Wes Craven's New Nightmare | 1994 | R | - 0.8.5

Wes Craven's dreams begin to dictate real-life horrors for the stars of the original "A Nightmare On Elm Street."

SEX/NUDITY 0 - None.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Four people are killed by slashing, with lots of blood. Blood is shown coming from people's eyes and noses. Heads are slashed off. The heroine falls into an open coffin and bangs her head during an earthquake (blood is shown on her brow). There are some gross-out scenes with flying green vomit, goo pours from a telephone, and some pretty nasty monster effects. There is a shocking moment when a boy tapes knives to his fingers and tries to kill his mother. A baby-sitter gets clawed in the back and is dragged to the ceiling until dead. A little boy is victimized by nightmares, after his father is killed.

LANGUAGE 5 - Three F-words and an assortment of insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Loss of a parent, God, monsters, murder, insanity.

MESSAGE - Demons exist, but can be controlled for a time. What you dream might actually occur. There is no such thing as a final sequel of a Hollywood movie.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
