"Wes Craven's New Nightmare"

The second best film in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series is in my opinion "Wes Craven's New Nightmare" which happens to be the seventh film. The original film, also directed by Craven, is my favorite but "New Nightmare" is one very clever and scary film. Craven, who also wrote the script, blurs the line between reality and fiction. The hideously scarred villain Freddy Kruger crosses over from the popular horror movies into the lives of the actual actors who played the characters in the movies. The movie is a great deal of fun. Craven keeps the scares and suspense coming. There is violence and gore but nothing too sickening for viewers with weak stomachs. What are your thoughts on "Wes Craven's New Nightmare?"
