Crazy Credits

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 »

hilarious
22 January 2008 | by seanclark-2See all my reviews

Yes this is a bad movie for the horror generation but it was more like a comedy spoof to me. I saw for this movie for gender part comedy, damn right it is. It has a bunch of cheap but funny one liners so thats why i'm not taking this movie seriously.

We've saved the best for last, yeah that defiantly false advertising. I mean come on, the last 2 were awful you know this one's gonna be bad. The first one was a masterpiece and then by part 3 or 4 they were turned into comedies and Freddy's Dead is by far the funniest of them all.

So this is my review of Freddy's Dead a cheesy yet funny movie and that is why i'm giving it a 5/10
