Tim’s Slasher Tweet Reviews: “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master” (1988)

Tim Schilling is back as we continue our “Nightmare” week here at Slasher Studios. This time he’s got a tweet by tweet review for the most successful of the Elm Street sequels (not including “Freddy vs. Jason”), “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master.” Stylish and a bit over-the-top, this has been my guilty pleasure of Elm Street series for years. Nevertheless, many fans of the series said this is where Nightmare jumped the shark. Let’s see which side of the fence Tim falls on.

Thoughts before the film:
I’m at the point of the series(4-6)where I can’t remember which movie is which,too many sequels will do this to ya.

Thoughts while watching:
0:05 They couldn’t get Patricia Arquette back for this? Lame.
0:16 Kinds glad my dog doesn’t piss fire.
0:20 The Dream Warriors need to get more people to them or they all gonna die!
0:22 Not sure if that waterbed is awesome, or really creepy that a person can swim in it..
0:23 Okay it’s not awesome since Freddy can live in it.
0:27 Freddy is a bad looking woman.
0:32 Hey the prostitute’s back!
0:36 For a second I thought she started dreaming that she was in Jaws. What a weird crossover that would be.
0:40 A-okay that Kristen is dead. I liked her better in 3.
0:43 Kristen is inside of you, Alice. You were there for it, duh.
0:54 These dreams are starting to become ridiculous.
0:55 Don’t be friends with Alice. You’ll just die.
1:09 Freddy is such a bad spotter. Don’t let him go to the gym with you.
1:16 Alice is THE Dream Master! Too bad she got all the Dream Warriors killed. They coulda kicked ass.
1:24 …this isn’t weird or anything.

Final Verdict:
Not to sure how I feel about #ANightmareOnElmStreet4. I thought it was a ton of fun to watch, but the plot was all over the place. I did like how it still had the same feel as the first three movies in the series, but I think it started to jump the shark with this one.
