The film begins with young Kristen Parker (Patricia Arquette, in her first movie role) having a horrible nightmare. She wakes up, and is faced with another nightmare! In this nightmare, Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) cuts her wrists open. When her mom finds her, it looks as if Kristen was trying to commit suicide. So, her mother, Elaine (Brooke Bundy) takes her to a hospital full of (supposedly) crazy teens, whom try to commit suicide as well. As it turns out, they're all dreaming of Mr. Krueger, but all the doctors think they're psychotic. Dr. Elizibeth Simms (Priscilla Pointer, Carrie) has them sedated to help them sleep well. However, this causes many deaths, and they keep on coming until Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp), survivor of the first film and now a dream specialist, comes to help them. Dr. Neil Gordan (Craig Wasson, Body Double) takes a liking to her, and so they both try to help out the troubled teens before there are no more troubled teens to help!
This movie's fantastic! Thanks to a clever script by Frank Darabont (who would later write "The Green Mile" and "The Shawshank Redemption") and co-written with three others including series creator Wes Craven. The script's great. It moves at a good, fast pace, and never slows down a bit (something Part 2 did quite a bit).Read more ›
In his thrid screen adventure, Freddy haunts a mental hospital where he continues to disturb the last of the Elm Street kids. Nancy Thompson, from Nightmare 1, comes into focus with Craig Wasson's character, to help these kids with their horrifying nightmares of one red and green sweatered, blade-gloved boogeyman. I wonder who that could be??? Well, Freddy starts to kill teens, one-by-one in standard modern-day horror style. And we notice he's more in the lighting of this film than in previous installments. I don't think that's a bad thing. I find his features should be revealed. His features are amazing. The make-up artists who work on the films, David Miller and Kevin Yagher, have always done a superb job doing Freddy's make-up. As for the story of the film...it was eventuall do to the fact Freddy haunts several teen-nightmares. Some say these films mainly offer great effects. But, I think in saying that, they over-look how great these effects are. And anyway, there's much more to these films than just special effects.
This particular "Nightmare on Elm Street" has a rather ingenious storyline; possibly the most creative in the series. The "survivors" of Elm Street are slowly falling victim to Krueger's violent rampage one by one (although the deaths are considered "suicides" by the doctors). Only a few remain alive in a psychiatric ward and they all have similar nightmares. They all dream of a man who is horribly scarred and wears a glove with razor blades for fingers. And they know that he is out to get them. However, these aren't your typical survivors. They have special powers and gifts in their dream world that makes them unique and powerful. These gifts and powers may be the only thing that can stop Freddy once and for all, before he murders each and every one of them.
This one was actually co-written by Wes Craven, the man behind the original "Nightmare on Elm Street." It really shows because this one isn't as funny as the later ones. It's more creepy and scary, too. The movie was very well-directed and written. The actors were great and each of them really made the movie work. And of course, you have to give credit to Robert Englund, who really shines as Freddy. There is no way anybody else could play the part. Englund practically made the role his own.
The DVD doesn't have much to offer, but it does look and sound great.Read more ›
