A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 3 Dream Warriors (1987)

[Note: Palace Pictures, the film's UK distributor, called me in to create some special publicity on this second sequel for the movie's regional release. This involved me doing an exclusive interview with actor Robert Englund, who played the iconic Freddy Krueger, which was then distributed to local newspapers across the country.

A puzzling series of deaths is hitting the town of Springwood. At the same time the town's teenagers are suffering terrifying nightmares. Because her behaviour has become increasingly erratic, Kristen has been admitted to the Western Psychiatric Hospital where six other teenagers are under special observation by Dr. Goldman, perplexed by their overwhelming fear of what seems to be a shared nightmare experience. Everything changes when Dr. Nancy Thompson joins the staff. A specialist in dream disorders, she knows what the other doctors don't—that the kids are being tormented by the spirit of Freddy Krueger, a child-murderer who was burnt alive by a vigilante mob several years ago and is now wreaking a grisly revenge on the children of those who killed him. She knows because years before Nancy was the only one of a group to survive Freddy's murderous nocturnal attacks. Nancy has been using an experimental dream-inhibiting drug called Hypnocill to keep her nightmares at bay and proposes using it on the teenage patients. But Dr. Goldman isn't sure about, this until he too realises there is a psychotic maniac haunting the shock corridors of the teenager's dream-induced psyches as one by one they start to die—murdered by Freddy preying on their darkest, deepest fears. As Goldman tries to prise the whereabouts of Freddy's remains from Nancy's father in order to bury them on consecrated ground. Nancy joins Kristen and the remaining patients for a shared dream last ditch attempt at exorcising the demonic spirit from their collective unconsciousness. But even Nancy is unprepared for the chilling terror ahead as she faces the evil dreamboat's most shocking nightmare . . .
