Yeah, Greg Cox
and I had this conversation with Davros
some time back. He seems to remember Freddy spouting one-liners the whole movie, but that's not the case. As you say, he didn't do that until the sequels. In that sense, Freddy makes more wisecracks in this one than the original. Pity they're all retreaded lines from the sequels, though. "How's this for a wet dream," etc.
, it'd be worthwhile to rent the original to reacquaint yourself with it. They just released it on Blu Ray a few months ago.
The Never Sleep Again
documentary is out, too. I haven't seen it yet, but I've heard good things.
