A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors ★★★★★

Had the distinct pleasure tonight of introducing my nephew to this awesome movie, not only my favorite film in the whole series but honestly one of the most entertaining and creative horror/fantasy films out there, period.

Such wonderful characters (played by a uniformly excellent cast), such imaginative sets and special effects. And this is the perfect incarnation of Freddy Krueger, in my opinion. He's funny as hell here, taking obvious, deliciously cruel glee in his witticisms, but they're used very sparingly, as at this point he hadn't yet devolved into a pun-happy clown. In other words, here he was funny and charismatic, but still threatening and scary, too, a combination that is hard to beat in a supervillain.
