2. A Nightmare On Elm Street IV: The Dream Master (1988)
By this point in the series, Robert Englund was such a ham it wouldn’t surprise us if his make-up was just pork glued to his face.
According to legend, the effects sequences were filmed before a script was written, which is so plausible that we hope it’s true.
Bizarrely, this was the highest-grossing of the series until Freddy Versus Jason, which says more about the ’80s than the film’s quality.
1. The Karate Kid Part III (1989)
Finishing off the decade in ‘style’, The Karate Kid III epitomises what’s wrong with so many of the shitty sequels of the ’80s.
Leads that are way too old for their roles – Daniel’s (Ralph Macchio) whiny lack of self-confidence isn’t quite as appealing when he’s a grown man – and a plot that merely rehashes the original with diminishing charm.
Wax on, turn this off.
