About a year after the events of ‘The Dream Master’ survivors Alice Johnson and Dan Jordan are now dating and are on the verge of graduating from high school with plans of going off to Europe afterwards; the only problem seems to be that Alice has been having reoccurring nightmares about Amanda Krueger and the ordeal she suffered while trapped in the secret wing of the Westin Hills insane asylum. On the night of their graduation, Alice is on her way to work when she suffers another dream, this one showing the birth of Freddy Krueger and confirming her fears that Freddy has once again returned. Alice wastes no time in calling Dan about her discovery, but a tragic accident takes place and Alice awakens in a hospital, where she learns that she is pregnant with Dan’s child. Alice’s life is turned even more upside down: firstly when she meets a young boy at the hospital, named Jacob (Whitby Hertford), only to learn afterwards that there were no children in the ward, and secondly when her new friends once more start falling victim to Freddy’s evil. In response to all the strange things that are happening, Alice orders an early ultrasound, from which she finally gathers that Freddy is using the dreams of her unborn child to get to her friends and also plans to use the fetes to once more be born into the real world. Now with two lives to fight for, Alice, aided by her friend Yvonne (Kelly Jo Minter), sets out to recover the remains of Amanda Krueger that just might be the key to stopping Freddy once and for all. Freddy’s wisecracks had by now lost their ability to amuse and the series had already stopped being scary after the original, all adding up to a rather mundane effort - still it remains better than ‘Freddy’s Revenge’. Director Stephen Hopkins was given a total of only eight weeks to shoot and edit this film, which meant he had to shoot on one stage while the other was being prepared, in order for them to shoot almost constantly; his success in this task got him assigned to also direct ‘Predator 2’ (horrors referenced: ‘Alien’, ‘Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn’ and ‘Psycho’, followed by: ‘Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare’). 1989. DVD & Blue-ray.
