I love the series, ridiculous as some of them are. My least favorite has always been part 6. It pushes the limits of stupidity. It's still a lot of fun, but man it's as watchable as a vat of frying chicken gizzards.
VOTE for which one you dislike the most.

I voted for "Dream Child". I may be a minority, but I think the bad reputation of part 2 is not fair. I really like it, even though the sets look like something from a crappy TV show. It's so unlike any of the other entries, which again makes it interesting. I forget the kid's name but the guy who plays the lead is pretty good, and we all know Kim Myers will be cast in the lead of "The Meryl Streep Story". Part 3 is quite good too with a great cast; Wasson, Rubin and Arquette. Actually, I never liked this series very much so I should probably vote for all of them; I'm more of a "Friday" fan myself.

What a corny ass way to kill off Freddy! I have the Nightmare Box Collection & in the X-tras disc, the funny thing is Nightmare 6 Director Rachel Talalay even agrees she made a weak flick & brought an even weaker death to Freddy!

I'm with U Yowie, in that I didn't think Nightmare 2 wuz all THAT bad! Sure it didn't follow the story as it should have, but Freddy was at least still SCARY in Nightmare 2. He was a joke by the time Nightmare 6 rolled around & when Craven tried to make him "scary" again in Nightmare 7 it was too late!

I voted for The Dream Child. (What a bore!) To its credit, this lethargic entry boasts some cool imagery. Freddy's Dead was a major letdown. Can't wait to see what Talalay does with Preacher.:rolleyes:

I really liked Part 2 as well, it broke several of the "rules" the films film had set, and kept the audience guessing. Plus, the whole gay undertone thing can be pretty humourous.

Part 5 was the pits though. A lame idea, with some ugly gore effects. The 100 maniacs scene in the first dream sequence was well done, but the film just seemed completely by the numbers to me.

I liked Freddy's Dead, although not near as much as some of the other films. The 3D sequence was totally cool, and the look at Freddy's past was interesting and would have made the film much better if they would have elaborated on that.

Dream Warriors <b>is</b> a great sequel, and one could argue that it even betters the original. The effects were really well done, and the direction was sharp as nails.

I don't see why people like Dream Masters so much though...I found it rather disappointing. I guess it seemed too MTV for me. Again, some effects were nicely done, but the plot was pretty lame.

New Nightmare had an awesome premise, and Wes Craven really did a good job in blurring reality, Hollywood and dreams...but I thought the climactic sequence was a let down to the rest of the film. Still very enjoyable though!

Great poll!

I voted for Part 2. But Part 6 is just as bad, to me. I just have fonder memories of it as I saw it in the theater with some friends.

I agree that Part 3 might be even better than the original, but I also like Part 4. Five is OK and 7 is pretty good, too, I think.

I have decided that turning off NOES 2 back when I rented the VHS was a bad move. I just watched the DVD the other night and it's pretty good! Totally turns around. I like it a lot.

So far I haven't seen a NOES flick I didn't like, but I still haven't seen 4, 5, or 6, which seem to be the ones that most of y'all hate. Guess I have to see 'em.

All of them. I hate freddy as much as I hate vampires.:eek:

Part 2 might be a big piece of shit, but Part 5 is the worst Freddy film of all time and the original negative to it should be burned.

Got to go with part 6, it is the biggest piece of shit!

10-27-2001, 02:28 AM
2 and 6 blew big time.

I really like part 2! It's strange that so many people hate it. It's kind of silly at times, but by far darker than the ones that follow, which i appreciate a ton. It's more of a straight slasher than a monster/supernatural movie, but still scary, IMO.

Hey, DeepDownTraumaHound, I like Part 2 either, I think it is terribly underrated, one of the best of the series, I think Liza is a cutie! Part 6, Freddy's Dead is the worst of the bunch. My favorite is of course the original.
