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 »

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 »
Freddy Krueger (Robert Engund) brings the last survivor of Sprinwood to a big city. The police withdraw the teenager with amnesia from the streets and bring him to a shelter under the care of Maggie Burroughs (Lisa Zane). She finds a picture of her hometown Springwood in his few belongings and decides to take the John Doe (Shon Greenblatt) back to the town trying to recover his memory. During the travel to Springwood, she finds three others interns hidden in the van. When they reach Springwood, Maggie discovers that she was adopted by her mother and her father is Freddy Krueger.
"Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare" is the sixth part of this classic movie and is a very weak and disappointing sequel. The story is silly, with a dark humor that never works, despite the cameo of Johnny Depp. Further, it shows a total lack of imagination of the writer, and proves that the franchise is exhausted. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "A Hora do Pesadelo 6: Pesadelo Final A Morte de Freddy" ("The Hour of the Nightmare 6: Final Nightmare The Death of Freddy")
