A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master Reviews

October 5, 2018
"A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master" is by far the best of the series, a superior horror picture that balances wit and gore with imagination and intelligence.

Consistently watchable and inventive.

Robert Englund, receiving star billing for the first time, is delightful in his frequent incarnations as Freddy, delivering his gag lines with relish and making the grisly proceedings funny.

As always, the teen actors are disposable, and even Robert Englund seems to be sleepwalking through Freddy.
