A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: Dream Master
In this decade of sequels, of course there are the bad ones. This is the worst in the series up to this point and falls flat because of how incomprehensible and repetitive it is. Despite having some fun moments, the film is just a pain in the franchise up to this point. It does not bring anything new and it is annoyingly confusing in narrative. The acting was fine, though nothing even special and all the confusion in the plot will simply bore you. The film can be seen as a bit of horror fun, but it isn’t even that for big film fans. It is worth skipping, but if you want to see everything that happens in the series, I think you could bear to watch it.
At this point, films are utterly predictable, repetitive and simply not good horror films. The fifth in the franchise is bad as the previous and once more proves as a redundant and predictable story. It is not the acting, because it is reasonable (even if Robert Englund’s Kruger is more comic now), but simply in the plot of it all.
At this stage, there should not even be any more films. Most of the Elm Street kids are gone and history repeats itself in such a boring and redundant manner. Englund was usual Kruger but is not as terrifying as he used to be. He is to comical and just can’t be taken very seriously now. Elm Street 5 is a terrible excuse for scares and does nothing good for the series.
