A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

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

Daily Horror Hunt #47 (May 2022)
26. Nostalgia movie

This is not the first horror movie I saw. That would actually be Freddy's Revenge, which I love, but Dream Warriors is the one that I remember waiting to see. It was 1988 and I had to wait until my Grandma was asleep so I could sneak down and watch it on the living room TV and damn if it didn't change my life.

Nancy is back, the kills are at level 11 and Freddy is funny, but not camp. This is the movie that launched Freddy-mania and turned me into a hardened horror hound at a young age. Some of the Effects are a little ropey now (looking at you Freddy skeleton) but it is still the most effective set-up and conclusion in the series even eclipsing the first one in my eyes. So much canonical Freddy lore waited for this movie. This movie is what I think of when I think Freddy.
