Full of bluster and gimmickry. Does anyone involved even remember the original movie?

| Original Score: 2/5

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

Undoubtedly the nadir of the Elm Street series...

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

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.

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.

Not the worst of the series, but far from the best -- and hardly the 'Final' anything.

| Original Score: 2/5

Hardly a fitting capstone to one of the genre's more original notions, but after six tries, what should we expect? Something better than this tripe, surely.

The non-3-D special effects throughout the film are pretty good, but the level of acting, along with such technical aspects as lighting and editing, are awful.

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.
