Bob McQueen’s review published on Letterboxd:
I'm making my way through the NOES movies I haven't "seen". I've only ever seen parts of 4&5 so after having watched this for the first time all the way through it's not bad. It's very 80s which I'm very okay with. Freddy's voice wasn't as malicious as the previous movies and he didn't seem as dangerous especially after watching Part 2. It's a good entertaining movie but had big shoes to fill with the previous 3 entries. I think what I'll do I was 5 & Freddy's Dead then watch Wes' preferred trilogy of Part 1,3, New Nightmare.
