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

John Doe was supposed to be Jacob from the previous film. It was made vague when they couldn't secure the return of Lisa Wilcox. In earlier versions of the script, Freddy absorbed the entire town of Springwood into the Dream World before moving onto the next town, with the Dream Police chasing after him. See more »
(at around 34 mins) During Carlos's nightmare sequence, Freddy cuts off Carlos's right ear. The ear reappears and disappears in subsequent shots. Furthermore, when Carlos gets his ear back, he puts it on his left side. 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 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 »
When originally shown in theaters the final sequence was shown in 3-D. When released to VHS the finale was shown in standard format. The only way to view the 3-D sequence prior to DVD was the laserdisc version which showed the entire film in standard format; the final chapter of the disc (after the movie) was the 3-D version of the finale.

FREDDY'S PREMISE IS DEAD IN THIS NIGHTMARE OF A MOVIE
You may think I'm exaggerating. But I'm not. FREDDY'S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE is by far the worst in the series. Its am big fan of the Freddy movies and this finale to the saga is just plain insulting. I might even call it one of the worst movies not only of 1991, but in cinematic history. It's a mess beyond wildest proportions. The look of the movie is just unsightly. It's acne. It looks like the work of a really low budget student filmmaker. The cinematography is ugly, the whole production design is a junkyard. The plot of the movie is retarded. The characters in the movie have no color and we have no sympathy for them. There just dumb teenage stereotypes. Freddy isn't much of a villain in this movie. His murder sequences are played for laughs, but they aren't funny. We get the odd feeling that Freddy is aging and that he can't be too evil and domineering or else he might get a bad back. He's a wuss. And the special effects. There aren't many in this movie. It's like the director said " OH! WE DONT NEED A SPECIAL EFFECTS TEAM! LET'S JUST MAKE THE LAST TEN MINUTES OF THE MOVIE IN 3-D TO COMPENSATE! " The Freddy-Vision 3-D sequence is laughably bad. I found the Fox TV MOVIE REVENGE OF THE NERDS: NERDS IN LOVE's 3-D sequence more visually stunning. When the main character first puts on the special 3-D glasses that will enable her to enter Freddy's brain, she begins to see everything in 3-D and puts her hand into her face with amazement. Is it just me, but even without her glasses on she'd able to see things around her in the third dimension anyway. OH MY GOD! We're suppose to believe the main character is entering Freddy's thoughts. There is a scene in the 3-D sequence where the Lisa Zane character has to break a circuit in Freddy's head to get into a door...Since when did anyone have electrical fuse box sitting in their brain. it's just gets suckier and suckier..it's depressing. The finale in FREDDY's DEAD when Freddy actually dies is the most disappointing, insultingly dumb ending you'll ever see! He dies in a basement of a youth shelter and he explodes from a stupid pipe bomb. HOW CHEESY IS THAT??!!! I CAN'T GO ON HOW MUCH I HATED THIS MOVIE! IT'S GETTING ME SO MAD..I just feel like strangling the head of New Line Cinema for taking 90 precious minutes out of my life that I will never get back.
