A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of, if not thee, biggest horror franchise ever, and despite the historic value of the films, Robert Englund has claimed he would like to see a remake of the first sequel movie in the series, A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge.
The actor stated he would like to see a fresh take on the movie with American kids that are less hip, chic, and junkie, adapt to situations throughout the movie as their sexuality, murder, and realization of their parents’ flaws become exploited.
A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge followed a teenage boy whose dreams are being haunted by the infamous child murderer.
Mark Patton played the unique Jesse Walsh character from the 1985 film, which serves as one of his eleven credited roles throughout his quite inexperienced career.
After portraying Freddy Krueger’s victim, Patton went on to feature in some small television roles where he played Chris Jenson in CBS Schoolbreak Special and Todd Radcliff in Hotel.
More recently, the American-born actor has been seen in both Family Possessions and Amityville: Evil Never Dies respectively.
In 2018, Patton received a Crimmy in the Horror Icon Award category.
Clu Gulager as Mr. Walsh, Hope Lange as Mrs. Walsh, Kim Myers as Lisa Webber, Robert Rusler as Ron Grady, Marshall Bell as Coach Shneider, Melinda O. Fee as Mrs. Webber, and Tom McFadden as Mr. Webber all joined the cast alongside Robert Englund and Mark Patton.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 has had just one nomination for an award since its release. That was in the Best Horror Film category for a Saturn Award.
