A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: Dream Master
A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: Dream Master ★★½ 1988 (R)
Freddy Krueger is still preying on people in their dreams, but he may have met his match as he battles for supremacy with a telepathically talented girl. What Part 4 lacks in substance, it makes up for in visual verve, including scenes of a kid drowning in his waterbed, and a pizza covered with pepperoni-like faces of Freddy's previous victims. This boxoffice bonanza set a new record as the most successful opening weekend of any independently released film. Followed by “A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: Dream Child.” 99m/C VHS, DVD .
