Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. When the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Following up the previous Nightmare film, the dream demon Freddy Krueger is resurrected from his apparent demise, and rapidly tracks down and kills all three of the surviving Elm Street kids. However, Kristen (who has the ability to draw others into her dreams) wills her special ability to her friend Alice before her demise. Afterwords, Alice soon realizes that Freddy is taking advantage of that unknown power she now wields to pull a new group of teenage children into his foul domain. Written by

While this may not be the scariest movie ever made, its still entertaining, even after the 130th viewing. Thats the most important thing to me. By the time the audience gets to Nightmare 4 or Friday 6, they know the rules, they know the killer, so its not likely they will get scared. Might as well make for an enjoyable film with the things they came to see: bodies piling up, their favorite slasher and teens doing unbelievably stupid things that allows them to yell at the screen in protest! The special effects are superb and still hold up, the story continues nicely with the third, unlike the second, which the franchise steered clear from. The surviving Elm Street trio, Kristen, Kincaid and Joey are back and along with them are the most likable characters in horror movie history. See, NOES films were always good about having characters you actually cared about. It makes their deaths more harsh. The deaths, while not all that bloody are some of the more memorable ones. Nightmare on Elm Street 4 is a great edition to the already awesome original and part 3 (again lets not mention the dreaded 2nd film).
