A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

"Weak"

A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master Review


Renny Harlin's big break came with this film, an otherwise forgettable entry into the Nightmare on Elm Street series. Freddy was killed and buried on consecrated ground in #3, but he's resurrected to terrorize teens once again -- notably Kristin (with Tuesday Knight taking over for episode 3's Patricia Arquette), who can pull her friends into her dreams at will. Not much to see here except for the occasional '80s big hairdo and some decent gore shots. The dream girl inside one kid's waterbed is near classic. (Sez Freddy: "How's this for a wet dream?")
