The original ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ is still to me one of the scariest and best horror films there is, as well as a truly great film in its own right and introduced us to one of the genre’s most iconic villains in Freddy Krueger. It is always difficult to do a sequel that lives up to a film as good as ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ let alone one to be on the same level.While the best of the sequels from personal opinion is the third, the fourth one is another one of the series’ better sequels. Like the third film it is not on the same level as the original, a very difficult feat, but it does have enough of what is a large appeal of the original and why it works so well. Not perfect, but a lot of very good things. ‘The Dream Master’ is not without its flaws. With a couple of exceptions, the acting is largely wooden (while not the worst offender as such, Tuesday Knight is no Patricia Arquette) and the beginning rock song is really cheesy and feels out of place. The story at times gets a little silly.However, Lisa Wilcox is a winning lead and Robert Englund continues to terrify as the iconic character that epitomises “what nightmares are made of”. ‘The Dream Master’ is to me the second best directed sequel, courtesy of Renny Harlin, giving a potentially clich├ęd premise freshness and imagination.Special effects are neatly executed. The humour is darkly comic and very funny and there are some wickedly cracking one-liners. The scares are aplenty and they are legitimately creepy with some cool deaths (the water bed one is a strong example) and amazing dream sequences thrown into the mix. Alice being flung into the on-screen action from the cinema balcony is one of the series’ most marvellous highlights. It’s a beautifully photographed film, particularly the dream sequences, and is the most unique-looking ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ sequel with its European art-horror visual style. The production design is both dream-like and nightmare while the music is suitably haunting.Overall, good sequel and one of the series’ better ones. 7/10 Bethany Cox
