In 4th grade I had a dream Freddy was my friend and wanted to kill another buddy of mine. When I told him no he punched me in the face and I woke up with a bloody nose. Dream Master.
After three successful A Nightmare on Elm Street films, short-lived spinoff series “Freddy’s Nightmares” was launched in October of 1988. The series, which premiered the same year Dream Master was released, kicked off with a Tobe Hooper-directed episode that centered on Freddy Krueger’s origin story, but from that point forward, Freddy (played, as always, by Robert Englund) mostly served as the host of the series rather than the star. The stories were set in the fictional town of Springwood, Ohio, and the dream demon only popped up from time to time.
