"John Doe" comes to think he may be Freddy's son. As noted earlier, this film takes place 10 years in the future circa 1999. The NOES official website's time line notes that Freddy Krueger's death at the hands of the Springwood parents took place in 1968 (based on the fact that in 'The Dream Child', Freddy's mother is said to have died soon after Freddy's trial). This film notes that Freddy's child was taken away from him in 1966 (see the chalkboard scene at Springwood High School). Therefore, John Doe would have to be in his thirties to be Freddy's son - which he obviously was not. 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")
