In this sequel to the box-office smash "A
Nightmare on Elm Street," Freddy Krueger's back and still out
for revenge. The story unfolds five years later, as Jesse Walsh, a
new teen in town, moves into the house that previously belonged to
Nancy, the heroine of the first movie.
Jesse remains blissfully unaware of the supernatural presence
haunting the house -- until Freddy starts invading his dreams. The
undead creature wants to take over Jesse's body and renew his
murderous vendetta against the local kids.
In a last, anguished attempt to save his own and his friends'
lives, Jesse gathers his pals together to fight Freddy off and
destroy him, once and for all.
