    A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 - Freddy's Reveng... (1985)

    This movie is not what most fans would have expected from the quality of the first Nightmare film, but it could have been worse. It seemed that the story picked up very good from the beginning, but then bogs down for fifty minutes before picking up for the last five minutes. The biggest let-down was the fact that Krueger was only seen in this movie for about 12 minutes of the entire film. The rest was his "doing", but simply not done with his body being shown. However, with the obvious success of the first A Nightmare On Elm Street film, the franchise has been given such a huge reputation from the first movie that it was only minorly impacted by this movie. Robert Englund said in an interview that he "had some problems in the middle of part two. [He] liked the beginning and end of part two very much..." (from a YouTube video that was deleted... sorry!)
