Back in the 1980's with the Freddy Krueger boom in full effect, New Line Cinema where churning out at least one Freddy Krueger movie a year. And who could blame them with the profits they made at the box office. This movie alone made over 49 million in profit at the box office.
Out of the Nightmare series this 4th movie is one of the better sequels released and is very enjoyable to watch if you're a fan of the series.
The movie starts out just after the third movie (obviously) with the same characters, except the lovely Patricia Arquette's character Kristen has been replaced by an actress called Tuesday Night. I tried to interview Tuesday once and ended up interviewing a porn star/hooker who went by the same name. Tuesday sings the opening theme for this movie as well which I played on my recent halloween radio show special.
Kristen has the power to drag other people into her dreams and when she does it this time round she gives Freddy Krueger a new slab of fresh meat to terrorize and fuck up in some of the most imaginative ways possible. So everyone must find a way to kill Freddy once and for all (just like the rest of these movies) before its too late.
Here are some great reasons to watch this movie..
FREDDY GETS BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE FROM DOG PISS
FREDDY SNOGS A BIRD WITH ASTHMA TO DEATH
There are some horror movies where you just hate the cast so much that you cant wait for Freddy Krueger to turn up and slash them to pieces and Nightmare 4 is no exception. In this movie there is this ugly little ratbag who is always breathing into her asthma inhaler. During a nightmare Freddy gives a proper snog and sucks every bit of air out of the silly bitches body even popping her eyes in for good measure.
