A bad movie

There are a few good ideas but, ultimately, it remains a pretty bad movie. Only for Freddy Krueger's hardcore fans.

Here’s something funny. Nothing happens of interest in The Dream Master, Freddy anonymously kills some kids and makes wise cracks. Tons of stuff happens in The Dream Child and yet it’s a completely joyless slog. In theory the different elements of this movie should stack up to something truly great, in actuality it just ends up being subjectively the worst of the Elm Street films.

"Not one of the best Elm Street movies but the special effects are rather good."

Movie Reviews (part 8) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: At least the series still have a red thread with elements that are continued from the former one. Robert Englund is still watchable The Downs: The action and dreams are on auto-pilot now. Terrible child actor. Obvious ending. Laughable story about Kreuger needing a protege. Some very unconvincing effects. Lisa Wilcox is more annoying than a good heroine in this one."

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"The series here takes a depressing nosedive into zero-degree filmmaking. - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader Despite an impressive bag of special effects tricks, old Fred is starting to resemble one of those dead horses that studio execs insist on flogging. - David Hughes, Empire Magazine As for Englund, he still looks as if he's been working at Domino's too long, and he still sounds as if he's stealing his material from Don Rickles. - Richard Harrington, Washington Post Fifth edition of "

"January 19 "Hi, Alice. Want to make babies?" I have been putting off watching this movie for a while because I heard bad things about it, but I knew I had to give in and watch it eventually. While it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, it still wasn't good. The only thing that creeped me out in this movie was those kids singing Freddy's song (Even though it always does.) and the shower scene was kind of scary. Most of the dream scenes were weird and not in a good way and some of t"
