Some people feel that "Dream Warriors" is the real follow-up to the original movie, which benefited by bringing Wes Craven back to the fold for the script. They feel the actual first sequel, 1985's "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge," was just a rushed attempt to get a sequel out as fast as possible to capitalize on the still hot hype of the original. They say it wasn't well thought-out or paced and therefore seems out-of-sync. I disagree. I found it a perfectly fitting and effective continuation of the story. We know from part 3 (this movie) that Nancy was off at college during the time of part 2 so what was wrong with showing what was happening back on Elm Street with a new cast of characters?
In any case, practically the entire story in “Dream Warriors” takes place in or around the psychiatric hospital, and you really get the feeling that the staff and patients are real people. You sense, for instance, that Max (Fishburne) really cares about the kids; moreover, the warmth between Nancy and Dr. Gordon (Wasson) is palpable. Like the original, Heather makes for a quality protagonist and Englund is charismatic as the sinister psycho.
The movie runs 96 minutes and was shot in Los Angeles (the psychiatric hospital is at UCLA in Westwood).
In this film, Freddy returns with his sights on killing the remaining kids of Elm Street who are all in a mental ward....oh gee I wonder why? Also, Nancy (from the first film) makes a reprise in this film. In my opinion, this film should have been the second one and the second film should have been the third, but one must realize that this was probably a casting problem or maybe she couldn't do it....hmmmmm.
One of the unique qualities about this film is that it's the beginning of where Freddy starts to kill his victims in unusual ways. It also marks the beginning of Freddy as "King of the One liners." What's really disturbing besides Freddy are these kids. I mean they are strange, mentally-ill rejects, which with the help of a doctor and Nancy they will all unlock powers to help them battle Freddy in the dreamworld.
This third installment isn't just the best Nightmare film, but is also the most shocking of them all! A must buy for all horror fans.

This, the third film in the series, is admittedly the hardest one for me to share an opinion.Read more
