Dream Warriors

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.

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.


When Freddy revealed his power and rips open his sweater saying that the souls of his victims give him power and their are four faces on his chest, one of them being Phillip, the other 3 being Jennifer Caulfield, Will Stanton, and Taryn White. In The Dream Master, when Alice Johnson wins a fight against Freddy, his soul and the souls of other victims were released.
