A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master Movie Poster

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 Alice 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, Cliff Hanger) and loaded with killer effects and drop-dead humor, this is a “superior horror picture that balances wit and gore with imagination and intelligence.” (Los Angeles Times)
