An admitted guilty pleasure and one that delivers the corn ball gags by the dozens.

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.

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.

Fun, but not the best way for Freddy to crumble

Undoubtedly the nadir of the Elm Street series...

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.

One of the weaker entries.

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.

The Final Nightmare marks an end to Freddy's wisecracking ways. This surrealistic nightmare fits the style perfectly, but sometimes lacks in imagination.

| Original Score: 2/4

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

Even the much-heralded 3-D finale is murky and unimaginative.
