Dream Warriors is the third installment in the Nightmare On Elm Street series. This movie was directed by Chuck Russell and it stars Heather Langenkamp, Patricia Arquette, Laurence Fishburne, John Saxon and of course, Robert Englund.

This movie begins with a young teenager called Kristen Parker(Arquette) who is making a house from paper mache.  It is an old run down house.She doesn't want to fall asleep because she is having nightmares about a man who is going to kill her in the old house. She awakens and goes into the bathroom where Freddy is waiting for her and he slits her wrists. Her mother comes in and thinks that she has tried to kill herself so she is committed to a psychiatric hospital with other teens who seem to have similar problems. We discover that more teens are killing themselves and nobody can explain why. Dr. Neil Gordon(Craig Wasson) is working with the kids and he welcomes a new colleague called Nancy Thompson(Langenkamp) who was terrorized by Freddy in the first movie. Nancy forms a friendship with Kristen.

Max is an ordely working in the hosptial and he is played by Laurence Fishburne. He gets along with the kids.
Nancy looks into Kristen's life and she talks to her mother about the nightmares. Her mother doesn't seem too worried about her daughter.Kristen still has nightmares and she can pull people into her dreams. She calls Nancy for help and Nancy is brought into Kristen's nightmare where Freddy is lurking.Nancy tells Kristen about her own experiences and she realises that all the kids are dreaming of Freddy.Freddy gets closer and the kids begin to die in ways which look like suicide.Nancy wants Dr. Gordon to give them an experimental drug so that they won't have nightmares. Nancy takes it and she is still alive. Dr Gordon agrees. He is devastated when another kid dies. He sees a nun who seems to be following him and he talks to her. She warns him about an evil spirit. 

We disover that the kids who are dying are the sons and daughters of the people who burned Freddy to death and this is his revenge.So, the nun tells Dr. Gordon that the only way he will get rid of Freddy is to find his remains and bury them on hallowed ground. Nancy leads the doc to her dad played by John Saxon and  he leads the doc to the remains, but not before Freddy finds him...The others are with Nancy and she tells them that they have to be hynotised and fall asleep and they can all gang up on Freddy and destroy him.
Kristen has been locked in a padded cell and they all need to help her before she falls asleep and is helpless..
So, they find Kristen and Freddy finds them, but luckily Dr Gordon buries the remains and Freddy is destroyed but not before he kills Nancy. Dr. Gordon meets the nun again and she reveals that she is Freddy's mother. The movie ends with Dr Gordon sleeping with a toy house beside him. All seems fine until a light comes on inside it! Looks like Freddy is back!!!!

I enjoyed this movie. It was fun and I thought that it was entertaining. I am going to give it a 7/10 because it kept me watching the whole way through which is more than I can say for a lot of recent movies I have seen.....
