Years ago, angry locals took the law into their own hands and burned Fred Krueger alive after they discovered that he was abusing children. Now, Freddie (Robert Englund) has returned in the dreams of his killer's children, and the children begin to die. Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) is also having dreams about Freddie, and when her friends are meeting their demise, Nancy knows that she must stay awake and draw the dream killer out of the dreams and into the present-day world.
