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.

While it's better than its predecessor, it's still not quite up to its inspiration.

The best 'Elm Street' film next to the 1984 original....Freddy's finest moment since his debut

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

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

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

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