A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master ★★½

THE DREAM MASTER (1988), the fourth chapter of the A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET saga, is full-fleshed fantasy horror and it's also here Freddy evolves into a tentpole character as his sassy oneliners are spiffed up and his presence feels more entertaining and fun rather than intimidating. Too bad it also gets a bit lame, and rules for how Freddy's powers works, and are limited, seem to no longer exist.
