Brief Synopsis:
My main goal here was, like the first film, tighten the editing, remove filler & fix the awful ending.
The original cut sets up a "Face Your Fears & Believe In Yourself" theme, only to ditch it at the end for a bad deus ex machina.
This edit aims to fix that.
This project aims to bring stronger continuity, tighter editing & improved pacing to 6 of the films in the Nightmare on Elm Street movie series.

Editing Details:
I tried to stay true to Michael N. Knue, Jack Tucker & Chuck Weiss' editing style from the original film. I didn't want anything to seem changed or altered at all.
This mostly meant sharp, quick cutting & trying to keep the energy high.
