Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Alice, having survived the previous installment of the Nightmare series, finds the deadly dreams of Freddy Krueger starting once again. This time, the taunting murderer is striking through the sleeping mind of Alice's unborn child. His intention is to be "born again" into the real world. The only one who can stop Freddy is his dead mother, but can Alice free her spirit in time to save her own son?Written by

Executive Producer Sara Risher's original pitch to New Line Cinema for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987), was for Freddy to have a baby. Risher states, "I went in, one of the executives was pregnant at the time, and I said, 'Picture Freddy clawing his way out of the womb.' No one liked my idea. So then I got a call for Nightmare 5, and when they came to me they said, 'Remember when you wanted Freddy to have a baby? Well, we like that idea now. What if Alice was the mom?'" See more »

[as The Phantom Prowler]
Time to die, you scar-faced limp-dick.
[fires a bunch of times until Freddy changes]
Faster than a bastard maniac! More powerful than a loco-madman! It's... Super Freddy!
[changes back to normal, turns Mark into paper and slashes him]
Told you comic books was bad for ya!

In the end credits, Lisa Wilcox's (Alice) name is omitted, possibly due an oversight with the end credits being listed alphabetically and the fact that her last name would have put her last on the list. See more »

Obviously, they wanted to have Freddy come back yet again. This time, he murders people through the dreams of an unborn baby. You read that right: AN UNBORN BABY! I never knew that unborn babies can dream, but apparently they can. As for the murders themselves...well, let's just say that the doll scene was something else! I would imagine that Robert Englund is probably proud to be remembered as that claw-handed slasher. Granted "A Nightmare On Elm Street: The Dream Child" isn't exactly the most creative movie ever, but it's still neat for what it is. Needless to say, there are some silly one-liners. And yet, there were even sequels after this one...
