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

None-more-80s sequel which does away with any efforts to be scary, and just has fun instead. Its main priority seems to be cementing Freddy's position as an icon, someone who you know you'll have a good time watching, and perhaps it's nostalgia talking, but I don't have a problem with that.

Also, any horror film that credits six different FX companies in its opening credits is fine by me. It means that there are going to be so many set-pieces that one company couldn't possibly handle the lot, and sure enough, something strange and exciting happens every 10 minutes. As a consequence, the movie flies by and is over in a flash.
