Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The third entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street series benefits from a bigger budget, a widened scope, and the participation of some notable talent. Wes Craven returned to work on the screenplay, joined in the long run by Frank Darabont, Bruce Wagner, and Chuck Russell, whose direction brings a new slickness to the series. In future entries, this would prove a problem, but ANOES 3 benefits, its bigger special-effects budget allowing it to push the series closer to outright surrealism than ever before. The film's memorable collection of damaged characters helps as well, with Robert Englund's bogeyman operating as an objective correlative to their already abundant fears. Not counting the post-modern coda of Wes Craven's New Nightmare, this is hands down the best Nightmare movie after the original. It would also set a pattern for each of its successors to follow (to lesser effect), with each new entry assembling a similar band of intrepid, troubled teens and revealing a little more of Freddy's origins before assigning him a less-than-final end.

    My Childhood Nightmare Some childhood memories stick with you

    My Childhood Nightmare

    Some childhood memories stick with you into adulthood and often influence decisions you make later in life. For example, movies we have seen may persuade us not to watch those types of movies as we get older. Horror movies are films I can honestly say do not have a place in my DVD collection at home, and it is all because of one film. The Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors is the reason I do not watch horror movies.
    The movie is about a child murderer and rapist named Freddy Krueger who was killed in a fire by the parents of the kids he murdered. He then comes from the dead to haunt the dreams of the children who survived and the children of the parents who killed him. In their dreams, he tortures them in twisted ways and eventually they meet horrible deaths. The movie goes on to make many sequels because of the fact that Freddy can’t be destroyed.
    Freddy Krueger is a terrifying character. As a child, I remember being afraid to look at him. His skin was badly burned from the fire he was killed in. He wore an old worn out hat and a dull green and red striped sweater. His right hand bore a glove with long razor sharp knives as fingers. Thinking back, I believe it was the glove on his hand that terrified me the most. Freddy was always laughing and taking pleasure in the calamity that he caused which made him even scarier. I remember having dreams of him stabbing me in the gut like he did one of the unfortunate characters in the movie. Those visions still haunt me to this day, and as an adult I still will not watch this movie, or any other horror film for that matter.
    Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors in a sense was a very well plotted movie despite its gruesomeness. The scenes were dark and eery and gave the feeling of actually being there with the characters in their in their nightmares. As the characters walked through the halls of Freddy’s childhood home in their nightmares, the suspense keeps me guessing as to what is around the corner. Freddy always came up with original ways to frighten his victims by feeding off their deepest fears. The music was very scary and intense. There was a song that the ghost of the dead children would sing to the characters. It started off like “One, two Freddy’s coming for you. Three, four you better lock the door.” At the end the children would sing, “Nine, ten never sleep again.” That taunting song alone gave me nightmares. I was afraid to fall asleep for fear of Freddy haunting my dreams. Although Freddy sometimes had some cheesy catch phrases, that aspect does not take away from his overall fright factor.
    When I was growing up, my parents forbade me from watching horror movies. Back then, I thought they were just being mean and unfair. Now, I realize that sneaking and watching them was a bad idea and I should have listened to them. Freddy Krueger truly scared me as a child and influenced my decision to stay away from horror films for good.

    The Nightmare advanced in this chapter.

    Nancy returns in this one. She's become a psychiatrist and a specialist in pattern nightmares. In the hospital she works with a group of teens who all share a common element.

    Among the group is a girl named Kristen. She has a special gift. She can pull others into her dreams. When Freddy attacks her she calls for Nancy. Revealing to Nancy that the teens are the last of the Elm Street children and that Freddy has returned for them.

    Nancy's knowledge of dreams has advanced since her last encounter with Krueger. At some point everyone has had a dream power - an ability that makes the dreamer stronger in the dream than in real life. Nancy trains the others to utilize their Dream Powers even in a Freddy Dream. One was a Wizard, another had Super Strength, next became a Bad Ass Punk, Kristen was an Olympic Level Gymnast.

    Freddy's origins are also revealed in this chapter. Freddy's mom had been a young girl who was accidently locked in a psych ward with the criminally insane. Before she was found she'd been rape 100's of times. Freddy Krueger was the Son of 100 maniacs.

    In the final battle Nancy, Kristen and others link up in a single dream. Using their powers they go after Freddy. They become the Dream Warriors. Several fall in battle, including Nancy. She fights Freddy until her last breath.

    This is a great chapter in the series.

    HEATHER ROCKS MY SOCKS!!!!

    If you want to see the best Nightmares, see the ones with Heather Langenkamp. She is hot(if you're a guy) and if youre a girl you'll just love her acting. The first movie is definetely the best, but the 3rd and 7th follow right after. I have seen them all except for number 5 and im just DYING to see it. In this one, Nancy finds herself going to the psychiactric ward because her job is a Dream studier. There is a girl (Arquette) that has been having Freddy dreams. She is now in a group with other kids having dreams. They start to get picked off one by one, and Nancy is the only one who can save them.
