A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge gets a lot of unwarranted shit from fans. Yes, it's riddled with homoerotic overtones, but who gives a damn? Bottom line - it marked the second and only other time in the series (other than the original) that Freddy was at his most evil, instead of wisecracking his way through the proceedings.
It's almost been a full year and the horrendous design of Platinum Dunes' Freddy Krueger has entirely faded from memory. Action figure maestros NECA seem to feel similarly for the amount of Englund-era Freddy they're readying for 2011. Each of their upcoming offerings are must-owns, but this is the one we've been waiting for.
