A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master ★★½

COMBO REVIEW

TWO FUCKING MONTHS QUARANTINED! HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP! I'm serious, I don't even go near my door. And I'm celebrating it by continuing my Friday/Nightmare marathon.

Friday the 13th: Part VII - The New Blood
Cool. Cool Cool Cool.
There's no new blood, what the fuck is up with this title, but it was quite fun. At this point, Friday embraced some sense of humor, and I really enjoyed the protagonist, Tina, probably my favorite in the series. The addition of telekinesis to the mythos was honestly pretty good, it's the one of the few films that deepened the mythology of the series.
It still has the basic repetition of old tropes, and some questionable moments, but when that bitch Melissa died I cheered, so it was a satisfying but generic slasher film. One of the most memorable in the franchise though.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master
BABY BOOMER SANTA, THANK YOU FOR MTV!
If you ask me which series I prefer, I say Nightmare on Elm Street. It's overall far more creative, especially when it comes to visuals, and it's also visceral, which is curious, as this deals with dreams and Friday with reality.
This one is easily the worst I've seen so far, I mean, THE DREAM WARRIORS DIE! AND THAT'S ON ACT 1! It's not even a spoiler, and then all the characters I started liking died, and I had to stay with all the ones I disliked hahahah But look, even by Rise of Skywalker-ing everything, it's still fun and creative, this one is BONKERS! Freddy's defeat in this film is awesome, for real, worth at least 2 stars. My main complaint might be this feel too much like 80s MTV, which is why it is nicknamed as the "MTV Nightmare", I love Freddy and his sick sense of humor, but the way he's portrayed in this film really kills the atmosphere, dread and mystery he embodies.

FUN SLASHER NIGHT! 👍🏻
