Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. While the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
In part six of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, dream monster Freddy Krueger has finally killed all the children of his hometown, and seeks to escape its confines to hunt fresh prey. To this end, he recruits the aid of his (previously unmentioned) daughter. However, she discovers the demonic origin of her father's powers and meets Dad head-on in a final showdown (originally presented in 3-D). Written by

Peter Jackson's original screenplay for Freddy's Dead saw Freddy aging and growing weak within the dream world. The teens of Springwood would have drug-fuelled slumber parties for kicks, and enter the dream world to beat him up. See more »
(at around 47 mins) When Spencer is almost falling off the edge of the top stair (and the ledge in Freddy's video game), in his shadow you can clearly see the cord attached to his harness keeping him up. See more »
Look, do you have any, um... caffeine pills or coffee? Maybe some coke? I meant the soda.

I've always felt a sort of bond to the Elm Street movies as a child. As most children my age were cuddling up to Glo-Worms or Teddy Rukspin, I was dreaming of Freddy Krueger. Now don't get me wrong, I'm perfectly sane.. but I just grew up watching these movies in the order they were released. As an 80's child, all of these movies factored into the nostalgia I have within me now. And my memories can sometimes be resurrected when I watch these films. As great as this movie is, in it's own right. It's also a bit sad for me to watch. Because this is the LAST Nightmare of Elm Street movie. And the last of it's kind in the 80's horror genre. No more rad teens and no more 80's claymation demons. Most people would say to get a grip... but look at the modern day horror films. They are terrible in comparison. Most would say we've moved up in technology, but I'd say we've moved down. They arn't even fun to watch anymore.
If you totally agree with me, and are huge into nostalgia with the 80's. Watch this entire series, and you will not regret it. Some of the finest pieces of cinema history ever.
And this film, although it brings a tear to my eye, because a hero is finally layed to rest. These movies will always survive, in my heart.
