A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: THE DREAM WARRIORS
(1987, d. Chuck Russell, w. Wes Craven, Frank Darabont, Bruce Wagner)

“It’s now many years after the events of the original “NOES”, and Freddy is once again on the rampage. This time he’s targeting a group of troubled teens in a mental hospital. All the teens suffer from terrible nightmares, so much so that they will do anything to avoid sleep. The adults, of course, are of no help whatsoever. Enter Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp), now all grown up and a doctor to boot. (Apparently her status as a mental patient ala exposition in the previous sequel was just bad rumors?) Nancy arrives at the hospital and begins to teach the kids how to defend themselves against Freddy.”

ONE-SENTENCE SUMMARY: “Made two years after Sholder’s sequel, “NOES 3″ is so much more polish and expensive-looking.”
