Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) 31 Days of Horror: Terror-Thon at the Somerville Theatre   1 comment


Freddy Krueger appeared first in 1984 and we still can’t get rid of the guy. I’ve never liked this Wes Craven franchise, but it was part of a mini-film festival so I endured it. Heather Langenkamp reprises her role as someone sleepy. This time she wants us to believe she’s a doctoral student so to prove it she dyes a skunk streak in her hair and wears her mother’s clothes.

I’m a professional.

Robert Englund plays Freddy, of course and Patricia Arquette appears because at least one of the kids needs to act.

My agent said if I did this film, I’d meet Christian Slater.

Craig Wasson sails through this based on the power of his star turn in Body Double. So there’s that. John Saxon also stars and has the best scene in the film. The eightiesness of Dream Warriors was the big draw, but I could have lived without it. Yeah yeah shoulder pads. Yeah yeah generic bad tunes. Anyway, they kill Freddy…again so yay! Oh crap, he’s back. Eight films and one remake of the original later, Freddy still hasn’t changed his shirt.

I’ve been working out.

This was supposed to be funny, but aside from floating angelic John Saxon surrounded by glitter and sparkles, I didn’t laugh once.

Really, movie?
