A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

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

Freddy Krueger: "This is it, Jennifer. Your big break in TV. Welcome to prime time, bitch!"

Filled with laughs and unsetteling scenes, Freddy is back once again to haunt and torment a young group of people. Written by Wes Craven, the plot now focuses on Freddy Krueger seeking revenge by killing off the remaining children from the parents that burned him. Nancy Thompson from the original movie returns as well as she tries to help the others control their dreams.

The opening scene doesn't take too long to create that gloomy atmosphere, which immediately sets the mood for the rest of the movie. Dream Warriors jumps right in before we're even introduced to any characters besides Kirsten and I absolutely loved it. The practical effects, Robert Englund's performance and entire set-up were great. However, I have to admit that the first half of the movie was better than the second one. Poor, early 90's visual effects are one thing but the wrecking yard scene was too much for me to handle. What I appreciated the most was the fact that the movie starts off with this mysterious, eerie vibe and later shifting in Freddy Kreuger running around, yelling and mocking his victims.

I must be dreaming because this piece of cinema is pure brilliance when it comes to campy Horror and practical effects. Freddy Krueger is without a doubt one of the most hilarious and wicked monster villains ever on the big screen. Hats off to both Chuck Russell and Wes Craven.
