A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Don't Wanna Dream No More

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

I saw this in the theater with a group of high school friends, and it was great fun. Somehow A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors has always been just a bit more enjoyable than the typical horror sequel. Maybe it's because of the adorable young Patricia Arquette, or the youngish Laurence Fishburne. Or maybe it's because of "B" movie great John Saxon, or the return of the perpetually sleepy Heather Langenkamp, and the great, campy Robert Englund from the first movie. Or maybe it's because Wes Craven himself helped write the screenplay, alongside Frank Darabont, who would go on to become a highly acclaimed director himself. Or maybe it's because of the unique killing scenes, such as the huge Freddy Krueger snake, or the unforgettable TV scene ("It's your big break in TV!"). Maybe it's even because of the anthemic, cheesy metal theme song, "Dream Warriors" by Dokken. Anyway you slice it (no pun intended) this is a must-see for anyone who has a soft-spot for 1980s horror movies.
