Freddy's Dead - The Final Nightmare
The producers insisted that this sixth entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street series marked the last; no points for guessing that additional sequels followed. This time, homicidal wraith Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) decides to extend his reign of terror past Elm Street. His agent-on-earth is his own long-lost daughter Maggie (Lisa Zane, sister of Phantom star Billy Zane). Securing a job as a dream therapist for troubled teens, Maggie is able to "open up" the minds of her patients so that Freddy can exercise his usual bloody prerogative. In a garish, 3-D climax, Freddy himself… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sixth and final edition in the Nightmare on Elm Street feature series delivers enough violence, black humor and even a final reel in 3-D to hit paydirt with horror-starved audiences."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"So long, Freddy, it's been good to know you."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"Freddy Krueger's 3-D death is about as lame as the rest of this crummy flick, the sixth and supposedly last in the often imaginative but ultimately numbing Nightmare on Elm Street series."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"worst of the series"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"The absolute worst entry of the series."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Even the much-heralded 3-D finale is murky and unimaginative."
‑ , Time Out
"An admitted guilty pleasure and one that delivers the corn ball gags by the dozens."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"One of the weaker entries."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The Final Nightmare marks an end to Freddy's wisecracking ways. This surrealistic nightmare fits the style perfectly, but sometimes lacks in imagination."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Not the worst of the series, but far from the best -- and hardly the 'Final' anything."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The Elm Street films have always been a cut above the competition, so to speak, with their playfully malevolent dream sequences and their mocking, ever-resourceful villain."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Undoubtedly the nadir of the Elm Street series..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The one interesting idea -- what would a town be like if all the teenagers in it had been slaughtered in five movies? -- is thrown away with a few cheap jokes."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"It makes less sense than any preceding Nightmare film...although it's so out-and-out crazy that it's at least a little bit more entertaining than some of them"
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"A film that so conclusively promises to be the last entry in the popular Nightmare on Elm Street series that the title tries to prove it twice."
‑ Michael Brody, CinemaBlend.com
