Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

1987 / d. Chuck Russel
DREAM WARRIORS is, without a doubt, a high-point in the franchise. Set in the psychiatric ward of a hospital, another group of troubled teens must band together to fight off old Fred, whose hunger for souls has become insatiable. Classic kills, good performances by the cast, and a bit more backstory on Krueger make this essential viewing for horror fans. Also, watch out for the appearance by the very young Lawrence Fishburne.
