A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

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

Yep....franchise is back to being bad again.

Back to a bunch of campy nonsense and Freddy Krueger just killing people with little emotional weight. This was way better than Freddy’s Revenge but it was still pretty rough.

This movie also breaks or undoes a lot of things established in Dream Warriors. It takes off where Dream Warriors ended but it disregards a lot of that film’s ideas. Also, the central characters or Dream Warriors are more or less irrelevant here, so it makes you have to wonder why we even cared in the first place. You can switch off characters and casts, but that doesn’t mean you have to make the previous film pointless.
