  1. Bob's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    The point where the franchise started to recycle an ideas from previous installments to tell yet another story about serial dream kills. It remains ambitious with symbolism and expensive look, but as it develops, the more starts to be campy and trashy. Final result, acting and the characters are above average for your typical slasher, but it suffers from uneven tone - failing to be either funny or scary.

  2. Rocco's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    Against my better judgement, this is likely my favorite Elm Street film solely based on the likeability of the cast. Lisa Wilcox is a warmer, more plucky leading lady than Langenkamp ever was, and my boyhood crush on Andras Jones and his ridiculous hair hasn’t abated with age.

  3. William's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    I would probably rate this even lower if not for Freddy eating the kids off the pizza, the disturbing roach sequence and that crazy spinning shot from the ceiling when Alice is falling asleep. Getting rid of Kincaid was a big no-no.

  4. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    Robert Englund makes this film bearable and fun even if it goes against everything that the character stands for as Freddy become a true comedic anti-hero here. Good effects and inventive deaths help but the film goes too far by killing beloved established characters so that director Renny Harlin can make his own heroine. Worst is it that Patricia Arquette is replaced by Tuesday Knight who lack her charm entirely.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    A noter surtout les excellents trucages et autres effets spéciaux qui redonnent du piment à cette déjà longue série qui finira par s'étioler de plus en plus. www.cinefiches.com

  8. Renton47's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    I think 4 puts itself at an early disadvantage by attempting to recreate the world of 'Dream Warriors' which is one of the best entries in the series. Without Arquette and with Harlin's strange direction this has the feel of second-rate knockoff right down to the less successful motley crew of teens. The ideas it advances in the middle are interesting, but Freddy should get back to omnipotence. The roach was great.

  9. E's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    Without Craven's stamp on the proceedings, the series flounders, even though part 2 is quite interesting in its ideas. Freddy as a quipping charlatan erases everything that made him great in Parts 1 and 3, becoming a part of pop culture. No thanks, but I'll keep watching the series, if only for the amazing effects that visualize lucid dreams in an inventive manner.

  10. Marco Pierrard's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    Scénario chaotique mais des séquences de rêves très réussies (waterbed, cinéma...).

  11. JackButcher's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    Sort of builds on the last one but is starting to grow tiresome at this point, although the humour does build more in this one.

  12. Rattzz Matanzano's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    Barely good, but one of the better sequels.

  13. Ryan327's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

  14. Joshua's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    So damn commercialized, but I can't say I didn't have fun. Certainly better than 5 and 6, FvJ and the remake.

  15. nothere's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    Someone explain the dog pissing fire and resurrecting Freddy for me.

  16. João R's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    Watchable - mainly due its surreal tone. However, Freddy isn't creepy anymore. Now, it's time for his humour to try to entertain.

  17. Gutterbug's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    So underrated. It knows what's important, which are crazy insane fight/death scenes, and its not like those OTHER horror movies where you fight through the whole run length just to have like one or two scenes. It's pleasantly dense with stupid fun.

  18. Polyglot's rating of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    Features the first African American female nerd in a horror movie. Spoiler alert, she dies. Obviously.
