Picking up where the original Nightmare left off, Nancy has grown up and become a psychiatrist specializing in dream therapy. She meets a group of children at a local hospital facing Freddy Krueger, the same demon she once encountered in her sleep. One of them is Kristen, who has the power to draw other people into her dreams. Working with a male doctor assigned to the case, Nancy helps the kids realize their special abilities within the nightmare world. When Freddy captures one of her charges, she leads a rescue attempt into Krueger’s domain, in hopes of putting his spirit to rest once and for all. —IMDb

This used to be my favorite in the series. First watched in 2004 after Parts 1, 2 and 7. It used the one-by-one quality of slasher films and brought back Nancy. What more could I ask for? Now however, I see how much more dated the Elm Street series is. On its own, Dream Warriors is a fun time-waster, but can be dull and obvious. The cast is strong. Though Freddy's mythos is expanded the atmosphere is greatly reduced.
