  1. **jacob****'s rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    A lot of gay subtext here. I'm into it.

  2. Matheus Cassano's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    Well, I guess being gay is not such a grand idea after all. Thanks!

  3. Ricardo Branco's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    Homoerotic and gore is too sexy

  4. Cimino!'s rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    It's a given that with the Nightmare series, you shouldn't bother watching the sequels. Yet part 2 needs your respect: basically, a homoerotic remake of the first movie. In other words, the most unlikely cash-in sequel in the history of cash-in sequels.

    freddy crashing the pool party was tremendous

  9. the_mentaculus's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    When taken on its own terms, this is a better-than-average scarefest. It has more in common with Jacob's Ladder or Angel Heart than the ANOES series, and in a way creates a Lovecraftian descent into personal madness and fear - which pushes Freddy to the background. That it even has a subtext (surprisingly gay!) makes it worth a look.

  10. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    Dat homoerotic subtext, doe.

  11. ceknklsn's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

  12. Renton47's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    A further desecration on any attempts to make logical Freddy's dreamtime powers, and a series of fairly lackluster murders as well. It's a curious artifact for the canonical reasons, yet it's pairing of the closeted with the homicidal and molestation themes keep it far from noble. Best viewed, like 'Halloween 3' as its own thing, unfortunately that thing's not great.

  13. Elena Lazic's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

  14. Rocco's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    A massive pile of garbage, but still a fascinating footnote in Queer Cinema history.

  15. Gustavo Razera's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    This sequel felt more effective than the much-heralded original because the character's bad dreams are more vividly related to his daytime problems, which adds a layer of thematic consistency to the concept. Production values are better, as well as the imaginative special effects - though the acting from the younger crowd hasn't improved a bit and the cast lacks cool names such as Ronnee Blakely and Johnny Depp.

  16. yasdnil's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    Same story, different people. Sigh. Well, on to the next one! ;)

  19. JackButcher's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    I actually rate this one almost as good as the original, despite the fact it's one of the most series-breaking entries, it actually has a lot of subtext in this film...

  20. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    Horrendous! Admittedly, all the other movies in this series are not that good but this one has to be the worst. Awful acting throughout and I could not decide if I should laugh or cry at all the histrionics. The lead actor is beyond terrible and the gay subtext is poorly handled. Not even a competent composer like Christopher Young manages to muster up any sense of urgency in this mess of a movie.

  21. courtneylesueur's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

  22. Giles J Davis's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    A gay horror movie to juxtapose the horrors of living gay in post AIDS America? Nightmare 2 was one of the first horror movies to use a gay actor to play the closeted hero. Mark Patton became the first, male, scream queen after discovering Coach Schneider in an S&M bar and giving the classic lines spoken between Jesse and Ron "Something evil is trying to get inside my body" "So you've come here to sleep with me?"

  23. John's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    Plenty of funny homoerotic stuff. Bringing Freddy out of dreams and into reality makes it loose some charm.

  24. mjgildea's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    Pure crap but hysterical. Admittedly I haven't seen it since the 80s but the closet case subtext couldn't be more obvious. The kid playing Jesse makes RuPaul look like John Wayne for crissakes! Plenty of great awfulness and Lisa was pretty cute in a goofy 80s kind of way.
