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.
Wow, I never realized that Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare was so universally hated!! I think after The Dream Master and The Dream Child, I welcomed The Final Nightmare with open arms.
I don't know if you can say I'm biased but I do have a bit of a crush on, director, Rachel Talalay. I love that she worked her way up through the entire NOES series until she was finally in the director's chair, herself. Her love for the series shines in the final film all the way through to the end credits (which are accompanied with clips from all six films).
Taking inspiration from the work she did with John Waters on Cry Baby, the casting of a…
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's "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare" deserves points for attempting to shake up the formula of the multi-chaptered horror series. While it is not completely successful, this sixth entry in the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" series adds lore and grownups to the equation that typically finds teens stalked by the finger-knived killer with the knack for one-liners. It also expands the series' mythos; however, the film can not completely get away from what became stale two films ago. Still, it is a watchable and occasionally engrossing horror sequel.
Taking place in a future where Springwood, Ohio, the city where Elm Street claimed its first victim, is devoid of children, the film supplies the usual teen-stalkings and dream logic…
Hmm. Great graphics.
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…

I think I'm starting to get Day-Nightmares, and not the good kind!
Freddy is now 'finally' a comedy actor.
Every Death is marked with a witty Arnie-One-Liner!
Almost trough the Dream-Slicer-Anthology and his Mazes, last one to go!
It's starting to hurt my Brain!
Completely insane. At times approaching near Troll 2 levels. Plus side, I (mostly) had fun and laughed a lot.
I was 8 years old when I first saw this movie and it scared the shit out of me!
Una gran decadencia, para una gran franquicia. De no ser que a estas alturas los filmes de Elm street son todos unos clásicos, no calificaría con ninguna estrella a esta cinta. Quizá lo unico interesante de este filme es la forma en como van integrando la vida de Freddy. Es enriqueciendor de cierta manera que este personaje se vuelve completo al desarrollar una tridimensionalidad en su historia.
Stop putting the word final in franchise films subtitles.
Goddamn it. This is an absolutely fascinating film in concept, that just completely and totally fails in execution.
First of all, who thought this was a good idea? Totally outrageous and over the top, this goofy bunch of garbage was totally nuts but viciously entertaining at the same time.
P.S - They didn't save the best for last.
quizás la peor de todas? no sé exactamente qué quisieron hacer aquí. de pronto se siente más como un reboot que una secuela, lo cual no es necesariamente malo... solo que lo hicieron muy mal. creo además que aquí freddy se asumió como 100% chistoso. era chévere que en las anteriores era una mezcla entre malo/chistoso pero aquí solo es tonto.
