"...Clever special effects, a good leading performance and a villain so chatty he practically makes this a human-interest story....Scary, but not without touches of humor..."
Variety - 10/30/1985
"...Well-made....An imaginative series of special effects....Reprising his monster role, Robert Englund is a frightening addition to the horror pantheon..."

A rotting, corpse-like creature returns from the dead, possessing the body of a young man and forcing him to commit unspeakable acts of violence.
In this sequel to the box-office smash "A Nightmare on Elm Street," Freddy Krueger's back and still out for revenge. The story unfolds five years later, as Jesse Walsh, a new teen in town, moves into the house that previously belonged to Nancy, the heroine of the first movie.
Jesse remains blissfully unaware of the supernatural presence haunting the house -- until Freddy starts invading his dreams. The undead creature wants to take over Jesse's body and renew his murderous vendetta against the local kids.
In a last, anguished attempt to save his own and his friends' lives, Jesse gathers his pals together to fight Freddy off and destroy him, once and for all.
