Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
In part six of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, dream monster Freddy Krueger has finally killed all the children of his hometown, and seeks to escape its confines to hunt fresh prey. To this end, he recruits the aid of his (previously unmentioned) daughter. However, she discovers the demonic origin of her father's powers and meets Dad head-on in a final showdown (originally presented in 3-D).Written by

When shown theatrically, audience members were given one pair of red cardboard 3-D glasses with movie taglines printed on it. The inside arms had adhesives for attaching to standard glasses. An advertisement for House Party 2 (1991) was printed on the outside of one arm. See more »
(at around 44 mins) When Freddy is playing the video game he alternates between having one foot up on the edge of the table and both legs crossed in the middle of the table between shots. See more »
A text that appears before the opening credits reads: "Do you know the terror of he who falls asleep? To the toes he is terrified, Because the ground gives the way under him, And the dream begins..." -- Friedrich Nietzsche Then the text changes to: "Welcome to Prime Time, bitch." -- Freddy Krueger See more »
When originally shown in theaters the final sequence was shown in 3-D. When released to VHS the finale was shown in standard format. The only way to view the 3-D sequence prior to DVD was the laserdisc version which showed the entire film in standard format; the final chapter of the disc (after the movie) was the 3-D version of the finale.

A disgrace to what Wes Craven started and finished
This film is terrible. I really can't understand why they changed Krueger from a mass murdering scary figure to a Jerry Lewis clone. They should have given the role of Krueger to Robin Williams. At least he is good at comedy. That would be something I would pay to see. I have seen the first Nightmare about 50 times, I have seen Craven's last one maybe 5 times, the others are just a waste of time and they are not even worth one viewing. I can't tell you how much I despise the way that horror films have evolved. From all of the Fridays after the fourth, all the Nightmares after the first and before the last and all the Scream clones, they are mostly terrible. There have really only been perhaps 3 films in the 90's that scared me. One was Wes' New Nightmare and the two others are this summer's biggest surprises, that being The Blair Witch Project and The Sixth Sense. They are movies that scare, chill and make you jump in ways that this and every other Nightmare could only dream of. If you have a morbid curiosity of what else I think of this film, review A Nightmare On Elm Street, Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre along with the other two films that I mentioned. Then you will see that those films are the exact opposite of what this one if. And that is a scary thought. I just hope that horror films are on the rise again seeing as we now have names like Myrick, Sanchez and Shyalaman that have emerged onto the scene. Perhaps they can bring us back to what horror films used to stand for. We used to have scares and chills, now we have comedy in place of all that is a horror movie. If that is your thing then watch this one along with movies like Idle Hands. But if you are a purist, stay away from this one and go rent some classics. Thank the movie Gods for video.
To sum it up, in case you didn't get it, this is a disgrace to what Freddy originally stood for. This is a terrible horror movie.
