A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy returns five years after the original movie's setting, with none of the same cast (save Robert Englund) and little of its charm. This time out, Freddy attempts to possess a student named Jesse (Mark Patton, at 21 years old, makes for a bit of an overgrown teenager), so he can do his dirty work in the real world. Freddy's Revenge unfortunately is mostly relegated to the audience who has to sit through this rather disastrous sequel. Kim Myers is an engaging heroine, but otherwise this is little more than a repeat of the original (it even takes place in the same house), just with less originality.
