Little would I know, that this franchise could actually go downhill after Part 5…
Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare is nearly unwatchable. Events move so quickly without decent, vital explanation that you’re constantly transformed in utter turmoil of what is occurring. There are so many sequences in which the actors/actresses actually look like they’re trying not to laugh because of how hilariously goofy some of the scenarios are. Character motivations go without say, and it’s devastatingly obnoxious. The special effects are worse than TV show effects, which is pitiful considering this was allegedly supposed to be the conclusion to Freddy’s tale, so you think the filmmakers would at least put a bit more effort into the visuals of this flick. The kills this time around are absolute jokes and had me belly-laughing to death; the humor seems to work much better than the terror in this movie in an unintentional way, I’m sure. I’m not joking when I say this, but this movie legitimately felt like I was watching some sick, twisted Loony Tunes episode (that is, if the Loony Tunes wasn’t good and wasn’t entertaining). It’s that frivolous! The Final Nightmare is atrocity on a whole other level and it’s honestly one of the worst horror movies I’ve ever seen. Do yourself a favor and stray away from this…Nightmare. Sorry, had to do it. 😉 (Verdict: F)
But seriously, f*** this movie! I hate myself so much for forcing myself into watching this. Even the most hardcore of the Nightmare fans shouldn’t have to suffer through any of this bulls***.
I swear, when we first got introduced to Lezlie Deane’s character I thought she was Jodie Foster. Then when it dawned on me it wasn’t her, I got kinda bitter… ;(
Freddy Krueger’s new backstory also makes little to no sense. It erases roughly everything we’ve learned about him from the previous movies. So, f*** this movie again for that.
And what’s up with all these kids’ obsession with learning Martial Arts in this franchise? Is there some secret Martial Arts lore that I haven’t been exposed to yet that’s apart of the Nightmare sequels?
This movie says “Daddy” more than a Fifty Shades novel. And that’s just…too much…
Two Words, Again: Johnny Depp
