A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989) Synopsis:

Thinking she is now safe from Krueger’s attack, Alice goes on living until she realizes that Freddy’s is trying to strike back by haunting the dream of her unborn child.

Review:

The fourth episode was already not so good, but this one definitely confirms that the writers are running out of an idea to bring back the famous dream killer to life. In this one, they invent Krueger a child, which may sound like a good idea at first, but finally ends up being just another bad Krueger movie. As usual, the fan will enjoy this movie just to discover the new kills that the writers have comes up with, but that’s pretty much all there is in this one. At this point, I was really irritated by Freddy’s play-on-word.
