Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. While the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Picking up where the original Nightmare left off, Nancy has grown up and become a psychiatrist specializing in dream therapy. She meets a group of children at a local hospital facing Freddy Krueger, the same demon she once encountered in her sleep. One of them is Kristen, who has the power to draw other people into her dreams. Working with a male doctor assigned to the case, Nancy helps the kids realize their special abilities within the nightmare world. When Freddy captures one of her charges, she leads a rescue attempt into Krueger's domain, in hopes of putting his spirit to rest once and for all. Written by

Chuck Russell was making his directorial debut with Dream Warriors, but the script he and Frank Darabont delivered called for a $20 million budget to pull off the effects even though they only had $4.5 million. The result was an incredibly tense set, not a particularly ideal setting for Patricia Arquette to make her film debut. On her first day of filming, the production was already so behind they didn't get to her scenes until 4 AM by which point she had forgotten her lines! It took 52 takes of her feebly making her way through it before they simply fed her the lines via cue cards behind the camera. See more »
(at around 5 mins) After Kristen wakes up in front of Freddy's house, you can see the children jumping rope and singing rhymes, yet none of the children's mouths are moving. However, it's possible that the singing was merely intended to create a surreal atmosphere on the soundtrack and not interpreted so strictly. See more »
Nightmare on Elm Street 3 (1987) was the third film in the Freddy Krueger series. This time around a hospital ward full of disturbed teenagers are the latest target for Freddy Krueger. Thanks in large part because the kids can't stop dreaming about the world's most famous serial killer/ child molester turned supernatural monster. Everyone should know by now that he likes to feed off the fear of the wee ones. Now with more people to add to his collection, Freddy decides to play ten little indians with the lot of them. That is until his old nemesis Nancy comes back into town to help the kids fight him off and end the nightmare. Will Nancy and the kids be able to defeat Freddy for good? Find out because this one's too good to pass up.
Not as complex as the last film but highly entertaining. This is the film that has Freddy morphing into his one-liner spewing act that has made him insanely popular. Fun stuff.
