This is part two of two of “Sweet Dreams: Best of Nightmare on Elm Street”. The final five of the anthology featured Alice Cooper, Rosanne Barr, Iggy Pop, Kelly Leak from “The Bad News Bears” and kids being killed in video games. Only in the horror genre is this acceptable…or maybe professional wrestling.
