A Nightmare on Elm Street part 6: Freddy's Dead
release year:1991 genre:horror viewing setting:home DVD, 10/20/99 what I expected:not much what I got:not much
synopsis:Freddy reappears thanks to a blood relative that nobody knew about, his unknown child.
impressions:They'd run out of new ideas for this series after part 1, so they've been recycling ever since. This time, they tried a new tactic: 3D. Unfortunately, we didn't have any 3D glasses handy, so the movie sucked. We're sure that if we'd had those glasses, there would have been Oscar potential here.
acting:For a change, Robert Englund didn't ham it up too much. Everyone else turned in mediocre performances at best.
the good:When the credits finally rolled.
the bad:Complete lack of plot, quiet-to-loud sound effects, lack of nudity - all JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER ONES!
most entertaining moment:Old gomer doing circles in his wheelchair.
final word:This movie was a complete and utter waste of time.
