane in a NOES moviemand I can’t even tell you why. I just know that it’s the right choice.
I never got a chance to see this in 3D but i guarantee this would have been just as popular with or without that trick. I guess the important thing is that this didn't actually end the franchise and hopefully we will continue to get more movies even if they are continuations of the remake. Studio execs these days just don’t seem to know how to handle iconic franchises and that’s a real shame.
