A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

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

Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master is a bit of a watered-down Freddy sequel. It splits the protagonist focus between a few characters causing a bit of a disjunct narrative frame to hang several dream sequences off of, but boy oh boy do we get some good dream sequences! The gooey, elastic effects done by 'Screaming Mad George' and his team are the real saving grace of this film. Drenched in the typical giallo inspired Elm Street reds and greens, it is genuinely a lot better looking than I remember it being. Freddy wears sunglasses at one point too, so that means it's a good movie.
