You're going out with a touch of class: a slam-bang finale in 3-D -- make that Freddyvision; a gaggle of one-liners directed at the final crop of victims and a few in-jokes; some wonderfully bizarre dream sequences; and the possibility that while Freddy may be gone, some of his progeny may live on (we can say no more).
Mr. Englund, playing the Halloween favorite whom audiences love to hate, now delivers lines like this with the broadness of a latter-day Jimmy Durante. But he sustains Freddy's peculiar charm even when appearing without ghastly makeup in scenes of Freddy's early years.
Действия разворачиваются после скорее сериала чем предыдущего фильма, убил Фред всех детей в Спринвуде и делать ему нечего, пока не приезжают туда подростки из другого города, и тут опять. Опять же напоминает больше комедию чем ужасы, но хочу заменить, уместные шутки. Оказывается у Крюгера был ребенок, и жил он как нормальный человек (почти), ибо нам показывают предысторию, вообщем загнобили пацана. На удивление заглянул Джон Депп, и теперь я его узнал. Больше знакомых лиц нет, да и как я и сказал до этого, много времени прошло с пред фильма, сериал который я не смотрел, мог что то прояснить.
"We're in Twin Peaks here," says the only surviving teenager in town. It's a lame attempt to create class by association. Unlike David Lynch's kinky series, the creators of Freddy's Dead couldn't care less about the movie's interchangeable characters. The actors are often hard to tell apart; some are just worse than others. [14 Sept 1991, p.C5]
A proverbial whimper of a finale, Freddy's Dead, the sixth in the series, feels like the product of people who have no vested interest in keeping their franchise alive...You notice almost immediately how underpopulated the movie feels--by ideas, by special effects, even by phobic young cast members waiting to fall asleep and be slaughtered.
I was pleasantly surprised with this sequel. I was expecting rubbish like the other sequels but I got… errr… something worth a watch. I would like to say that I got the impression that this version was cut by the studio to get the R-Rating that it has. The story is incoherent but it doesn't try to do anything unlike the other pathetic sequels in this series. The writing is good, the pace good, the direction good, the violence good and so on. There is nothing that makes this stand out except when comparing to A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985) through to A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989). Final judgement - strikingly good when you think that this is number six in the series.
Dude this movie is great, it’s the complete antithesis of the original Nightmare On Elm Street as in it’s just a straight up comedy. Technically it’s bad I know but it’s so funny man, so self aware I can do nothing but have the best time. A lot of people hate it and I can see why but I’d say give it a go (keeping in mind you're not gonna watch a horror film of course).
