    I would not necessarily call myself a die hard slasher movie fanatic, but it is safe to say I love me some Freddy Kreuger. Of all the Nightmare on Elm Street movies I have seen, and believe me I have seen them at least three lifetimes over, I would have to say that Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors is the best of the entire series.
  • Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors Movie
  • The film starts with a girl name Kristen who is up late at night, clearly sleep deprived, working on some sort of craft project. Feeling sleep approaching, she takes in a mouthful of coffee grounds and soda to help stay awake as well as turn up her music to the loudest volume.

  • Upon hearing the loud music, Kristen’s mom who is dressed as if she has just come from a party, grills Kristen about staying past one in the morning. Kristen tells her she wanted to wait up for her, but it was actually a ploy to keep from falling asleep. From the conversation alone, you can clearly tell that Kristen and her mother have a bad relationship. However, Kristen concedes and gets into bed and goes to sleep.

  • Kristen is awoken by the sounds of little girls dressed in white dresses, playing in front of the house from the first movie in the series, singing a familiar nursery rhyme that warns potential victims of Freddy’s arrival. Kristen introduces herself to one of the girls on a tricycle who leads Kristen into the abandoned house. Clearly, not following someone into a murder’s house is one of the major rules of slasher film survival, but Kristen follows the girl anyway. As they are talking, there is a sound from upstairs and the little girls lets Kristen know that Freddy’s home. In an attempt to save her, Kristen grabs the little girls and runs with her in her arms trying to evade Freddy who almost catches her. Kristen hears the little girl telling her to put her down only to look down and see a corpse is in the place of the once alive girl. Kristen screams and then wakes up. Kristen then gets up from her bed and goes into the bathroom, when she proceeds to turn on the water, the facet turns into a hand and grabs her and cuts Kristen’s wrist. When Kristen’s mother walk in, she only sees Kristen with a razor in her hand and her wrist bleeding allowing her to assume Kristen tried to commit suicide.

  • The following day Kristen is admitted to Westin Hills, a psychiatric hospital, which will be later referred to in Jason vs. Freddy which in and of itself was a huge disappoint. The staff attempts to give her a sedative which is when Kristen has a major fit and even attacks Max, who is an orderly at the facility. Backed into a corner, Kristen begins singing the nursery rhyme she heard in her dreams which warns you of Freddy’s arrival. At the end of the song she begins to stumble on her words when Nancy Thompson (the original actress from the first Nightmare on Elm Street) appears and finishes the rhyme. She asks Kristen where she heard the song only for Kristen to silently hug her with relief.

  • Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors Movie
  • During Kristen’s first night at the psychiatric hospital, she falls asleep only to be lured into Freddy’s house once more. While in what appears to be a dining room, a large worm tries to eat her. Frantic and panicked, Kristen calls for Nancy who mysteriously appears in dream through a broken mirror. Nancy sees Kristen about to be eaten alive, so she grabs a broken piece of mirror and stabs the worm in the eye. In pain, the worm lets go of Kristen long enough to get a good look at Nancy and for the two to recognize each other. Shocked to see the worm is Freddy, Nancy screams for Kristen to run. Both Nancy and Kristen run into a room where Nancy demands Kristen to get them out of the dream, she does and Nancy wakes up in her chair staring at her old house Kristen was working on in the opening sequence of the film, and this is where the movie really starts to get good.

  • Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors Movie
  • This is the best movie of the Nightmare on Elm Street by far because it brings back Nancy from the first movie, and the only survivor which summed up the confusing first ending, and it essentially started the series over. The reason why I say the third movie started the series over because the second movie was horrible. The plot was horrible and was badly written, the characters were horrible, even the Freddy costume and mask were horrible. The second movie had nothing to do with the franchise which really threw me off, and I think this movie went back to the original story line of the franchise.

  • Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors Movie
  • When I saw Nancy walk into that room let me tell you I was shocked and covered with speechless. To this day, that has probably been the best surprise of any movie I have seen thus far. Even though six years has passed in the movie, Nancy was the same yet different. She still had that white streak in her hair which I was surprised the character would want to keep that considering the circumstances surrounding how her hair became white in the first place. It was interesting to see Nancy form immediate bonds with her co-worker Dr. Neil Gordon and Kristen. I think she saw herself in Kristen which is why she was so protective over her.

  • Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors Movie
  • I did, however, dislike how Nancy had all these signs of Freddy Kreuger being alive and well such as finding her old house as an arts and crafts project in Kristen’s room, yet she still decided to overlook the obvious. I also think she was in such a denial even after being pulled into Kristen’s dream that it led to two more teenagers at the hospital being killed by Freddy in their sleep. It was not until after the second death, which is still a classic scene by the way in any horror film, where she finally decides to open up to Dr. Gordon and let him know what was really going on with the deaths.

  • Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors Movie
  • Kincaid was my second favorite character of the movie. He was the epitome of comic relief and even though he was enduring the same horrors as the other teenagers, he was able to cope with sarcasm which was often the result of good comedic timing. For example, Jennifer said after she get out of the hospital she was going to Hollywood to become an actress, Kincaid replied by saying she would star in a show called the lifestyles of the rich and psychotic. It was classic. Despite his sarcasm, of all of the teenagers Kincaid by far was the strongest of them all and was determined to make it to the end.

    Another character I was glad to see was Nancy’s father. In the first movie he was the sheriff, but after everything that had taken place in the first film with the death of Nancy’s friends and his own wife, he either stepped down from the position or was fired. Either way, his story line was not as clear, but it was clear that he had trouble dealing with what happened in the first movie because now he was a security guard with a bad drinking problem, and his relationship with Nancy was no better.

    I am a huge Freddy Kreuger fan, but I think this third installment of the best of the franchise. Nancy from the first movie reappeared with a major role, and Freddy was back to being scary like in the first film, and not laughable in the second. I thought this cast was way better than the second, and I liked how the movie wanted to revisit how the first one left off; it was almost as if Freddy had unfinished business and this was his moment to kill off the last of the Elm Street children–including Nancy who was the one to get away. If you do not see any movie of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, at least see this one because I truly believe it was the best of all the movies.
