A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)

In the third entry in the popular Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, not one, but two black characters survive (three if you consider a random nurse with one line), including a young Laurence Fishburne (who receives a much bigger billing on the DVD re-release than his role justifies) as an orderly in the psycho ward that Freddy Krueger has decided to haunt. More prominent is Ken Sagoes as belligerent patient Roland, whose threatening nature is undermined by the fact that he resembles Fred “Rerun” Berry. He lives long enough to be offed in the sequel.

“That’s right; Ike got a white bitch now.”
It takes a big man to shit-talk in suspenders.
