A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

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

46/100

You could show people this film as an example for all the pros and cons in the Nightmare On Elm Street series. The main pros here being the very impressive visuals and disgustingly great practical effects. Some dream sequences were pretty dumb (mainly the karate one), but the stuff in the beginning was very entertaining and the trippy camera work was actually well handled. One particular movie theater sequence gave me hardcore Messiah Of Evil vibes. The worst part of this film could be either the script or the acting. So many parts of the film shows how little the writers cared, and a few of the lead performances look they came out of a middle school play. The Dream Master is definitely a mess, but keeps you invested with its set design and very unique dream kills from Krueger. I can’t see 5 or 6 being any better than this.
