He's Dead, yeah right!
26 August 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

My least favorite of the entire series. While not a total loss, you do come away feeling cheated. The redeeming qualities of this flick are: the continued exploration into Freddy's past. (HELLO NEW LINE - DO THE NIGHTMARE PREQUEL - IF YOU MAKE IT WE WILL COME!) This was one whacked joker. The 3D sequences were good, but the ending totally blew.

Pros: Opening Sequence -- Cons: Ending -- Bottom Line: Still better than alot of other horror crud 5/10!
