A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

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

The most 80s movie of the series so far. Also the first direct sequel of the series so far. It gives in to some of the worst impulses of both of those categories with a lot of excess and bad needle drops and dated cultural references, but I still love so much of what’s on offer here. Some of the best dream sequences of the series so far happen in this film. I absolutely love the incredibly cheesy waterbed kill. And the soul pizza. And getting sucked into a movie screen. I don’t know. The cheese and bad humor sort of work for me? I had fun with it.
