Wes Craven's self-referential sequel, technically a spin-off of A Nightmare on Elm Street but part of the collection, tells the hypothetical story of the artists, cast and crew, responsible for the success of the franchise discovering they are being haunted by the creature they gave life to, as if subject to a pop culture egregore.
The great script, cinematography and performances, including a plausible child actor that isn't annoying, make New Nightmare stand out in the series. It is down to earth and watered down in terms of scares, surrealism and gore, and no longer fun, let alone funny. The original film worked on an emotional level more than its sequels did because it took this path. Like this one, it was much sinister.
A lot of familiar names, actors from previous films, namely, play themselves. Some are mere cameos; others have a significance in the plot. Clues, winks and homages are there to be found by the true fan. In this, Heather Langenkamp, the "Nancy" character, has a child of her own and lives with the fear she helped spread on screen: the fear that sleep is coming to get you and the ones you love.
