gdecker’s review published on Letterboxd:
This isn't the scariest of the Nightmare movies, but it's probably my favourite entry. This one has tons of iconic scenes, and I really feel that the wisecracking Freddy we get is what most people associate with he character.
The premise is prett simple - a group of teens in an asylum are all being haunted by Freddy. Nancy from the original Elm Street is a new doctor at the facility, and she learns these teens are dealing what she once did.
This has some of my favourite kills in the series, including the human marionette and the TV scene. Everything about this is very creative, and the special effects and props are great.
The only thing that holds this movie back is the character of Dr. Parker. He's another doctor at the facility, and he gets way too much screen time for a largely useless character. He could have easily been written out of this movie.
