Pure evil never really dies!
From the Back Cover
Proving there's no rest for the wicked, the unspeakably evil Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) is again resurrected from the grave to wreak havoc upon those who dare to dream. But this time, he faces a powerful new adversary!
As her friends succumb one by one to Freddy's wrath, telepathically gifted Kristen embarks on a desperate mission to destroy the satanic dream stalker and release the tortured souls of his victims once and for all.
Directed by Renny Harlin (The Long Kiss Goodnight, Die Hard 2) and loaded with killer effects and drop-dead humor, this is a "superior horror picture that balances wit and gore with imagination and intelligence" (L.A. Times).

dream master has some great visual effects, and, honestly, it seems that the movie is filled with them, wall to wall. the make-ups are excellent, and mention must be made of kevin yaghers excellent work, as well as steve johnson, and screaming mad george. there are some great gags, not the least of which is brooke thiess' (heather langenkamp's sister on just the ten of us) kafka-esque metamorphosis. freddy is as far from dark here as possible, delivering one liner after one liner, and only occasionally mustering a bit of menace. but robert is having fun, and he is in total command of the character. the dialogue throughout this film is utterly terrible, and is often distracting. but the music is good, the kills nifty, and a sense of good fun permeates everything in this terrible, entertaining flick.
oh, freddy, you burnt-faced scamp!
I remember watching this as a kid. I eagerly awaited Halloween as that seemed to be the only time they would show 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' movies on TV, and I looked forward the most to Part 4 (an aside, streaming services ruin the anticipation and waiting to watch things, but they serve their purposes). I wanted to get my trick-or-treating done as fast as I could so I could get home and watch this in time. I would always end up watching the second half, but eventually saw the entire thing and it made a lasting impression.
I do suggest you watch all the 'Nightmare' movies in order, as it does have some continuity of characters, at least in parts 3, 4, and 5. It's not a biggie, but it will help you understand the first nightmare in this movie. At the very least, watch Part 3.
Nightmare on Elm Street 4 is a colorful, fun, and scary movie. The nightmares range from weird, to gross, to shocking, as the stuff of nightmares tend to be. Watching as an adult I would say Part 4 is where the series peaked. This movie had the best of everything: the best soundtrack (save for the original's score), the best cinematography, and some of the best nightmares of the series. One nightmare involving working out and bugs may forever remain in your memories as it did mine.
It's always recommended that you watch these movies late at night, with very little lights on, to help set the mood; you'll have some good old scary fun. Recommended.
