Naweed’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Welcome to Primetime, Bitch!”
Continuing my Halloween watch with Dream Warriors. I think it’s fair to say this is the best Nightmare on Elm St sequel and overall one of the better slasher/horror sequels out there. Usually these movies and sequels decline in quality and get lost in their campy ways but not this film.
Dark and giving Freddy a sinister origin, this builds on the iconic original film in the best ways. An enjoyable cast highlighted by the return of Nancy (the lovely Heather Langenkamp) one of the best “final girls” in horror history. Once I checked who the writers were I wasn’t surprised of the films quality. Chuck Russell, Wes Craven, and even Frank Darabont.
