A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master was one of the better films in the franchise. Great scares, good acting, cool gore effects, and Freddy Krueger still remains as a masterpiece. However, a few parts like Freddy putting on sunglasses, Alice and Dan repeating the same thing they do in one nightmare 4 TIMES, and the windows smashing in the real world. Overall, it's a solid sequel.

"I will see you in hell" / "Tell them Freddy sent you". Freddy returns again, this time to finish what he started with the remaining Dream Warriors. This movie is okay but could have been better.

The dream sequences get more fantastic just as the story gets less interesting. The decline in quality of the series started here. Though, it does have it's moments and Alice is a good protagonist.

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 0/2 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Plot: 0.5/1 + Music: 0.5/1 + Good vs. Evil: 1/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 = 5.5/10 or 55%. They were onto something with 3 so why change a horse mid-sequel? The dream warriors are back, although with a new director, and thus we get the fourth different vision for Freddy. Here he recruits one of the warriors to help him kill and aside from that fun tidbit everything else is completely bland.

Review - The Dream Master (1988)

After Kristen Parker (Tuesday Knight) and her friends are killed by the newly resurrected Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), Alice Johnson (Lisa Wilcox) unwillingly begins aiding Krueger in more killings. Now she must find the power to stand up to the evil spirit and put him to rest in “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master.”

I don't get this series. The quality from one to the next, as well as the mood, is so vastly different that the only things keeping them together are the characters and the basic premise. After the terrible “Dream Warriors,” I was really expecting “The Dream Master” to be a nightmare (no pun intended), but it turned out to be a pretty enjoyable flick. I hate that it took them four movies to find what worked best, but I'm glad that they found it.

The story...

Not a Good Follow-up

Renny Harlin is probably one of my favorite directors of movies that completely bomb or don't have that much of a following....but they are decent within their own right.

I guess this movie is no exception....although I do immediately have a little beef with the movie right from the start.

Recasting the main character from Part 3 with a different girl. They got the two other survivors for show up in this movie. Maybe Patricia Arquette was too big a name back in 1988??? But you just can't do that. Movies make the habit of changing actors for movies too often. If you can't get the person who played the role before...write a new damned script.

I don't remember a lot about this movie other than I thought it was rather ridiculous in terms of just a bland story and kills. Nothing...
