It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of slasher films, and here I've tried to compile a list of…
Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare
They saved the best for last.
Just when you thought it was safe to sleep, Freddy Krueger returns in this sixth installment of the Nightmare on Elm Street films, as psychologist Maggie Burroughs, tormented by recurring nightmares, meets a patient with the same horrific dreams. Their quest for answers leads to a certain house on Elm Street -- where the nightmares become reality.
So we reach the final installment of A Nightmare on Elm Street.
What a mind meltingly awful way to go out too!!
Now I remember back in the mists of time, my newly teenaged mind enjoyed this mostly because I was in love with Maggie and it was in 3D!! (or Freddy-Vision as they called it). By the time we rented the video it had only 1 pair of glasses still inside the case.
Obviously this meant my brother missed out and I wore them.
Then on the subsequent 3 rewatches before we returned it to the shop...he still missed out as I wore them again. Sucks to be the youngest!!
These days it is in 2D and you remember…
You can't scare me anymore.
The seeds of disaster first popped up in possibly the franchise's best sequel in Part 3: Dream Warriors. With each subsequent film the dream sequences became sillier while the one liners became lamer. As a fan you could see the derailment coming as each sequel seemed to speed even faster towards it. Freddy's Dead is the culmination of that as we finally get the complete train wreck that everyone could see coming, but no one seemed to be able to avoid.
Rachel Talalay makes her directorial debut here, and I almost feel bad saying anything bad about her as she's worked on every single Nightmare on Elm Street film since…
When the kid fell down the hill at the very beginning, I had high hopes for this film. It was like that scene from HOT ROD but completely unaware of how ridiculous it looked. I laughed until I cried. And then the rest of the movie happened and I cried some more. Out of anger. And embarrassment. And sadness. And wut.
I didn't review the other two installments, because I would've been saying the same thing over and over again. This installment is my FUCKING nightmare. Shittiest plot, shitty characters, shitty effects, that goddamn 3D, just everything. This was just one film too many.
The Final Nightmare takes place in the evil future of 2001... which weirdly enough looks like the 90's.
Freddy wants his daughter this time. It's not actually clear why he wants her. First it appears that he wants her to bring other people to him, but then he wants revenge on her. It's highly confusing.
Another weird thing is that Maggie (Freddy's child), had a son. John Doe is found wandering around not able to remember his own name, or where he came from. Turns out he's the son of Maggie.. but for some reason, Maggie doesn't recognize him... and doesn't even appear to know that she has a son... Nor does she seem to be confused about this when…
I take back everything I've ever said about Part 2: Freddy's Revenge being the worst of this series. Why? Oh I don't know. Maybe it's because I just watched Freddy Kruger play video games for twenty minutes.
What the frig was this?! Easily the worst movie I've seen in quite sometime. Awful acting, storyline, effects. I could go on, but I'd rather forget all about it. :(
Sweet Jesus the final act of this one is bad - and that's a shame because up until then it's just as good as any of the other sequels…
I didn't like this one at all. I will actually go on record as saying that I feel like this is the worst Nightmare film (other than perhaps the remake). I will also say that in all of the big 80's horror icon movie series (Jason, Michael Myers, Freddy, Pinhead, Chucky, etc.) this is one of my least favorite entries. It may not be the worst of all those films, no, but it is among the worst. I didn't even like it when I was a kid.
This is straight up Looney Tunes silliness. No one here took the concept remotely seriously, and it shows. I like the character of Freddy when he is more menacing, not when he is…
This film does have a few rather imaginative dream/death sequences but suffers from a poor script, some poor performances, a mixed bag of special effects and there are just too many parts where it gets completely ludicrous.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The many, many potentially worthwhile elements of this film - when taken together - add up to an astonishing miscalculation of what it is about this franchise - and about the character of Freddy Kreuger - that people find appealing.
To wit, we have our characters implementing the exact same method to catch and kill Freddy Kreuger that Nancy employs in the first film. We have THE most annoying, tone-deaf death sequences of the entire series. A problem made all the more frustrating given how visually inventive Talalay is throughout the film, only to be hampered at every turn by an undercooked script and an impossibly cartoonish tone that ultimately renders the film little more than a live-action cartoon. And,…
Just as unwatchable as 'Dream Child', but for reasons related to it resorting to a hackneyed slapstick comedy approach in hopes of reigniting the series. The worst of all the 'Nightmare' sequels.
Debería revisar la segunda parte, pero me atrevería a decir que es la peor de la saga.
Remember when Freddy was scary and we all got scared to go to sleepy but don't worry about that now because Freddy in this movie likes to play video games and shout out funny stupid Jokes and acting like a jack-ass.
Hmm... what to say about this film. Its a total mess. The comedic elements kind of work but then it takes a totally dark and disturbing turn going into Freddy's life and memories. Weirdly, its a fitting end to the original series chronology even if it in no way can be classified as a good film.
