    Widely considered the best Freddy movie and for good reason. A good balance of scary and funny, packed with a variety of special effects (giant snake Freddy being my favorite). Of course the acting sucks, except for Englund's fun performance. And Patricia Arquette is quite a cutie.

    But of course the best part of this movie is the song "Dream Warriors" by Dokken. Love it!

    Ignore the goofy title and what you have here is a surprisingly entertaining and imaginative horror sequel that quickly gets rid of the memories of the mediocre second film, delivering a movie that's just a whole lot more fun.

    Sure, the slippy logic of the group dreaming is absurd at best, but when this leads to so many gorgeously-designed dream sequences, complete with elaborately grotesque visual effects which have dated insanely well in the 27 years since release, it's easy…

    Arguably the strongest sequel, Dream Warriors is extremely enjoyable with effects that hold up wonderfully over 25 years since its release.

    The narrative veers sharply back to the Nancy story (she's back) and the normal Freddy rules (he kills you in your sleep). It's a pretty nifty twist to have this take place in an insane asylum, surprisingly realistic. Despite the cooler and more varied death / dream sequences, this is still mostly a mess. Freddy gets called "the bastard son of 100 maniacs". And the goalposts of "how to kill Freddy" gets moved to "bury him in holy ground".

    "Welcome to prime time, bitch!" is the one everybody remembers, but I'm partial to the Dick Cavett/Zsa Zsa Gabor scene. The movie's damn good in most every respect, occasionally let down by cheesy moments and some of the goofier bits of score (80s-era synths will never sound like an orchestra, and shame on you for trying). Gotta agree with the consensus though, this is the best one since the original.

    Brief Thoughts: Ghostly nuns? Unburied bones? Consecrated ground? Since when was phantasmic boogeyman Freddy Krueger susceptible to such creaky, religious-themed story devices? This sort of plotting - more typical of a last-gasp Hammer Films Dracula pic - is worse than lazy - it’s comfortable. You want a sign of how toothless Freddy has become? Name another homicidal paedophile, fictitious or otherwise, that you’d affectionately refer to by their first name.

    As a screenplay, this film has Wes Craven’s fingerprints all…

    "Welcome to primetime, bitch!"
    "What's wrong Jeremy, getting tongue tied?"
    "What a rush"
    The moral of this story is everyone deserves a proper burial, even child murderers who only speak in puns.

    Film #22 of Halloween 2014.

    Undoubtedly my favourite movie of the franchise. This is when the murders begin to get REALLY creative and become totally nightmarish whilst managing to perfectly balance the humour and terror of the situations. Freddy in particular is at his finest here, owning every single scene he is in with some fantastic one liners that I still love to quote to this day. It's also always a pleasure to see Heather Lamgenkamp, who I have been…
