By the time his third film rolled around, Freddy Krueger was the toast of Hollywood. Fancy cars, beautiful women, wild parties -- the works. But rather than rest on his laurels, the celebrated slashmaster unleashed the masterpiece of his career. The artistic and financial success of DREAM WARRIORS catapulted high school homicide to the top of the sub-studio heap, creating a template for countless imitators and, most unfortunately, Wes Craven's NEW NIGHTMARE. But none of those depressors can tarnish this powerblast of 1980s mayhem, featuring the Bastard Son Of A Hundred Maniacs taking on a bevy of mentally ill teenagers who nocturnally transform into wizards, marionettes, and punk rock knifewielders. Genre superhuman John Saxon co-stars in the most action-packed rampager of the series. Dear Freddy Krueger: Before your shitty, pathetic decline in the 1990s, you inspired a nation of 12-year-old boys to idolize a horribly burned child-rapist. Tonight, we honor you once more. (Zack Carlson/Joseph A. Ziemba)
