    If you get past the soft-core gore, Freddy's Nightmares can be a welcome respite from the celebration of middle-class morality everywhere on network television. [4 Nov 1988]

    Freddy, the series, is for the mature mind. Not the 9-year-old mind, but the 11-year-old mind. ... It's not funny, but ghastly, the sickest, most violent, blood-spurting TV imaginable. [6 Oct 1988]

    A bloody bore. ... Even by the relaxed standards of horror movies, "Freddy" is a sloppy, simplistic, amateurish, abysmally acted, incompetently written production that would be more at home on a cable-access channel than in national syndication. [8 Oct 1988]
