Rating: 3.5/5 -- The film's dream sequences are ingenious, and they feature some remarkable nightmare images and special effects.

While it's better than its predecessor, it's still not quite up to its inspiration. Full Review

...A cannily conceived follow-up in the hit series....The legion of special effects experts working here more than deliver their goods...

Product Description:

The third installment in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series. In a medical facility, seven teenagers who have constant nightmares about child murderer Freddy Krueger undergo monitoring for sleep disorders. But nothing that anyone does seems to help them -- until Nancy Thompson, the heroine of the first movie, joins the medical staff. She suggests that they try a new drug, which inhibits dreaming, on the youngsters. The gullible doctor-in-charge opposes this treatment, forcing Nancy to fight both him and a suspicious nurse in order to save the teens. Meanwhile, Freddy gleefully unleashes one horror-filled image after another to traumatize the patients ... till they fear that this is one nightmare they'll never wake up from again.

Plot Synopsis:

The third installment featuring the fiendish monster Freddy Krueger. This time Freddy terrorizes a group of Elm street kids confined to a mental hospital for sleep disorders and suicide attempts. Naturally Freddy's presence isn't what the doctor ordered.
