Freddy dies, and takes the 80's with him...
17 November 2004 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

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.

9/10.
