A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream MasterDirector: Renny Harlin
The dreams of innocent children once again fall victim to everyone's favorite bogeyman Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master. New Line has done a good job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Also included on this disc is a pan-and-scan version of the film. The colors in the image tend to look very well saturated with only a small amount of bleeding in a few scenes. This is generally a very solid transfer with even flesh tones and dark black levels. The audio is presented in a newly remixed 5.1 soundtrack (as well as the original 2.0 soundtrack). This new mix is very good with some excellent surround sounds filtering out through both the front and rear speakers. All aspects of the dialogue, effects, and music are free of any excessive distortion or hiss. Also included on this disc are English captions. The only extra features available on this edition of A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master are some cast and crew bios, the original theatrical trailer, and some DVD-ROM content. While the video and audio portions of the disc are good, the box set of all seven films is recommended for true fans.

This film is among the most creative in the series. As the New Line Cinema film strip penetrates the screen and Tuesday Knight's lyrics engulf you, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master sets itself apart from other run-of-the-mill horror sequels. It is cathartic to watch the main character Alice, played by Lisa Wilcox, gain strength and battle Freddy in an all out good vs. evil confrontation. This is Renny Harlin's first film. He later on directed films such as A Long Kiss Goodnight, Deep Blue Sea, and Cutthroat Island. Renny's directing creativity along with Lisa Wilcox's quality as an actress makes the film worth watching.
Picking up were Nightmare on ELm.Street 3 left off,the gifted Kirsten(Tuesday Knight)is still having Freddy nightmares,until her friends Kincaid(Ken Sagoes)and Joey(Rodbey Eastman)get killed in thier sleep,she embarks into another fright feast!Now her friend,Alice(Lisa Wilcox)must help before she dies too!Robert Englund's 4th proformance as the dream killer.A must see.
