3,4, and 5 are a great trilogy within the series. This one the quality slips a little in my opinion but it's still great.

I really want to like this movie more than I do. It's just not great. I love Lisa Wilcox as Alice and I think she does a great job in the role. The other actors are pretty good too. I don't like the way Robert portrays Freddy in this movie. I don't think it's his fault. I just think the direction and writing isn't very strong. I'm not a fan of the gothic visuals. It feels out of place in a Nightmare film. You can tell this movie was rushed out and the cuts made to the death scenes is a travesty. I'd say this is worth a watch if you love Alice from Dream Master. If not, you won't miss much by passing this one up.

I could watch 3, 4, and 5 back to back. Love the nostalgia. Wished there were more kills but still takes me back to childhood! People on here getting upset about little things are annoying. Take it for what is it, and enjoy it. I always do.
