The sixth Nightmare on Elm Street movie deals with the little damage left to be done in Springwood. Freddy's goal was to wipe out the whole teenage population in town and he's almost there. This is the apocalyptic one. The script is evidently setup so to feel like it truly is the end, and while no character is ever joyful, here, Freddy compensates with a humor more witty and eccentric than ever.
The murder scenes are their imaginative self, but they are more slapstick, emotionless. Freddy's world is now that of a cartoon, or a video game, and is still so very iconic, so atmospheric, that the film manages to be both creepy and mesmerizing at once. Well-orchestrated photography highly contributes to this, as reality blends with dream and set designs gradually distort into an astral prison.
Freddy’s Dead is the best looking film in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, but not the most organic. It's a sequel that comes full circle, referencing the past, reinterpreting scenes from its own franchise, and partially acting as prequel; all this cleverly narrated through a procedural, flashbacks and psychic dreams.
