Comments

We’ve already hit the apex of the series, now it’s time to roll down the other side of the mountain. This movie straddles the line between “ok” and “really dumb” with most of it dipping into “really dumb.” ALICE LIVES! For as dumb as this movie is, at least it has Lisa Wilcox? But why is her kid so ugly? She would NEVER make a kid that ugly. There are some comic book parts that are pretty cool. Freddy is fully off the deep end.

Recommended?

This one is for die-hards of the series. Lisa Wilcox is great AS USUAL, but the pacing is weird and.. not very good. It seems like it’s trying to have a deeper meaning with a pregnancy anxiety-related theme, but it doesn’t quite work. If I had to give this movie a one line review, it would be “it doesn’t quite work.”

Rating – 5 Hideous Babies out of 10
