A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) - Renny Harlin

I love when sequels honor the continuity of the previous film. I don't like when different actors are cast in roles that others had previously. It doesn't help the flow. Nightmare on Elm Street 4 is one of those movies. While it may be a pretty awful road. This sequel at least follows the narrative. 
The movie follows the events of the previous film A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors. We catch up with the remaining Elm Street kids who have been released from the Westin Hills Asylum. They try to live normal lives. However, Freddy isn't dead and is coming back for his revenge on the Dream Warriors.
It's a shame that Patricia Arquette didn't make it back for this one. I enjoyed her character in the third movie. But at least I got Kincade for a little while. He kicks ass. Robert Englund gets top billing in this installment for the first time and shows it as the top star. 
Nightmare 4 has a pretty kick ass soundtrack. I especially liked the workout montage …
