Today’s movie is 1987’s “ANOES – Dream Warriors”.
- It’s one of the better sequels of the series, followed by “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master” and “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare”.
- Freddy, while showing some humor now, is quite fearful. Thankfully, in this sequel, he is able to be both funny and scary without sacrificing one for the other.
- “Welcome to prime time, bitch” and “Let’s get high” are still classic lines from this film.
- Speaking of the latter quote, seeing the heroin pastules as open, sucking mouths is hard-hitting and would’ve worked better than those “This is your brain on drugs” commercials.
- Patricia Arquette’s debut film and it showed a bit because she was a bit stiff. But, she was new to the game. I can’t fault her too much. She isn’t Roseanna, after all.
- Lawrence Fishbourne is in this one and he’s effective in his role.
- Considering our nation’s health crisis, having a nasty, long-tongued nurse on staff doesn’t help matters. Call the union!
- How about that Freddy snake sequence. I always think dirty thoughts with that scene. But, that’s just me. Right?
- Sad to see you go, Nancy. That’ll do, girl. That’ll do.
- “Nightmare on Elm Street 2” still bites.
Rent the film, along with the other great sequels and the original, and enjoy!
