Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

It’s been some time since I’ve posted anything and a few days after Halloween. Over the past month, I have been watching horror movies like any normal horror fan. Did that make sense? Flicks from Friday the 13th, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, you get the point. This particular review is about my guy Freddy; his fourth installment. The Dream Master is probably my favorite out of the series for a number of reasons. Reasons such as the soundtrack, the characters, and the ending. Tuesday Knight not only plays a lead role as Kristen Parker but sings the opening song “Running From This Nightmare”, pretty cool. Sinead O’Connor is also featured on the soundtrack with “I Want Your Hands On Me.”

Alice is one of those untouchable characters that Krueger doesn’t mess with too much until the ending. Freddy uses Alice to lure the others in like Dan, Kristen, Rick, Sheila and Debbie. Rick and Freddy have a funny battle scene where Freddy is invisible; He has a funny line saying “A true warrior needs no eyes.” The ending scene I thought was unique and makes the viewer wanting more. Dan and Alice are by a beautiful water fountain and they make a wish. Dan flicks the coin into the fountain and an image of Freddy appears. Dan asks, what did you wish for? Alice says, if I tell you, it won’t come true. Credits roll. It leaves me wondering if she wished for Freddy to stay dead or alive?
