This was pretty much everything that one could expect by this. Freddy has a child, and it's up to that child to put him out of his misery before it's too late. That's of course not before he wipes out a bunch of teens from a group home in creative ways. I actually really like the deaths from this one (particularly the hearing aid and computer game deaths) and seeing Roseanne and Tom Arnold turn up was also a great treat. The idea is alright (it could have been better) yet it's still really easy to watch and although not one of the best in the series, it's certainly worthy in it's own way. Nice to see that to this point they hadn't really made a duff film in the series (okay except for the second one).
