I frickin' love Dream Warriors. It's probably my favourite. But as with any horror/slasher sequel, it's got a different tone to the others. The first one is scarier as Freddie is 'new' and unknown. As sequels carry on, other characters come and go while he becomes the familiar constant. You end up almost on Freddie's side.
Except the bit where he chases her down the alley and his arms are about 6 feet long. That's fucking hilarious.
I'd agree with that. I also love the moment when he's chasing someone through a room full of metal pipes; nice and claustrophobic.

I like 'New Nightmare', a terrifically po-mo precursor to 'Scream'.
I like the ideas in New Nightmare, just not the execution. I think the fact that I saw Scream first probably didn't help. It would have been interesting if they had done it as the third film in the series, though, since it wouldn't have been as weighed down as it eventually was; I think it's the lack of baggage is part of what made Scream so good.

Is 'Nightmare....3' the one where Freddie possess the telly hung from the roof of the hotel ward and then pulls the lass head first into the screen?
And the police think it's suicide?
Is it that one?
Yeah, it's the one where he says ''This is it, Jennifer: your big break in TV. Welcome to prime time, bitch!'' right beforehand.
