Critic Reviews for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
Debuting director Chuck Russell elicits poor performances from most of his thesps, making it difficult to differentiate between pic's comic relief and unintended howlers.
A creepy score and Russell's sure grasp of the skewed logic of nightmares helps to sustain the ambiguity between the 'real' and 'dream' worlds, while Englund's Freddie now fits like a glove.
The film's dream sequences are ingenious, and they feature some remarkable nightmare images and special effects.
While it's better than its predecessor, it's still not quite up to its inspiration.
Audience Reviews for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
Great for its time and Freddy Kruger will always be a classic character!
Pretty lame, in all honesty. Was looking forward to this one as it brings Nancy's character back in, but it still wasn't that good. Maybe my expectations were too high, but pity help me, I still have three elm movies left in my box set!
Alright, that's it, this is the last Elm St. movie I ever want to see! Here I thought that after that horrendous second movie this one would be worse, but no, it was terrifying, and I went back to my nightmares with Freddy. The original scream queen Langenkamp, who played Nancy in the first movie, returns to help teenagers fight Freddy. Just like in the first one, the teens try to stay awake, and we are unaware of when they accidentally fall asleep only to be killed in some crazy way. I loved that they all tried to band together using their dream powers to fight him, it was very exciting. I really liked this movie, although it scared the socks off me.
