Nightmare on Elm Street 5:  The Dream Child is little more than someone who is not Wes Craven attempting to reinvent the wheel (or, er, the franchise) and failing miserably.

We pick up with Alice and Dan again, and they seem to be normal and well-adjusted and graduating high school with a new group of friends we’ve never met before.   Dan and Alice seem reasonably happy, too; they have an extended vacation planned to Europe for the summer and all seems well.
