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 Parker (who has the ability to draw others into her dreams) wills her special ability to her new best friend Alice Johnson before her demise. Afterwards, she 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. Can Alice embrace her new power to finally defeat Freddy or is it already too late?Written by

(At around one hour and thirteen minutes) When Dan and Alice go to the hospital, there is an announcement on the PA requesting a Dr. Shaye, a reference to Robert Shaye, producer of the franchise, and CEO of New Line Cinema. See more »

A text before the opening credits reads as follows: "When deep sleep falleth on men, fear came apon me. And trembling which made all my bones to shake" -Job IV, 13-14 See more »
The dialogue from the film playing inside the movie theater when Alice first walks in and sits down can be heard in the original theatrical version and on earlier VHS editions, but the dialogue has been dubbed out from later VHS and DVD releases so that you can only hear the background piano music instead. The missing audio can be heard on Blu-ray if you select the "English Original Theatrical" audio track, but is missing from the "English DTS-HD Master Audio" track.
Oddly enough, if you play the film with the closed captions or subtitles features, the dialogue will still appear on screen, even though nobody can be heard talking. The missing dialogue is as follows:
Man: See ya, Alvin.
Boy: Hey, he ain't no paper man.
Girl: Why, don't you know him? That's "Hot Fingers" Curly.
Boy: Boy, he really swings out hoppin' with a jive. You want to dance?

Pop Culture Thoughts
Although it's aged poorly and has lost much of its sheen over the years, this fourth entry in the blockbuster series definitely has its moments. There are a variety of fascinating and well-executed set pieces that rank as some of the series-best, like the waterbed sequence and the Roach Motel attack scene, and its characters are surprisingly likable and engaging. Tuesday Knight, reprising Patricia Arquette's role from the previous entry, doesn't have Arquette's magnetic severity but everyone else seems comfortable in their roles. Thirty years following its release, it's impossible not to notice that the movie often plays like it was shot for television, but the crackerjack climax is worth the admission price on its own.
