Product Description

Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (DVD)

From the Back Cover

Just when you thought it was safe to go to sleep, Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) is back to haunt your dreams and freeze your blood!

Lisa Zane (Bad Influence) is a child psychologist tormented by recurring nightmares. But not until she meets a new patient with the same horrific dreams does her quest for answers lead to a certain house on Elm Street -- where an evil that defies the grave is about to be unleashed upon the world.

With Yaphet Kotto (TV's Homicide, Alien) and cameos by Roseanne, Tom Arnold, Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp, this chapter in the world's most terrifying dream saga is a fantastic voyage.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Every town has an Elm Street..." (4.5 stars) July 18, 2003
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Final Nightmare: Freddy's Finale! June 7, 2005
When 1989's "Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child" failed to live up to the box office standards set by its predecessors New Line Cinema decided to borrow a page from Paramount Pictures' "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" movie. Promising to put an end to Freddy Krueger's reign of terror over the dreams of Springwood's teens once and for all "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare" was released in 1991. Directed by "NOES" series veteran Rachel Talalay (a John Waters refugee) and featuring cameos by a slew of celebrities (Roseanne and then-husband Tom Arnold, Johnny Depp in his only 'other' "NOES" appearance besides the original film, Alice Cooper, etc.) "The Final Nightmare" could have been a decent ending to a horror movie series that had gotten progressively less scary and more ridiculous with every passing installment. Instead the powers-that-be at New Line chose to once again travel the well-worn path of comedic overkill that had robbed Freddy Krueger of his menacing aura in "NOES" movies 3-5. Though marginally better than the abominable creative abyss that is "The Dream Child" this sixth and last "NOES" movie is only marginally better than its predecessor.

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. He takes the last surviving teenager in Springwood out of his domain and into the real world, in order to recruit his daughter as part of a plan to escape the confines of Springwood, and continue his killing in the rest of the world. However, she discovers the demonic origin of her father's powers and meets Dad head-on in a final showdown.

1.0 out of 5 stars <- (4 out of 5 Stars!) Freddy's not quite Dead, yet! December 30, 2005
By Loco-E
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.

This was the worst in the franchise. It was stupid and wasn't in the very least creepy. It was more like a slapstick "horror" film. Read more
