Phillip Anderson was a character from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. He is the first victim in the Dream Warriors killing spree to die. In 1968, his parents along with other parents, killed Freddy.

Dream Warriors Edit

Phillip was a patient of the Westin Hills Asylum. He was placed in the hospital for being suicidal, but in truth, was being hunted by Freddy Krueger in his dreams. Phillip was nicknamed "The Walker" for his infamous sleepwalking. Phillip created marionettes using various materials. While sleeping, one of the dolls morphed into Freddy, went to the foot of his bed and grew full size.

Death Edit

One of the dolls Phillip created, turned into Freddy. Freddy then used his glove to slice open Phillip's skin on his arms and legs to reveal his tendons, Freddy pulled them out to use them as strings and operated Phillip like a marionette. Freddy made Phillip walk to a window, and as the camera panned out, shows a giant Freddy above cutting the strings, making him fall to his death as Phillip's friends and fellow patients watched. His death traumatized the teens and was pinned as a suicide until Nancy Thompson persuaded their Doctor, Neil Gordon, that there was more happening behind the deaths. After killing him, Freddy absorbed his soul.
