An adequate follow-up, although Freddy the freak's claw-flexing is nowhere near as gory. This time he possesses the body of young Jesse Walsh (Patton), a lad who moves into that house five years on from the earlier killings. The plotline has more holes than a tea bag, and is essentially no more than an excuse for a series of well executed special effects. Nevertheless, the film hangs reasonably well together, not least because of good performances from all concerned.
