Highschool kid Jesse (Mark Patton) has been having nightmares for weeks now, in which his schoolbus is driven to certain doom by one Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), a terribly burnt man with a razorblade-glove. Thing is, his nightmares and Freddy Krueger eventually seem to start to take over his real life, and eventually, when Jesse dreams to kill the sadistic highschool coach (Marshall Bell), he turns up dead for real - and Jesse can't swear that he didn't do it. The next night he finds himself leaning over his kid sister's bed, wearing Freddy's razorblade glove ready to strike ... now he knows he's possessed by Freddy who wants to use him as a gaateway to the real world, and the only solution is that he won't sleep anymore - which makes him seem to be more and more of a weirdo to anyone around, only his girlfriend Lisa (Kim Myers) seems sympathetic ...

Thing is, at a party at Lisa's place, when the two are making out, he suddenly turns to Freddy and almost kills her before slaughtering quite a number of her partyguests. Later that night, Jesse - as himself again - shows up at his friend Ron's (Robert Rusler) house and asks him to watch over him while he sleeps - but once again, Jesse turns to Freddy, and he slaughters Ron as well.

Jesse then disappears, but Lisa, who has done some research on his dream character Freddy Krueger, figures she will be able to find him in the abandoned boiler room where Freddy once worked - and really, in the boiler room she comes face to face with Freddy, who has now totally taken over Jesse - or so it seems - but with a combination of your typical monsterfighting skills and pure love for Jesse, Lisa is able to get Jesse back and get rid of Freddy for good - or is she ?

 

Oh boy, what a waste of time, a totally unoriginal shocker (especially when compared to the original Nightmare on Elm Street) that's totally free of any tension or suspense instead relies entirely on its too silly to be true story and some (admittedly well-made) special effects. That most of the actors are not really up to their roles doesn't help one bit either, nor do their garish 1980's hairdos, makeup and outfits - ouch.

Without a doubt, one of the worst parts of the Nightmare on Elm Street-series.
