The sixth and supposedly "final" chapter of the Nightmare on Elm Street series sees Freddy torment and murder his way through a collection of troubled teens, but one of the characters holds the key that could end Freddy's nightmares permanently. The movie was followed by Wes Craven's New Nightmare.
Peter Jackson was hired at one point to write a script for this film. His draft ended up going unused, centering around the idea that Freddy was growing weak and old inside the dream world.2 More Trivia

Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare is supposed to be the last in the canon Nightmare on Elm Street movies. It delves deeper into Freddy's past, showing that he was abused as a child by his father (played by Alice Cooper) and Freddy is finally finished off.
The last 15 minutes of the movie are in 3D, with effects that shoot toward the screen. The 3D in the movie is universally known to be bad.
