Dollar Bin Film - "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors"


A hospital ward full of disturbed teenagers are the latest target for Freddy Krueger. The kids, led by Freddie's main opponent in the first film (Nancy), prepare to fight back.

This is probably my favorite sequel of all the Freddy films. It's the first big screen role of Patricia Arquette (Medium), Nancy is back, and say for Glenn's death in the first film, this movie has the greatest, goriest, and most kick ass death scenes in any other Freddy film (and any film of that time as a matter of fact)! It's a lot more creative and imaginative than the second Nightmare film and this is the film where Freddy really gets into spewing his one liner zingers that we've all come to know and love. Wes Craven's writing is witty, fast paced, and genuinely scary. The acting is pretty good and the special effects are amazing. This is a great film and if you haven't seen it yet, I feel sorry for you. Go rent/buy it now and make it a movie night!

i love dream warriors too! it seems to run across the board for horror fans that they all loved this movie as far as Nightmare goes. this is also the movie that led to Freddy becoming more campy than dark. methinks the minds behind the movies got it wrong with this one (imagine that). it wasn't so much the humor of freddy that made this one a success but the fact that they all had dream powers. that's what rocked about this film. that totally kicked ass.
this film holds one of my favorite effects ever done in a film. namely where, i think it's nancy it's been awhile, falls back into the chair and goes right into through it into the dream! awesome effect.

The best of the Nightmare on Elm Stree films. Totally agree, these are the best effects on any of the films, that scene with Freddy using that as a puppet....so cool! And that Freddy Worm...freaking cool!

They just dont make them like this anymore!
