A Nightmare on Elm Street: Suffer the Children Reviews
Another Black Flame novel that would have made a great movie.I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as I did the Friday the 13th Novel series from Black Flame, but this was still a good read.You have a group of teenagers who participate in a sleep study to test an anti-insomnia drug, but for reasons never fully explained it just ends up linking them all to Freddy. It also gives them powers, so you end up with a "Dream Warriors" situation. Overall it was as good as most of the movies, although Freddy was even more depraved than usual if that's possible. The ending was also a bit of a bummer, but when you look at the endings of most of the movies it fit right in.If you're a fan of the movies or the character, you should read this one for sure.
Out of all the Freddy novels, I found this one the most interesting. However, the author really made Freddy a a real pervert. So much so, it would put the Remake's rendition ofg Freddy to shame. Freddy kept wanting to bang the main character and I think he tongue kissed as many girls as he killed victims. That might annoy some.
Krueger is brought back to life in the pages of this first novel and he's gone from the hack job that was comedy Krueger back to this dark creature stalking teenagers in their dreams... Whatever you do... Don't fall asleep!!
What can I say. This is a brilliant piece of writing inspired by the movies. It brings the same suspense and terror through the pages. Really good. Will be definitely be looking for the others in this series when I find the time. I would read this again and recommend to anyone who likes the movies or the horror genre.
Pretty decent story - it goes back to Freddy's dark roots instead of the comedic persona he became in the later films.
