Summer Elm St spree continues!! And I've learned that you really dont have to watch these suckers in order! Dream Warriors is just so dang classic. This viewing really cemented it as my favourite Elm St movie. I mean c'mon, when that Dokken song gets going you're definitely jumping on your couch Lord knows I was! And Into the Fire? Another solid tune! Top tunes here. Raise ya hand if you're getting day drunk up in heyar...🖐🖐🖐🖐🖐🖐🖐
This is basically the highlight reel of the series. Some of best kills, most imaginative scenes and most memorable characters. THEY DONT CALL THEM THE DREAM WARRIORS FOR NOTHIN! And then Nancy rolls up like "whatcha gonna do Freddy you got nothing on gnarly Nance ima dance your ass back to France!"
I love my 80s horror to have a solid balance of camp and mean spirited vibes and this one nails it. Its definitely a little more dark than campy but it just makes the silly parts seem more over the top in comparison. Freddys on fire with his one liners and menacing presence. Dont scare me bro!
Pretehhhhhhhhhh glad I never saw these until I was older because I feel for the rest of ya that must of had pure nightmares after watching these. Mrs Belial says she had a nightmare where a giant Freddy claw was crawling up her wall and she remembers it vividly! She watched it when she was six! Holy moly! I was watching friggin Popples back then! Love those dang Popples!
