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.
