5.0 out of 5 stars Son of a Hundred Maniacs..., 7 Oct. 2003
This review is from: A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors [DVD] (DVD)
I practically grew up on watching "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies. Been watching them ever since I was little. Freddy Krueger is my all-time favourite horror villain. "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" is probably my personal favourite in the series. It's got a great script, great concept, and it's entertaining as hell. Both chilling and funny, this is a movie to watch if you want a good time.
This particular "Nightmare on Elm Street" has a rather ingenious storyline; possibly the most creative in the series. The "survivors" of Elm Street are slowly falling victim to Krueger's violent rampage one by one (although the deaths are considered "suicides" by the doctors). Only a few remain alive in a psychiatric ward and they all have similar nightmares. They all dream of a man who is horribly scarred and wears a glove with razor blades for fingers. And they know that he is out to get them. However, these aren't your typical survivors. They have special powers and gifts in their dream world that makes them unique and powerful. These gifts and powers may be the only thing that can stop Freddy once and for all, before he murders each and every one of them.
This one was actually co-written by Wes Craven, the man behind the original "Nightmare on Elm Street." It really shows because this one isn't as funny as the later ones. It's more creepy and scary, too. The movie was very well-directed and written. The actors were great and each of them really made the movie work. And of course, you have to give credit to Robert Englund, who really shines as Freddy. There is no way anybody else could play the part. Englund practically made the role his own.
The DVD doesn't have much to offer, but it does look and sound great. No more having to deal with the mono VHS copy that was recorded in "extended play." The picture is crystal clear, and even a little TOO clear at parts. The new Dolby Digital mix is also really good. You do have the option to listen to it in mono, which is the original theatrical mix. Other than that, no eye-popping extras.
"A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" is a Freddy movie to remember. Not only is it scary and even funny at times, but it's also very creative and impressive. I'm a fan of all the Freddy flicks, but this one is probably my favourite of them all. This is something recommended for ALL horror-buffs. Then again, all of you horror-buffs have already seen it, now haven't you? Well, then to the rest of you... check it out when you can!
