The "Nightmare" series is one of my favorites.
James C. Ward
I know I said that I didn't like this movie being comedy, but this scene was just SO funny!

I think most would agree that this particular Freddy movie is the goofiest of them all. It isn't even very scary, but still manages to be creepy. Even though it's the most goofy Freddy movie, does that mean it's not entertaining? Of course not! In fact, I think this is the most entertaining one in the series; not the best, but the most fun to watch. Freddy's back and is unleashing a bloody trail of dead teens in "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare."
A child psychologist is trying to help a group of troubled teens. But things get out of control when a John Doe enters her life, who turns out to be the last survivor of Elm Street. She finds out that the two of them have something in common; nightmares. John learns that the reason why Freddy has kept him alive so long is because he has a kid and is trying to get to him/her (there's even a possibility that John himself is Freddy's son). Whoever his child may be, the child is the key for Freddy to explore a new playground, enabling him to unleash his murderous wishes all over again.
Like I said, this isn't a very scary Freddy movie. It even resembles a comedy most of the time. But I still think it's a great flick. It's the most enjoyable of the series, but it isn't the best. Robert Englund still has it down as being Freddy Krueger. No way in heck would anybody else be able to tackle down the role as he has. And it's neat to see him have more lines in this one. As mean as he is, he can be pretty funny.
As enjoyable as the movie is, it does have a tendency to get overly goofy. I think they could've made it a little more scarier. The other ones before might've been funny, but they were also scary, too. That's the only real flaw of the movie, as it's one you shouldn't take very seriously.

My word! I'll start off with the story. Basically Freddy has killed all the teenagers of Springwood, so he needs a new stomping ground. We then meet Freddy's previously un-heard of daughter, who works in a home for wayward teenagers. I think you know what happens. He kills some kids and then his daughter kills him. That's it!
Rachel Talalay takes the job of directing this pathetic attempt to kill off one of the biggest horror icons ever. Does she do a good job? Well, I'm sure my star rating say's it all.
The acting is awful. Not by everyone, mind you. The women who plays his daughter does an alright job and Yaphet Kotto, the guy who was in the first Alien film, is the only character who you actually quite like.
Let's talk about Freddy now. Well, what can I say? Mrs. Talalay actually made me not like him... I mean it! Okay, his wise-cracking antics were a bit O.T.T. from number 3 onwards, but this one really got on my nerves. In this one we had Freddy spouting lines like "Great graphics".
Next I'll talk about the deaths. Oh my god! What happened here? After viewing the deaths in this film, I'm not sure whether it was a comedy or what. They were atrocious! Only one was remotely 'Freddyish' (the one with the deaf kid).
Also, from a film that sets out to kill a big name, it does it in rubbish fashion. What an imagination the film makers had. 'Let's kill Freddy off by literally blowing him up!' I could have come up with a better death than that on the toilet! And also the 3-D...it looked absolutely dreadful. No ILM, put it that way.
I'm sorry, but Rachel Talalay should be ashamed of herself, she really should.

If ever there was an indicator that the 'Nightmare' franchise had run outta steam, 'Freddy's Dead' was it. The storyline was a bit too surreal and muddled, and wasn't always easy to follow. Freddy's array of "witty" one-liners were so corny and dated (e.g. references to those "Your brain on drugs" commercials and the original 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System), I found myself groaning at every other word that came outta his mouth. The Freddy-kills here were so over-the-top and cartoonish, I was half-expecting the Acme Co. to be prominently shown in the closing credits (sadly, Freddy couldn't find it within himself to kill off the characters played by Roseanne and Tom Arnold). And don't even get me started on the 3-D sequence (shown in 2-D on this platter, (un)fortunately), which featured visual effects that would've looked high-tech and halfway decent, had this movie been made about a decade earlier. And, like all the other 'Nightmare' flicks before this, 'Freddy's Dead' wasn't all that scary to me. I laughed, I cried, I kissed four bucks of DVD rental money goodbye. But fear and fright were nowhere to be found.

Despite the silliness of Freddy's kills, I found them rather entertaining, and the main reason why I decided to give this a view. Also, remember the part when that homie was just laying on the couch smoking a joint, and he sees that Carlos dude in the t.v. set telling him to lay off it? I also liked checking out Freddy's back story, even though the parts of his past that they show are rather brief, this to me is a funny stoner movie. Now if the screenwriters only had him take out Roseanne and Tom Arnold's characters in a really gruesome fashion, this bad-boy would of earned an extra * from me.
