Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare is the only film in the series to include 3D segments. The 3D sequences are actually incorporated into the storyline and details the origin of Freddy Krueger's birth as the master of nightmares.
  • Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare was universally panned by both critics and viewers. It received a 19% rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes. [5] Ironically, the tagline for the film is, "They saved the best for last", though the low box office receipts would suggest otherwise.
  • This film marks the directorial debut of Rachel Talalay. Rachel is a production staff member at New Line Cinema and has been involved with the development of the entire franchise in one capacity or another either as a line producer, an editor or a co-producer.
  • This is the only film in the series where the bulk of the action takes place away from Springwood, Ohio. However, as Freddy himself reminds the viewer, "Every town has an Elm Street!"

Allusions Edit

  • In one scene, Freddy is seen flying on a broomstick intoning the lines, "I'll get you, my pretty! And your little soul, too!" This is a reference to Margaret Hamilton's character, the Wicked Witch of the West from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.
