Wes Craven’s New Nightmare

1994 / d. Wes Craven
After a slew of sequels transformed Freddy Krueger into a joke-toting supernatural psychopath, Wes Craven stepped in and gave the bastard his balls back. Infusing mythology and a clever film-within-a-film plot, Craven re-invented the character as an ancient entity of supreme evil. A well spun and effective end to the Nightmare franchise, NEW NIGHTMARE brings the series full circle and ends on a high-point.
