Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)


Check out the all new Dream Warriors page on Set-Jetter.com!



For better or worse, this fan-favorite sequel set the precedent and formula for many sequels to come.   They got more things right than wrong for sure in this entry, and any time they bring Heather Langenkamp back in the mix, you can't go wrong.


First up is the Elm Street house.  This entry was the first Nightmare film I saw in the theatre and I remember being mesmerized by seeing the house on the big screen.   Little did I know how often I would get to visit it in real life...

The "Westin Hills Psychiatric Hospital" is the back of Royce Hall on the UCLA campus.  Some building renovations have occurred, but mostly looks the same...

I was able to first visit this particular location in 1988 while at UCLA for a special workshop...

As with the above, I visited this first in 1988, so here is a mix of old and new pics...

However when he looks up at Amanda Krueger, he is in a different spot, back to the front of the building....

And then back to the rear of the building again.  The door is now a window...

And the interior of the church. The gates are gone but everything else looks the same...
