Because nothing says giggly slasher escapism quite like child endangerment and abortion discussions. Please pass the popcorn.

When a movie gives up before the one-minute mark, you know you're in for a long haul.

The series here takes a depressing nosedive into zero-degree filmmaking.

Fifth edition of the hit Nightmare series is a poorly constructed special effects showcase.

The progressively convoluted nature of its storyline ultimately stands as A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child's most egregious failing...

Neither an improvement nor a failure over the previous film, this movie begins stretching the credibility of its victims' deaths.

Despite an impressive bag of special effects tricks, old Fred is starting to resemble one of those dead horses that studio execs insist on flogging.

Freddy Krueger is now a full-blown cartoonish caricature of his initially dread-induced former self.

As for Englund, he still looks as if he's been working at Domino's too long, and he still sounds as if he's stealing his material from Don Rickles.

Even horror movies need some kind of rules to go by -- but Nightmare 5 is all over the map, little more than a bizarre free-for-all. It is confusing and dumb.
