Even at the time, this felt like Craven trying to replicate his success with Freddy, purely for a clearer profit. I think he felt he had not been fully paid what he should have been and so decided to create another equally successful bad guy.
Directed by Wes Craven. With Michael Murphy, Mitch Pileggi, John Tesh, Heather Langenkamp. After being sent to the electric chair, a serial killer uses electricity to come back from the dead and carry out his vengeance on the football player who turned him in to the police.
