A Nightmare on Elm Street 5:
I think that at this point, any whisper of a point in this franchise was snuffed out. The Dream Child is a ridiculous, boring, and laughably cheesy entry in the Elm Street series that made everybody think that maybe it was time to let Freddy die for real.
Even Robert Englund seemed to be half-assing his performance here, and he's usually the saving grace of even the worst of the movies. The lack of story structure and apparent dedication to rap music provided a less than lackluster crapfest that I would recommend to no one.
The franchise sinks even lower with this amazingly boring installment of A Nightmare on Elm Street. The film pushes Freddy's comedic timing and one liners to all new highs; which seriously hurt the film. It also makes Freddy significantly less scary. The story line is extraordinarily convoluted and incoherent. I still barely understand Freddy's motives in this installment to this day.
The film also suffers from being a very boring entry in the franchise. Robert Englund still at least does the best he can with what is given to him. This is not only an overall lackluster entry in the franchise, it is also quite boring. Also, I still don't get the dedication to rap that the series embraced at this point.
