|Flap gummed Freddy is back for this fourth installment of the Elm Street series - and the end of viewing horror icon Krueger as anything other than a talky comedian.
Freddy picks up his slashing ways by killing off all the 'dream warriors' who managed to survive from Elm Street 3.
But he soon finds he's met his match with dream manipulator Alice (Wilcox) who unleashes all the imprisoned souls of Freddy's poor victims.
An unfrightening circus show with lots of bells and whistles, but few moments of actual scares.
The scariest concept we could devise for future nightmares?
Freddy keeps his mouth shut and slays in silence.
