The best slasher sequel since the original film in A Nightmare on Elm Street film franchise! (by ivo-cobra8)
A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master 1988 It is one of my personal favorite horror movies with the original A Nightmare on Elm Street film, it is solid, decent, excellent horror slasher sequel in A Nightmare on Elm Street series franchise. I love this movie to death and my favorite heroine is Alice Johnson. This flick is Better than part 2,5,6 and the horrible awful remake that I hate to death! We have a new heroine named Alice, which is awesome. Lisa Wilcox is a bad ass in this flick, wondering what happened to that actress. Lisa Wilcox did an excellent job as shy heroine Alice. <more>
Tuesday Knight blow my heart away she was the heart and the soul of this movie. She wrote performed the theme song Nightmare for this film. This film is actually my Renny Harlin's favorite movie alongside Cliffhanger, Die Hard 2 and Deep Blue Sea. Renny Harlin did a great job with direction and visuals of the film, I think it's actually some of the best directing work he did, and Lisa Wilcox's character Alice is probably to Freddy what Tommy Jarvis is to Jason, an enemy that he will always fight but he will always lose. This film has a lot of good soundtracks that I love. It has an excellent cast that I love. Wes Craven's a Nightmare on Elm Street will be my number 1 while this one will be my number 5. Plot: Freddy Krueger returns once again to terrorize the dreams of the remaining Dream Warriors, as well as those of a young woman who may know the way to defeat him for good.Before I start what I like about this movie, I love Wes Craven's original film A Nightmare on Elm Street 1984 which is my favorite best horror slasher film. My third favorite film of the series is Wes Craven's last movie New Nightmare 1994 which is my third favorite film in A Nightmare on Elm Street film franchise and I think is the third best film. Things I Love in this movie: I like the music scores by John Easdale and Craig Safan, they are a lot of music tracks that are put in the film from the 80's. I love Tuesday Knight's song Nightmare she played it during opening credits. I love Tuesday Knight and Lisa Wilcox's acting performance both of the leads did an outstanding job as acting her characters. Lisa Wilcox was a bad ass in this film, her character as Alice Johnson was well written, she was decent and the only heroine that she never died in the film series. Tuesday Knight as Kristen Parker was decent and she was awesome, she was better than Patricia Arquette I love movies from the 80's action and horror films that I love, so this is pretty solid good movie, far way better than 5 and remake which I think they are the worst one I have ever saw. I like that this movie is fantasy and it has a good kills and Freddy is trying still to be scary. Kristen Parker Tuesday Knight was actually a Dream Warrior she had a power to call her friends in her dreams, Alice Johnson Lisa Wilcox was a Dream Master and she gave her power to Freddy, of course Kristen was the last Elms Street child, but Freddy need it new ones to get the souls from the children to become more powerful than ever. I like the boiler room scene Kristen eventually finds herself in Freddy's boiler room. It is explained that Kristen is the last child from Elm Street, and Freddy needs her help to get more children. I like that is that explanation. I like the last fight between Alice and Freddy, Alice change her self in to an bad ass heroine she fight's Freddy defeats him with a mirror of his own image and she releases all souls of the children that Freddy took them away. I love that Alice saves Dan Jordan Danny Hassle from death. Brooke Theiss as Debbie Stevens was beautiful, gorgeous and hot I love her in this film. Roland Kincaid Ken Sagoes and Joey Peterson Rodney Eastman both returned from previous installment The Dreams Warriors and they were both killed off in the beginning of the film which is stupid. I really don't like this, the characters who survived in previous installment been killed off. It feel's to me like Nancy's effort keeping them save was for nothing. That's the only problem I have with this film. A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master is a 1988 American slasher horror film and the fourth film in the Nightmare on Elm Street series. The film was directed by Renny Harlin, stars Robert Englund, Lisa Wilcox and Danny Hassle.Overral: I enjoy this film every time I see it and I have fun with it, goes very fast around it is fast paced and entertaining. 10/10 Bad Ass Seal Of Approval
NOES 4 commentary on the person who found it a bad movie. (by jessysiemons)
I just think that this part of the NOES series, is just one of the best ever made. I mean , if he stayed only on Elmstreet for the 6 movies, it would get boring. I am just happy that his territory got bigger. And about the resurrection, so what? Haven't you seen the beginning of the movie? Kristen dreamed a lot of that house. And that's why Freddy got resurrected because Kristen BELIEVED that he wasn't dead. It gave him power. NOES 4 is a great movie, the special effects are fantastic and the storyline is OK. It's a classic of the horror movies! I hope that they will make more <more>
sequels. I mean , " A Nightmare on Elmstreet " was the beginning of a new epoch for the horror movies. So next time when you give comment on a movie, see it with your full eyes and a lot of attention before you make a comment.
You shouldn't have buried him. He's not dead. (by thesar-2)
I make no apologies on awarding A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 5/5 stars. And I certainly don't consider it a "guilty pleasure." Let's say I grew up on this movie. It was one of my initial "Movie Event of the Year" films as I watched it 5 times in the theatre in 1988, all at the now defunct AMC Gateway. Twice alone, twice with my sister and the final time with my father who wanted to know what "evil" I was watching so many times. Also, since I was so young 14, and I am puzzled on how I frequently got into a rated R flick – even my sister was younger <more>
than 17 not only was this my first introduction to Freddy – I hadn't seen 1-3 yet, this movie made a huge impact on my future movie-going experiences as well as my life.It's strange to even think about rewarding a #4 in a 1980s horror franchise more than, say 2½ stars, but I absolutely loved this movie. The soundtrack which I had bought and have listened to hundreds of times, we'll get more on that later , the score, the comedic tones, the frights, the fights, the inventiveness and the acting. They really up'd the ante this time with an obvious budget and special effects. But more so, Freddy finally came out of the closet, so to speak.Not only was he absolutely hilarious, we finally got to see more of him and his glove. I obviously didn't know at the time how privileged the audience was to finally see him out of the shadows and into the limelight where he and his clever one-liners belong. I guess some might have problem with that – they probably felt he was more "scary" hidden away. I didn't. I felt he was too strong of a character not to show.Well, Freddy's back, but mostly because Kristen the newly replaced Tuesday Knight, due to Arquette being pregnant, and Knight also did the wonderful opening song couldn't leave well enough alone and kept thinking of him in her dreams. She also has a bad knack for involving others in her dreams, including #3's survivors Joey & Kincaid.When Freddy eventually stalks them and murders them including one of the series most memorable/creative death – "How's this for a wet dream?" the series actually keeps continuity by stating Freddy's mission was to murder all of the original "Elm Street Children" and these were the final three. Kristen does manage to transfer her power of pulling someone into the dream to another innocent she pulled into the dream, Alice Wilcox. Positive: this gives someone else the opportunity to defeat Freddy. Negative: most likely Freddy would've been done with his task complete.Alice, sweet Alice, doesn't know what to think of all this, barely being informed of the back story earlier. In fact, had she been a little more prepared, she might not of inadvertently brought her friends into her own dreams for Freddy to collect souls. As Alice attempts to put the pieces together there's another side effect – just like with Kristen, she collects their powers, or personalities, habits smoking, bad! and strengths. Freddy's not stupid and plans to stop her before she stops him. Does he succeed? Does she happen to remember an old nursery rhyme at the most opportune time to defeat the man of their nightmares? Duh.I loved this movie on so many levels. I have the entire movie memorized, shot-by-shot, frame-by-frame and all the dialogue in between. So much so, I have to consciously stop myself from quoting it so I can enjoy the 30th time viewing it. I loved the soundtrack, but some songs were vacant. For those, I had to search – way pre-internet – by asking around school while just humming some of the lyrics. The ones missing went onto become some of my favorite songs: Anything, Anything by Dramarama and I Want Your Hands On Me by Sinead O'Connor. Do you know how hard life is without the internet to look things up!?!? I always love a good female combatant, but the nerdy-girl Alice the very BEST Nightmare heroine, sorry, Nancy fans turned warrior wasn't just awesome, but beautiful and a great challenge for the exciting climax/showdown in the church in the closing. In addition, since I was about the same age, give or take a couple of years, of most of the teens in this movie, I can safely say: they got how teens act and what they say down to a tee, much like any of the John Hughes movies.The death/nightmare scenes weren't just clever and topical for the time but they kept the story going, whether you were laughing or reminiscing in the moments. Freddy proved himself as the number one villain of all 1980s horror franchises. It's no wonder this was the top grossing of all the Nightmare films if you don't count Freddy Vs. Jason. I loved seeing Freddy at his best and especially his glove – many a scene they acted like his claws/knifes sprung like Wolverine's. I loved seeing him in different costumes and with as many one-liners as most comedies.On a personal note, as a critic in my own mind-dammit I generally will always try to be unbiased. Such as, a movie of this stature would be 4 to 4½ stars with all the non-personal remembrance positives I mentioned. But, for once, I am taking this to a personal level and how much this movie meant to me. To hell with the majority of critics, the audience and my own personal impartial views – even when the movie is dear to me. I am selfishly rewarding this the highest rating due to how much it means to me.See it anyways. It's fun horror. Something they rarely get right in today's time.
This movie is pure 80's awesomeness, I was only born in '87 but I still absolutely love it. The fashion, the style, the hair, the music Who doesn't do karate while bumping Dramarama awesome song , the...comedian. Yes, Freddy the comedian, we've seen a transformation as the series progresses. Freddy still has that creepiness to him, and always will for the most part if you look at the original , but it's fairly clear to see that the comedy has taken over. The thing is, even though Freddy has got jokes now instead of quick lil' quips, it somehow seems to fit and just <more>
work with the whole vibe of the film.The cast is excellent, I would have loved to be on set and a part of it for this one. Maybe it's just me but they really seem like a cool bunch of kids, and I'm pretty sure I wanted to be a ninja like Rick Johnson Andras Jones when I was younger, hell, still do. We see the characters from Dream Warriors: Kristen, Kincaid and Joey all return. Unfortunately Patricia Arquette does not reprise her role as Kristen, but singer Tuesday Knight steps in and does a decent job and an amazing job on the intro song "runniiiiing from this niiightmare" . The new characters added are a fun bunch, got their clichés but memorable none the less. We got the sister of Rick, quiet and shy daydreamer Alice played by the beautiful Lisa Wilcox. Possibly my favorite character of the series, besides Freddy of course . Then we have Debbie the popular boy crazy fitness expert Brooke Theiss ,and Shiela the asthmatic bookworm Toy Newkirk and Dan Jordan the likable jock and friend of Rick, played by Danny Hassle .Freddy is on a mission in this one, as he is brought back by flaming dog pee, with no real explanation, but a quick botched one liner "you shouldn't have buried me". Hey, it works for me, Freddy's back! Our former Dream Warriors don't seem to do so well this time around, and since it seems like there are basically two casts, it does make sense taking them out first.We quickly see Kincaid have to fight Freddy in a junkyard, I'm guessing same one as in part 3, but this time around in a nightmare. Kincaid is his usual self, talking some smack before being disposed of. Immediately after, it's Joey's turn to go. While falling asleep Johnny Depp esquire with headphones on and TV as well, the water bed starts to shake and a poster model appears from within it but of course it's really Freddy having some fun before pulling him under. Kristen is drugged shortly after by her mother "Andelay!" because she refuses to sleep, it's pretty clear she's a goner. I don't know what was up with the beach scene in Kristen's nightmare, it just didn't seem to fit, Freddy rocking shades while pretending to be Jaws, just didn't work for me. Before being burned alive, she pulls in Alice remember that dream power she has , to start things rolling for Freddy on the new batch of victims. Luckily Kristen passes on this trait of hers to Alice.It almost seemed too easy, Freddy couldn't kill any of them in part 3, now he's on a hot streak. And now it's up to the new kids on the block to kill him. Quite a mighty task lays before them, and obviously we know which one will step up to the plate. Freddy's transformation of character isn't the only one we see here, Alice also changes, which does work fairly well. As the movie goes on, she gains the power of each one of her friends and Freddy's victims, leading up to a kick-ass battle in the end.There are some only okay kills like the suck-face death of Sheila and the ninja glove death of Rick, they could have both been stepped up a bit, but they still work. Debbie's death, however, is pretty awesome as she's turned in to a cockroach and gets an oozy squash. What really makes it great, is that we see a bit of foreshadowing when a cockroach runs out of her bag of food when she is first introduced while stating "Ew, so disgusting" before squashing it.By the end, we got two teens remaining, Alice and Dan who just so happen to be locking eyes throughout the film. It's a race against time as Alice must take out Freddy before he does the same to Dan. I love the scene with Alice getting ready to brawl while clearing her mirror of pictures until she's just looking at herself "Fuckin' A". They pick the most perfect place for their showdown, as we see Alice layeth the smacketh downeth in a Chuch, similar to the one in part 5, if not the same one. The final blow works well, as Alice makes Freddy see a reflection of himself which results in all the souls that Freddy has captured come alive and rip him apart from the inside out.We get the perfect ending...Alice ending up with Dan and becoming the Dream Master while Freddy is laid to rest...for now. Definitely a fun sequel, that doesn't live up to the original but continues the story with new ideas presented in a hip way. It's really hard not to like this one, it loses a lil' steam but keeps the series rolling strong.9/10
Another superb Elm Street installment! (by TalesfromTheCryptfan)
A year after "The Dream Warriors", Kristen Tuesday Knight with two surviving dream warriors Joey Rodney Eastman and Roland Kincaid Ken Sagoes have been dreaming nothing but good dreams without the involvement of Freddy. However one night, Kincaid is dreaming that he's in the junkyard where Freddy was buried in the last film as his dog somehow resurrects Freddy Krueger Robert Englund back. Kristen with friends Alice Lisa Cox , Debbie Brook Theiss , Danny Danny Hassle and Rick Andreas Jones have been getting bad dreams as well as soon some of them drop like flies <more>
with Alice being a pawn in Freddy's game as when some of her friends die she gains some of their powers as she is the only one to take on Freddy with them.A smart and nifty entry of the popular "Nightmare on Elm Street" horror fantasy franchise is a solid one. After the brilliant "Dream Warriors", this became the highest grossing sequel in the franchise thanks to Renny Harlin's direction whom was fresh off making "Prison" 1988 at the same year. Centerfold Hope-Marie Carlton and b-movie beauty Linnea Quigley does some amusing cameos here in this movie, the special effects in this entry are incredible even by today's standards. There is some good acting and creative gory death scenes like the disturbing girl turning into a bug sequence or the Pizza of souls scene, Lisa Wilcox and Tuesday Knight are really smokin' hot girls in this movie.
I'm not a huge fan of "funny Freddy", but the concept behind this film is great and it might have the most likable cast of any of the Nightmare on Elm Street films. Each one brings a lot of charm to their roles even when they don't have much to work with on the page and each one feels unique so that you never have to stop and go "who is that again?"The journey that Alice goes on throughout the film might be one of the most moving character arcs I've ever seen in a horror film where she grows stronger and more confident with every loss she endures. It's as <more>
if all her friends are lifting her up and pushing her from beyond the grave to be the best she can be. Lisa Wilcox is excellent in the role where she's allowed to go from shy, mousy wallflower to strong, empowered woman by the end.If you're just in it for the special effects and death scenes, you're also in luck, because this is one of the most imaginative sequels in the series.
Deserves more than an average of 4,8/10 (by juliensd)
This is the first elm street film I saw and it fascinated me back then. Of course I was only 10 at that time but it still is great. The flick is not scary like the original, but is more grotesque. Robert Englund is excellent as Freddy Krueger because he enjoys playing that character. You always sense Krueger presence with his twisted nightmares. Dark humor is my taste and I always laugh when he pops his quotes: "You shouldnt have buried me; I'm not dead!" "Now how's that for a wet dream?" "Welcome to Wonderland, Alice!" There are a few things that blows; <more>
Patricia Arquette should have been recast as Kirsten Parker and the resurrection is a bit lame but then the S/F effects rocks, the director likes action scenes and the music is well above average for a 1998 film.Definetly recommended
Alright horror movie but definitely not as good as the first! (by gangstahippie)
Rated R for Violence,Language and Brief Nudity.I saw the first nightmare on elm street film yesterday and was completely blown away! The first film was awesome! The greatest horror film of the 1980's and one of the greatest horror films of all time in my opinion!.I saw Nightmare On Elm Street 2 a while ago so I cant really remember much about it.I have not seen Nightmare On Elm Street 3 but I really want to now.So I skipped right ahead to four.Unlike the first film which was pure horror with maybe 1 small humorous scene, this film is basically a horror/comedy with Freddy being the <more>
wise-cracking humorous villain that we all know.I heard the comedy started with the third film.I also heard that the film New Nightmare goes back to being a horror film.Anyway in this film, a girl has the power to bring people into her dreams.Apparently they killed Freddy in the third film but now he comes back and kills them all one by one.So its basically up to the teenagers who have not been killed yet to try and stop him.The plots of the films are basically the same but the films are still entertaining and fun to watch! NIghtmare On Elm Street 4 is a fairly decent comedy/horror film.
Don't trust me on this because everyone I know loves nightmare 3, but i hate it. Its just something about it. But other than the original, Nightmare on elm street 4 was the greatest elm street ever. Yes, the remake stands up to the original but thats not what I'm reviewing. I highly recommend this one. It leaves off a little bit off of elm street 3. Same 3 characters that live in the 3rd one. But there not the main ones. Freddy knows that the 3 kids from part 3 are the last ones off of elm street. So he takes Alice in 4 and it goes around her in 4 and 5. But the 6 hovers around her <more>
child who was also in 5. But after 6, Elm street goes down the toilet with Wes craven's NEW NIGHTMARE. And then Freddy vs Jason which ruined Jason but I thought made Freddy even cooler. And then the remake came to go right on my horror movie shelf next Elm Street 1-4 combo pack.
