A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 4: The Dream Master is essentially just another dull, lifeless, and ever so annoyingly corny, formulaic horror sequel. A great handful of characters are walking clichés, and you don’t entirely latch onto any one of them (They’re all disposable victims basically; Bodies to barrel up). Just like most of the Nightmare flicks, the movie doesn’t start picking up speed until it’s finale, which is actually meticulously stimulating, in an evidently guilty-sort-of-fashion. There are some legitimately enjoyable, inventive moments in The Dream Master, but the flaws significantly outweigh these few gracious positives. (Verdict: D+)
Can we all just take a moment to realize that a dog’s piss resurrected Freddy Krueger back from the dead? Just…Just…Just let that sink in for a moment...
This movie has more funeral scenes than twists in an M. Night Shyamalan film. (It almost becomes borderline comedic!)
I actually liked the discount Zac Efron (Andras Jones). He could’ve been the next Karate Kid. ☹️
