A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

"Good"

A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors Review


The Nightmare continues, with two newcomers who would turn out to be fairly big stars -- Patricia Arquette and "Larry" Fishburne (dig the beard!) -- plus appearances from two classic actors whose presence is always welcome -- Dick Cavett and Zsa Zsa Gabor. This time, Heather Langenkamp from Nightmare #1 is a counselor to troubled teens, and Freddie decides to try to get them to commit suicide, thus doing in his old nemesis and a bunch of rotten kids at the same time. Far better than Nightmare #2, this one has a serpentine Freddie vomiting up a half-eaten, perpetually screaming Arquette. Can you not love this?

Oh, and the theme song's by Dokken, hell yeah!
