Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors movie review


“Welcome to primetime, bitch!”

In 2008, Christopher Nolan asked, “How many good third movies in a franchise can people name?”  This one.  This is the one!  Sure, Freddy’s Revenge was garbage, but man, did Dream Warriors get it right.  

This one is my favorite of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise; there’s so much cool stuff in it!  They use the first film’s mythology to perfection by bringing Nancy back and delving even further into Freddy’s back story.  Although the characters aren’t that much fun, the archetypes are understandable and the action is imaginative.  The puppet sequence, the worm, the needles, the mirrors, the make out session, the TV!  As a bonus, the movie divides up the climax between the dream world and the real world to excellent effect.

Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors rocks.  I could go on and on, but if you haven’t seen it in a while, watch it again, and if you’ve never watched it, what are you waiting for?  You don’t need to see the first one (they catch you up) or the second flick (waste of time in terms of story… and in general), so you can just jump right in.

I highly recommend you do – tell ’em Freddy sent ya!

Or me, either way.
