Sequelcast 2: A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge
Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talk about A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, the first of many sequels about the teen dream murdering child killer Freddy Krueger. A new family has moved into the former Thompson household from the original. This time around, Freddy toys with shrill teen Jesse (Mark Patton). Often broad and rarely creepy, this quirky entry gets better with repeated viewings. Among other things, we see a pet bird burst into flames and the tamest leather bar this side of Cruising.
Mat caught up with The Invisible Man, a classic Univeral horror film that’s about a murdering invisible asshole. Thrasher enjoyed “The Creeping Terror”, a film featured on Season 6 of the original run of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
