I join Kicking the Seat‘s Ian Simmons for a dreamy look back at A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, which turned 35 this year, and we dive headfirst into Chuck Russell’s novel horror fantasy, which finds a group of struggling teens squaring off against Freddy Krueger in a sleep clinic. More than three decades on, the film (co-written by future The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile director Frank Darabont) offers way more to think about than just imaginative nightmare sequences and the birth of “funny Freddy”! Watch as we reminisce about our early experiences with the series; examine the legacy of Wes Craven’s heady horror as funneled through the ultimate teen angst metaphor; and try to pinpoint what’s so unsettling about Patricia Arquette (making her big-screen debut)!
