Lisa, his prospective girlfriend, discovers Nancy's diary in Jesse's closet, and slowly he learns of his predecessor's ordeal. When his

Episodic treatment is punched up by an imaginative series of special effects.
The film hangs reasonably well together, not least because of good performances from all concerned.
Mr. Patton and Miss Myers make likable teen-age heroes, and Mr. Englund actually turns Freddy into a welcome presence.
An uneven, tedious, and sloppy sequel with plot holes, lapses in logic and horrible performances...
Possibly the lamest of all the sequels, although Five and Six later set the bar particularly low.
Very weird, homoerotic flick, but very entertaining in a 80s kindofaway
Although Jesse and Lisa are granted some much-needed time to get it on, he and the film would appear in unison in that they're still waiting to come out of the closet.
The second film of the series departs from the storyline dramatically, leaving the impression that it doesn't fit into the series.
I must give credit where it's due: this is pretty unique in its stupidity.
A work of high camp, even if Freddy himself is often reduced to an annoying nocturnal emission that will inevitably ruin a pool party.
Freddy's nails are a little blunt here
Kim Myers is an engaging heroine, but otherwise this is little more than a repeat of the original (it even takes place in the same house), just with less originality.
The darkest of the Elm Street series. Gets cheesy, but is still fun ... if you're stoned.
The worst of the Nightmares. Don't bother turning on to this Elm Street.
