A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

"Bad"

A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child Review


Alice (Lisa Wilcox) survived Nightmare 4, only to find herself knocked up by Freddy in installment #5 -- as he tries to become born for real into the world. Huh? It doesn't make a lick of sense, and gets all the worse when Freddy's mother appears to put a stop to his shenanigans. That said, there's a force-feeding fatality that is so absurd it's worth a peek. Probably the worst of the Nightmare on Elm Street flicks.
