FREDDY'S PREMISE IS DEAD IN THIS NIGHTMARE OF A MOVIE
You may think I'm exaggerating. But I'm not. FREDDY'S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE is by far the worst in the series. Its am big fan of the Freddy movies and this finale to the saga is just plain insulting. I might even call it one of the worst movies not only of 1991, but in cinematic history. It's a mess beyond wildest proportions. The look of the movie is just unsightly. It's acne. It looks like the work of a really low budget student filmmaker. The cinematography is ugly, the whole production design is a junkyard. The plot of the movie is retarded. The characters in the movie have no color and we have no sympathy for them. There just dumb teenage stereotypes. Freddy isn't much of a villain in this movie. His murder sequences are played for laughs, but they aren't funny. We get the odd feeling that Freddy is aging and that he can't be too evil and domineering or else he might get a bad back. He's a wuss. And the special effects. There aren't many in this movie. It's like the director said " OH! WE DONT NEED A SPECIAL EFFECTS TEAM! LET'S JUST MAKE THE LAST TEN MINUTES OF THE MOVIE IN 3-D TO COMPENSATE! " The Freddy-Vision 3-D sequence is laughably bad. I found the Fox TV MOVIE REVENGE OF THE NERDS: NERDS IN LOVE's 3-D sequence more visually stunning. When the main character first puts on the special 3-D glasses that will enable her to enter Freddy's brain, she begins to see everything in 3-D and puts her hand into her face with amazement. Is it just me, but even without her glasses on she'd able to see things around her in the third dimension anyway. OH MY GOD! We're suppose to believe the main character is entering Freddy's thoughts. There is a scene in the 3-D sequence where the Lisa Zane character has to break a circuit in Freddy's head to get into a door...Since when did anyone have electrical fuse box sitting in their brain. it's just gets suckier and suckier..it's depressing. The finale in FREDDY's DEAD when Freddy actually dies is the most disappointing, insultingly dumb ending you'll ever see! He dies in a basement of a youth shelter and he explodes from a stupid pipe bomb. HOW CHEESY IS THAT??!!! I CAN'T GO ON HOW MUCH I HATED THIS MOVIE! IT'S GETTING ME SO MAD..I just feel like strangling the head of New Line Cinema for taking 90 precious minutes out of my life that I will never get back.
