35 Years Ago: ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge’ Nearly Derails Franchise

There sure has been a lot of horror film talk around these parts lately. “‘Tis the season” goes the saying, but this is (maybe) the final entry on the topic for the year, one where I’ve focused on the second entry in the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Freddy’s Revenge.

The movie was renowned for all the wrong reasons: no Wes Craven, (almost) no Robert Englund, going with a final boy instead of a final girl, rampant gay subtext and the attempted usage of homophobia to elicit discomfort in the audience. Head over to Ultimate Classic Rock, where I get into all the sordid, unfortunate details.
