Full of sweetly organic presence, Tamara Glynn not only enlivened Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Meyers, as the feisty yet vulnerable Samantha, in the late 80s, she also danced around another terror icon in the Love Stinks episode of Freddy’s Nightmares.
Endearing and genuine, Glynn’s Laura here only wants to be the recipient of athlete Adam’s (John Washington, a real life descendent of the first president) genuine devotion. Of course, when Adam slips up and tells another girl that he loves her, this episode becomes a creepily feminist look at relationships.
Since this is Krueger’s universe, Adam soon learns the hard way that a woman’s revenge can be quite deadly, in real and in dream life. In fact, in the episode’s most memorable moment, Adam imagines that a demented Laura, gleefully enacted by Glynn, has taken a sharp effort to sever their eternal bond. This instance, nicely, illustrates how Glynn, who also made appearances on Knots Landing, Miami Vice and Super Force, was able to play many shades on the spectrum of humanity and helps prove why she is still a fan favorite today.
