TITLE: A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master
YEAR RELEASED: 1988
SYNOPSIS: "Freddy Krueger, the bastard son of a hundred maniacs, is back! This time, he takes on a girl named Alice and her friends."
REVIEW: This is the sequel that finally crossed Freddy over from scary, demonic dream slasher to comedic serial killer; a goofy, yet stylish entry in the franchise! Robert Englund does a fine job as Freddy once again, but delivers many one liners every time he's on screen. The tone of this flick is aimed at a more lighter, MTV friendlyp crowd. Freddy's one liners in this film tend to stick better and land well than other future installments, and the special effects are once more, excellent. Visually, it's more vibrant than its dark predecessors, but too intriguing to miss. The way Freddy returns to slaughter the remaining Elm Street kids is probably one of the dumbest and most bizarre resurrection sequences in the series; apparently, dog piss morphs into resurrecting hellfire in the dream world! The protagonists of this film are not as interesting as the last 3 films cast either (save for Alice, portrayed by Lisa Wilcox), and Tuesday Knight's performance as Kristen Parker, is not as well received as Patricia Arquette's run on the character in A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987). The soundtrack and musical score to this film are good additions. The ending scene to this one, when Freddy is defeated, is pretty weak to be honest in comparison to the other films. Despite some misgivings, this is another good, but not great, Nightmare On Elm Street movie.
STAR RATING: ⭐⭐⭐ (out of 4 stars)
I haven't seen this since the theater. I'm one of the people who like this more than the 90s movie. Sure Tim Curry as Pennywise scared the shit out of me as a kid, but I'm told I'm a grown ass man now so his movie doesn't really do it for me anymore. Granted this movie didn't scare me at all I just thought it was a fun movie. #it#pennywise#stephenking#nowwatching#horror#instahorror#horrorfan#horrormovies
#TheSand : After an all-night graduation beach party, a group of hung-over twenty-somethings awake to a beating sun, & a seemingly carnivorous beach that devours anything with a heartbeat that touches the sand. #Review : I’ll be honest I thought I was going to hate this but I ended up really enjoying it! Especially know that it was only filmed in 12 Days. I’m also surprised that this has such low ratings. While it has its flaws it’s a fun & entertaining watch. For starters the premise, while ludicrous, is refreshing & executed very well. The pacing is perfectly timed & everything moves at a brisk pace never overstaying it’s welcome. It builds to one hell of an explosive ending. The beach setting is great & really emulates a sense of isolation & being trapped. Especially with the characters having to figure out a way off the beach without touching the sand. Interesting predicaments ensue. The characters have just enough backstory & are backed by decent acting. I loved the comedy that was thrown in. The creatures were well designed & interesting. There’s just enough explanation about them. And don’t worry there is plenty of gruesome deaths throughout. The effects were awesome! Overall if you love low budget creature flicks I recommend giving this one a watch. It won’t disappoint. Rating: 3.3 Out Of 5
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
R | Horror
In Wes Craven's classic slasher film, several Midwestern teenagers fall prey to Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), a disfigured midnight mangler who preys on the teenagers in their dreams -- which, in turn, kills them in reality. After investigating the phenomenon, Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) begins to suspect that a dark secret kept by her and her friends' parents may be the key to unraveling the mystery, but can Nancy and her boyfriend Glen (Johnny Depp) solve the puzzle before it's too late?
Alice Sweet Alice (1976) ⭐️⭐️ I feel like the only reason people like this movie is because it happened in the 70s, and there is a lot of 70s horror worship, and also because it mimics Italian giallo. When taken at face value, this isn't even a great C rated Italian giallo, I've seen giallo films that were truly bad and beat this all to hell. I don't like giallo films as a general rule. This wasn't the most boring film I've ever seen, but it's damned close. There just isn't anything memorable about this and if I don't log it here, I'll forget I ever watched it. Two stars because it was Brooke Shields's first role, and because the mask was a pretty great idea. #horror#horrorfam#horrorfan#horrorlife#horrornerd#horroraddict#horrorfilm#horrormovies#instahorror#ilovehorror#horrorjunkie#horrorfanatic#70shorror
