Somehow A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors has always been just a bit more enjoyable than the typical horror sequel.

It's a shame this is about as good as it got for the series...

...the mental-hospital setting [is] certainly a refreshing change from the suburban atmosphere that dominated the first two films.

Arguably the most imaginative of the horror franchise, with a fair number of truly resonant scenes.

First-time director Russell sustains the legend's success with the help of a workable plot and some first-rate special effects.

Freddy is a vital killer who brings a sense of creepy fun to his demented work - moviegoers actually like the guy. The nightmares themselves are another reason for the series' success.

The Slasher genre took a different direction with this sarcastic killer who delights in torturing his victims, simulating the nightmares we all experience.

Parts of it work extraordinarily well for a horror film of this vintage. And parts of it don't particularly work at all.

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.
