Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child
- 1h 29m
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
What "The Dream Child" most successfully carries to term is an empathetic, emotional engagement of teenage trauma and pregnancy. It reflects a decade-ending boiling point in the tension between Hollywood button-pushers and political pencil-pushers.
Dream Child is a series low-point. Any terror or menace from Freddy Krueger is now gone in favor of a failing stand-up comedian. Lisa Wilcox tries her best to carry a lackluster cast of characters whose deaths (almost) all lean into the silly and stupid.
