There three women who have several conversations but all they talk about the villain of the movie, who is a man.

Actually, movie passes all criteria. After Tina's death, Nancy talks with her mother (Marge) about going to school. They also have conversations during bathtub sequence and after Fred Krueger is defeated, neither of which involves talking about men.

Nancy and Marge also talk about Nancy's lack of sleep. Very indirectly, it's about Krueger, but men aren't mentioned in the conversation.

There are several conversations between Nancy and her mother Marge about Nancy's lack of sleep with no mention of Krueger or any other man. In addition, there are some other conversations between Nancy and Marge about Nancy going to school, falling off the floor, and asking the key to the door. This movie definitely passes all 3 tests.
