User Review

Not as good as the first, but better than the 2nd

Rating: 7/10


A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors is the third installment of
the Nightmare on Elm Street series. It's actually one of the better
sequels that I enjoyed. I was lucky enough to get the Nightmare on Elm
Street series boxed DVD set for my birthday. So I've now seen all the
sequels and A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors is a decent
sequel. Not to mention it was pretty cool to see Patricia Arquette's
first big role, I can't believe a lot of these movies how many stars
started out in this series. It was also a nice touch that they had
Nancy back for this film. The deaths are gory and Freddy is back and
meaner than ever! This time he's after the kids in the mental
institution and he's not going to go easy on them at all.

Nancy has now grown up and she's become a therapist for dreams, she
starts her work at the mental institution where she meets Kirsten, a
girl who has the power to pull other people into her dreams. Kirsten is
a bit scared of her powers though and knows that Freddy wants to use
her so he could pretty much squish several bugs with one stomp. But
Nancy knows that Freddy is up to his old ways and wants to help Kirsten
along with the other teenagers at the hospital that Freddy is after,
but hopefully she can do it before it's too late.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors has one of my favorite
nightmare sequences. I loved the puppet on the strings, only, well, I
won't spoil it, you're going to have to trust me when I say that this
was a very cool death scene. This is a must see for the Nightmare on
Elm Street fans of course, but even you're just looking for a good
scare, I promise you that you'll get a few chills from watching this
nightmare. Freddy isn't going light when it comes to scaring these
kids… to death.

7/10
