Kevin & Chris make one final trip to Elm Street (for now) with the head-scratching A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989). The 'mos talk Freddy's dad and drag jokes ("you'll see bitch"), a monstrous pregnancy, Rosemary's Baby and Hellraiser influences, particularly vicious kills sequences, elaborate gothic imagery, Springwood High School's high mortality rate, and more. Bonus topics include gialli and plenty of wrap-up thoughts about the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
