Naughty aka Juli Norwood’s review published on Letterboxd:
The third film in the franchise directed by Chuck Russell thankfully removed the sour after taste left behind by its ill conceived predecessor Freddy's Revenge! The ship has been righted, time to set sail once again in the not so tranquil waters of Freddy Krueger's world!
In this sequel Not only do we explore the origins of Freddy Krueger but we also witness Freddy slowly evolve into the snarky aficionado of 1 liner's! I got a real kick out of watching Freddy getting down with his big bad self! He is definitely coming into his own! And when Freddy is in the groove it takes everything to a whole new level!
While the rules from the original "A Nightmare on Elm Street" once again apply, we also discover Freddy isn't the only one whom has special powers in the dream realm where battles between good and evil will be fought! The story is clever, creative and advances the storyline in the right direction!
Was a real treat seeing younger versions of Patricia Arquette and Laurence Fishburne in the film! I had totally forgot they were part of the Nightmare on Elm Street stable of actors and actresses so it is good to revisit these old horror classics every now and again!
