A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

Collective dreaming is the most powerful way to push back a nightmare; united against a deep-cutting dark, community is the most powerful weapon we have. Russell's film is a terrific expansion of Freddy's mythology and retribution for a generation doomed by the actions of their parents. Only children can make lasting change. Only children can push forward into a dream.

Russell also explores the consequences of stolen sleep and dreams; psyches fracture and the bags under your eyes cocoon you away from night's drifting consciousness. And for the first time in the series (I'm excited to see if this continues), Freddy's hells are personalized to each character's traumas. Maximum pain is produced, but also, a chance for the ultimate catharsis.

Ache as a weapon.

Heather Langenkamp is perfection.
