A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors ★★★★½

Conceptually ambitious horror film where fear leads into terror and subconscious leaks into conscious. It's setting is a clinic treating teens whose nightmares share the same figure of Freddy Krueger who was a psychopathic child murderer hunted down and burned alive by a vigilante mob who were actually their parents. We meet the mother of one teen played by Brooke Bundy and we can imagine her on that night long ago watching as Freddie burned alive and yet she doesn't even seem like someone who would ever do anything like that, so it's pretty creepy IMO, not that I'm defending Freddie so much as turned off by capital punishment and if I'm trying to find an original angle to analyze this film it's based on my intense dislike of our fixation with it and the bad karma it leaves. What if all the executed all came back in our nightmares? I could go into how dark that backstory feels to me personally but that would take away from the mindblowing work they did to create the insane visual effects of each nightmare in this film.
