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

Nightmare on elm street 4 in my opinion is the most fun Freddy film in the entire series. Sure nightmares 1,2, and 3 were scarier and in a lot of peoples opinions better, but this movie combined a bit of scares with a lot of fun, imaginative kills. The kill count in the movie wasn't as much as nightmare 3, but wasn't as few as 5 or 6. Freddys one liners are funny and you can really see the transition of Krueger as sick twisted villain. He laughs while he's killing you and that's what makes the Freddy character one of my favorite villains of all time. Englund is phenomenal at the role and you can tell he really enjoys it. The soundtrack is excellent as well. Love the song "don't be afraid of your dreams" by Go West. The cast is really fun and energetic and Englund himself said that this was his favorite Elm Street film to work on. Wilcox (Alice) was a very underrated heroine. Probably my favorite of all the females. Underrated movie and a ton of fun. If you like a fun horror movie that has a little everything then this movie is for you.
