A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master ★★★★

Movie 11 of my Shocktober 2017 list

For some people the color change of leaves, pumpkin spiced everything and the crisp cool air are signifiers of fall. For me it is not truly fall until I watch at least one Nightmare on Elm Street and one Friday the 13th movie. Dream Master was my pick to reintroduce myself to the series and I loved it. It might not be as good as the first one but it certainly isn't as cheesy as I remembered it being either. Some of the kills looked better on VHS than they do on the remastered blu-ray. In my opinion, these movies benefited from grainy VHS. With that said, I can't deny how great it looked when Freddy reformed from the bones and ashes.
