Grimbo’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is the second best in the series after the original and unfortunetly the rot sets in after this.
We are back to Freddy only appearing in dreams (except when he's a skeleton apparently).
Features some great characters, some creative deaths and iconic scenes (puppets, snakes, needles).
He does become less of a slasher type in this, but like I said the kills are creative and not as dumb as they would become later in the series.
