Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare (also known asA Nightmare on Elm Street 6: Freddy’s Dead) is a 1991 American comedy-horror slasher film and the sixth film in the Nightmare on Elm Street series. As the title suggests, it was intended to be the last film in the series and it is the sixth film in the series; however, the success of the film prevented the series from ending (much like Friday the 13th parts four and nine). It is the sequel to A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child and is followed by Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. This was New Line Cinema’s first film released in 3-D.

Additionally, several well-known actors make cameo appearances in the film, including Johnny Depp (whose screen debut was in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street), Roseanne BarrTom Arnold, and Alice CooperIggy Pop sings the movie’s title song, which plays over a montage of scenes from the previous Nightmare movies during the end credits.
