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

This is the first film in the franchise that does not include the little jump rope girls singing Freddy's rhyme. See more »
(at around 1h 7 mins) When Freddy is talking to Doc and cutting off his fingers, a white tube held between middle and ring fingers spurting green liquid is visible (both from Freddy's perspective and when the shot faces Freddy). See more »
Now he's gonna try and trick you just like he tricked Tracy. He'll try and use your eyes to fool you. You'll use these.
[shows her 3D glasses]
Get the hell outta here.
You want to live? These mean nothing here, but in a dream, they can be anything you want. He got inside your head. You get inside of his.
That's my job, isn't it?
Be careful. He's good at finding out what hurts the most.
That's why you gotta take me with you.
I can't. It's gotta be me and him. All right, Doc. Put me in.

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 dead, jason goes to hell, mikey gets a razor in his candy?
this is the ultimate WTF? film. the beginning alone, with the map, and the computer stuff across the country, WTF?!? no returning characters, WTF? freddy riding a broomstick from wizard of oz, WTF?
some redeeming qualities: i don't like to know too much in horror stories, it's part of what makes them spooky, we learn too much of freddy here, though the flashbacks are well done, like the razor/pain thing
freddy has a daughter and that's why he went nuts, but we haven't heard of it until now, WTF? tom and rosey, WTF? that town is supposed to be where the last 5 films took place? WTF? demon ghost skulls? WTF? 3D (and i still have my 3D glasses from the theater), WTF? cheap excuses to amaze us in 3D??? WTF???
but... alas, it is fun to watch, and ultimately degrades the original and cheapens the franchise, but it is entertaining, a true guilty pleasure flick... though, why does it kill him here and not when nancy does it???
series rating: 2/10 guilty pleasure rating: 7/10
