Trivia

When released to home video the 3D sequence was shown in standard format, excluding the UK rental version. However, the Laserdisc version had the full 3D sequence along with the regular version. 2 pairs of 3D glasses were included with the disc. The glasses were similar to the ones given out in theaters, minus the adverts, adhesives and taglines. They were also printed on a thinner cardstock. This was the only way to view the 3D sequence prior to the DVD release in the US. See more »

Goofs

When Maggie grabs Freddy in the dream, she wraps her arms around his chest over both of Freddy's arms. In the next shot, Maggie's left arm is under Freddy's left arm. See more »

Crazy Credits

A text that appears before the opening credits reads: "Do you know the terror of he who falls asleep? To the toes he is very terrified, because the ground gives the way under him, and the dream begins..." -Friedrich Nietzsche- Then the text changes to: "Welcome to prime time, bitch" -Freddy Krueger- See more »

OK, I think this is Freddy's 6th death already
11 November 2003 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, the sixth installment of the Nightmare on Elm Street series and once again another bad sequel. I think this is tied up with the last sequel of the Dream Child. I was lucky enough to get the Nightmare on Elm Street series box DVD set for my birthday, so I got to see all the sequels. May I say that I'm just getting more and more disappointed though with these sequels, at least the past two, it just seems like Freddy lost his edge. It's almost like the writers were trying to give Freddy a soul and they're just destroying it instead of reinventing the story. This was a sequel that wasn't needed, sorry to Robert Englund, but this was very much below what Freddy Krueger represents.

Freddy is back, but he's got something we don't know about, a daughter. Maggie, she's not aware that he is her father, but soon she finds out what his dark secrets are and he wants her help. She has to do her best to resist his powers, but it's hard with all the good memories she has of her loving father. Ironic, isn't it? But Freddy isn't giving up without manipulating her into his ways.

Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare is also presented in 3-D, radical, huh? Note the sarcasm. This is one of the worst sequels, it's tied up with the fifth sequel of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, I'd rather watch the second Nightmare on Elm Street to be honest. This just had bad acting, stupid editing, and just over all a bad idea for a story. I didn't like the concept of it and it just ruined the whole idea of who Freddy Krueger really is, the death master of nightmares, not Father Knows Best.

2/10
