Show and Tell # 2.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)

This sequel feels more dated than the 1984 original and is more disgusting than frightening. A strong sense of visuals works in the film’s favor – and that is all it has going for it. That being the case, the set pieces here have nothing on the eerie otherworldly dreamscapes of the original.

And how does Freddy come back this time? He is reincarnated by a dog named Jason that urinates fire. By this point the character has fully morphed into his bad one-liner spouting self – and he is still scarier than the Jackie Earle Haley Krueger. D+

    Some great images here. I kinda like this one, but only because it is so cheesy and Eighties-tastic. Plus Alice’s brother has totally radical dress sense!
