  1. captainfez's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    A Freddy rap and a skateboarding bit? HOW DO YOU DO FELLOW YOUTHS?

    freddy doesn't just shred teenagers, he shreds a skateboard too \m/

  3. Bob's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    High production value and some creative ideas make this the most gothic sequel. Unfortunately, most of the ideas are explorations of not so interesting Freddy Krueger's origins from part 3. And they are combined with pregnancy of the main heroine. So, final result is a movie that takes itself too seriously for what it is, and some scenes are just embarrassing to watch. Still, it's passable for the fifth entry.

  4. William's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    I give this the slight edge over #4, as the nightmarish fetus that leads to Freddy's rebirth and the M.C. Escher-esque ending are sort of interesting.

  5. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    At least the series still have a red thread with elements that are continued from the former one and Robert Englund is still watchable, but the death sequences, story and dreams are on auto-pilot now. A terrible child actor don't help either and there is an obvious ending and laughable story about Krueger needing a protege. Close to being the worst film but barely as the second one is so much more stupid.

  6. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    A weak Nightmare is still a fun one. Besides the writers went full-experimental with this one.

  7. Nolan Barth's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    Wow. Where to begin with this one? I am a huge horror fan and for the most part I love the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. However, even as a huge fan of the series I struggle to find anything redeemable about this entry. The plot is convoluted and ridiculous. The characters are shallow and dull. To top it all off the kills and dream sequences just feel uninspired. The Dream Child is borderline unwatchable...

    i thought this would be better than it was

  9. Renton47's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    Arguably the most visually, conceptually audacious film in the franchise so far. One of the best utilisation of the dream sequences, as well as an outlandish plot make this a big improvement on #4. However... there is a peak on dodginess, and the acting, dialogue and plain messiness of this prevent it from rivalling #1 or #3.

  10. Louis Léonard's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    0.5 / 5 That chapter super-sucked... worst of them all.

  11. JackButcher's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    The series did take a turn for the worse here but there was a few ridiculous scenes that made it worth watching

  12. Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    can't believe freddy got beat by a fetus

  13. João R.'s rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    The diner table scene was disturbing.

  14. film_lies101's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child

    At least 4 had the cool, goofy death scenes. This was just a bore
