Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 0/2 + Love/Sex: 0.5/1 + Plot: 0.5/1 + Music: 0.5/1 + Good vs. Evil: 0.5/1 + Special Effects: 1/1 = 5/10 or 50%. It's over man, game over!

You could tell from the beginning of this one that they were seriously desperate for ideas and that anything would do at this point. Once again we have Freddy resurrecting for no apparent reason other than cash for the studio.
