"A Nightmare on Elm Street" Movie Review
Unlike the original film, this "Nightmare" does actually help make sense out of the choice of victims and why Freddy's out for blood from the teenagers rather than their parents. However, this "Elm Street" doesn't provide any further explanation as to the rules regarding Freddy's interaction with his victims, and that would have been an avenue worth exploring.
