You thought it was over?! Just because Freddy’s dead, it doesn’t mean his creator is through with him. In one of the most clever sequels ever made, Wes Craven brings his most famous monster into the real world, making for a wildly different breed of horror film. Overlooked at the time, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare is a series high point, and Chris and Lizzie do their damnedest to elevate its status from curious Krueger footnote to modern horror classic!
