Sunday Spotlight: "Robert Englund"

In discussing horror movie sequels, especially following up Wes Craven’s “Scream franchise,” its almost imperative to follow up with a few movies from Nightmare on Elm Street.

While the most recent version is Freddy vs Jason my favorites are Nightmare on Elm Street 4: “Dream Warrior,” #5 Dream Child, and Wes Craven’s “New Nightmare.”
The early Nightmares on Elm Street roll into each other very subtly. It is easy to get them confused so I will do my best to dissect them as we roll on.

The early movies are direct sequels to the others, at least 1-5. One of the kids from the second movie are sent to a mental institution in the third movie where Heather, the only survivor from the original is a counselor. She has been there where they’ve been. Alice realizes she can pull people into her dreams. As her friends are killed off she realizes she can absorb their powers for an ultimate showdown with Freddy, including her brother’s martial arts skills. Shy and kinda quiet she defeats Freddy and learns to control her dreams so that he can’t get through to her subconscious.
As we roll through sequels we will wrap up with the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise and perhaps a review of Robert Englund’s autobiography, “Hollywood Monster.”
