About A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge, the sequel to the 1984 horror classic, was released in 1985 to mixed reviews. While some praised the film's inventive special effects and Freddy Krueger's continued reign of terror, others criticized its departure from the original's formula and its heavy-handed use of homoerotic subtext.
The film follows Jesse (Mark Patton), a teenage boy who moves into the house on Elm Street where Nancy, the protagonist of the first film, lived. Soon, he begins to experience terrifying nightmares featuring Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), who seems to be using Jesse as a vessel to carry out his evil deeds in the waking world.
While the film's plot may seem familiar, its use of subtext was a departure from the original. Director Jack Sholder has since acknowledged that the film's themes of sexual repression and coming out were intentional, but the film's producers were reportedly unaware of the subtext during production.
Despite its mixed reception, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge has gained a cult following over the years, with some fans appreciating its unique take on the franchise. The film's impact on the horror genre and its place in the Nightmare on Elm Street canon continue to be debated by fans and critics alike.
