With a screenplay by series creator Wes Craven and then-unknown Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Walking Dead), it’s not surprising that the third installment of the Nightmare on Elm Street series is often considered one of the best. The film touches on subjects a little deeper than the usual raging hormones and teenage angst that slasher flicks tend to address, like mental illness, addiction and recovery, and the travesty that was the media’s portrayal of tabletop roleplaying games in the ’80s. But don’t worry: There are still plenty of raging hormones, and the substantially increased budget for this iteration of the series resulted in some set pieces and stylish killings that are hard to forget. Just remember: Don’t. Fall. Asleep.
