Donkey Kong Kill Screen’s review published on Letterboxd:
Those kids should have just offered Fred Krueger a Netflix special. He might have stopped hassling them.
ELM STREET 4 is silly fun and about as far from scary as you can get. But let's focus on the positives here. It looks great and Steve Johnson and Screaming Mad George deliver some amazing makeup and visual effects. It's actually a shame you don't get to see much of it until the final 20 minutes.
Those two would later be involved together in the fantastic practical effects of RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD III. Seeing either of those names in the credits make these horror sequels worth watching.
