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. Arquette has stated it wasn't a pleasant experience for her, while Russell said he may have pushed her too hard. See more »
In the TV version, in the scene where the nurse seduces Joey, the nurse has a bra on instead of being topless. However, throughout the scene you can see shoulder shots that show she has no bra straps that they used from the theatrical version. It flips between bra and no bra throughout the scene. See more »
He wasn't strong enough, so he got wasted. That's all.
That's all? Is that what you think?
He couldn't hack it, so he got nailed. Period.
Oh, yeah. Big, tough bad-ass. How much long are you gonna last?
I'm gonna last longer than any of you.

All the grips are nicknamed "Bob", except for the last, which is a variation on the name. See more »
This part is more entertaining that the original. I always watch slasher movies only for entertainment, I don't care much about a dialogs (Psycho would be an exception, the dialogs was the best thing in it) or acting, all I want to see is some entertaining, sometimes funny looking graphic murder scenes and this movie has it. My favorite was TV room scene. I also find this movie being really creepy sometimes, what is not usual for slasher films, like that scene where Freddy made one of the kids fall from a window, the whole scene was kinda creepy. The plot was great, I liked the idea that this movie is set on mental hospital, that made this movie even more creepy.
