So I was trying to figure out what movie to watch and I saw that this was on so I decided to watch it over again so I can give a review about it and know what I am talking about. Now the reason why I had to watch this over again was because I don’t completely remember it due to the fact that I hated the movie and only watched it once before. The opening scene of the movie starts out with Robert Englund driving a bus full of kids until eventually only three kids are on it and then he turns into Freddy and drives the bus into a open field and the ground starts falling apart and the bus is held up above what it looked like to be hell by one little area of the ground that did not collapse, and just as Freddy goes to kill the kids the boy Jesse wakes up. After seeing that scene I thought that this was going to be a solid movie but boy was I wrong, it all started to go downhill from that. We find out that Jesse moved into Nancy’s old house on elm street which can be why he is having these nightmares, but what doesn’t make sense is that we find out that Freddy is not trying to kill Jesse, but he is just trying to use Jesse as an assassin. Jesse continues to tell Freddy no for a little while but towards the middle of the film Jesse goes out to a bar and his coach sees him there so he stops Jesse from drinking and brings him back to the gym and forces him to run laps. When the coach sees that Jesse has had enough he tells him to hit the showers and this is when it gets weird, Freddy starts throwing all the balls in the coaches office at him and eventually ties him up and brings him in the showers to Jesse, and at that point smoke fills the showers and Freddy comes out and kills the coach. The weird thing was that when the smoke went down again Jesse had Freddy’s glove on his hand so basically Jesse killed the coach and that is the first time we see Freddy possess Jesse. After that we soon see Freddy come out of Jesse’s body while he is sleeping and kill his friend but then it cuts back to Jesse and you see him covered in the blood and wearing Freddy’s glove, and those are really the only two kills we see. Jesse was traumatized after that and runs to his girlfriends and she tries to calm him down but he has no control of anything anymore like Jesse says in the movie Freddy owns him, and then all of a sudden Jesse turns into Freddy and traps all the people at the party so they can’t leave and he just starts trying to kill as much people as he can. When he is done at the party Freddy leaves and Jesse’s girlfriend Lisa follows him to a factory and tries to get Jesse to fight him and to kick him out of his body because Jesse is stronger then he is and it actually works, we see flames burn Freddy and then Jesse comes out of Freddy’s burnt body and overcoming the bad guy. Overall I hated this movie it was completely irrelevant to the character that Freddy is supposed to be, in this film there really wasn’t a motive he was just killing anyone he wanted to and I didn’t understand that possessing shit like that killed the movie. The kill count was low and the kill scenes weren’t good at all. I don’t recommend this movie but if you are going to watch the whole franchise then you should watch it, it will make you appreciate the other films.
I give this movie a 4/10
