Not as bad as history has confirmed it, Freddy's actual revenge and original sequel poorly delivers but sets an strange path for a playful villain. [Full review in Spanish].

Freddy's nails are a little blunt here

I must give credit where it's due: this is pretty unique in its stupidity.

October 4, 2010
An uneven, tedious, and sloppy sequel with plot holes, lapses in logic and horrible performances...

Kim Myers is an engaging heroine, but otherwise this is little more than a repeat of the original (it even takes place in the same house), just with less originality.

...a weak retread of its marginally superior predecessor...

The second film of the series departs from the storyline dramatically, leaving the impression that it doesn't fit into the series.

January 1, 2000
The script is very shallow, with blood and gore to satisfy the audience, and very little dialogue, which, if there had been more, would have helped the script develop appropriately.

The worst of the Nightmares. Don't bother turning on to this Elm Street.

The sequel is clunky, sluggish, poorly cast, not funny, and worst of all, not scary. And it all but dispenses with what made the first film scary to begin with.
January 1, 2000
The acting, so as to give it a label, is extremely non existent.

Possibly the lamest of all the sequels, although Five and Six later set the bar particularly low.

Freddy [i]s a threat to Jesse's burgeoning queerness. He is a manifestation of Jesse's own internalized homophobia, so when sexual situations arise that might naturally encourage Jesse to consider his "unorthodox for the 80s" sexuality, Freddy pops out
May 6, 2019
An allegory about the dangers of being forced to repress your sexuality, and also a fun slice of Freddy's nightmare world.

December 30, 2006
A work of high camp, even if Freddy himself is often reduced to an annoying nocturnal emission that will inevitably ruin a pool party.
January 17, 2008
Although Jesse and Lisa are granted some much-needed time to get it on, he and the film would appear in unison in that they're still waiting to come out of the closet.
