Nightmare on Elm Street 5 : The Dream Child, A

"Children begin their nightmares a long time before they are born..."

Alice and Danís lives have returned to normal. Convinced that they have nothing to fear, they plan the birth of a child. It is then that nightmares about Freddy Krueger start once again. After stealing Danís life, Freddy attacks the child before he is even born.

Aliceís new friends have trouble believing such a thing but support the woman they consider traumatized. Quickly, they realize that she is not crazy. Freddy has found a new way to kill and he slaughters everyone she loves. Alice is very determined to end this once and for all.





A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child is the first episode to try to end the series and explain the reason for the events. A quick view of Freddyís parents is appreciated. We are shown a gang of retards of the mental institute raping what seems to be Freddy Kruegerís mother. Then, in a crowd, we can distinguish the official father, played by Robert Englund. I must have seen A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master over two hundred times. Here, the characters are less attaching but resemble those of the previous episode by their interesting personalities, talents and their solidarity.

Alice continuously encounters her future child, when he is nine or ten years old, in her dreams. A part from the fact that the child is ugly enough to win contests, a characteristic that does not come from his mother, he is very irritating. A Nightmare on Elm Street has always threatened the lives of teenagers and children should not be a part of it.

Anyways, the murders are original and actors, very good. Danís death is troubling and very well presented. Everything that doesn't have a direct relationship with the child is perfect. Sadly, for an obscure reason, the quality of the sound is awful. I saw this movie in three versions and it seems to be widespread.
