The second movie in the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is Freddy’s Revenge. The movie was released in 1985 and was directed by Jack Sholder.

This film has a lower budget than the first one, which led to some cost-cutting measures. For example, instead of using prosthetic make-up to create Freddy’s disfigured face, the special effects team used rotoscoping, which is a process where they would film a actor with a burns make-up on and then trace over his movements frame-by-frame to create the illusion of Freddy on screen.
