Product Details

Product Description


Dans le grand succès de Wes Craven, Scream, un des personnages, une passionnée de cinéma, déclare que le premier film de la série des Freddy était génial, mais que les autres étaient vraiment nuls. Et elle avait complètement raison. Les Griffes de la nuit est un chef-d'oeuvre de l'horreur, un monument du genre, qui serait reconnu comme tel s'il n'y avait eu toutes ses suites affligeantes (dont Wes Craven n'a réalisé que la troisième et dernière). Les Griffes de la nuit est certainement le film le plus effrayant des années quatre- vingt (seulement Shining de Stanley Kubrick et peut-être certaines conférences de presse de Ronald Reagan atteignent son niveau). Ce film est également un des voyages les plus profonds du cinéma grand public américain dans le monde illogique du rêve. C'est également un grand film sur les peurs de l'adolescence : lorsque la jeune Nancy (Heather Langencamp) se met à faire des cauchemars dans lesquels elle voit un homme défiguré dont les mains ont des lames à la place des doigts, les gens commencent à mourir dans son entourage. C'est comme si le tueur de ses rêves était devenu réalité, sorti de son subconscient. Et c'est bien évidemment ce qui se passe... Les Griffes de la nuit doit autant à Répulsion de Roman Polanski qu'au premier Halloween de John Carpenter. C'est un film aussi intelligent que terrifiant, où les personnages (et le public) sont traités avec respect, à la différence de beaucoup de ses rejetons, moqués par la suite dans les Scream. Vous remarquerez Johnny Depp dans le rôle d'un copain de Nancy, qui subit une fin particulièrement atroce. --Jim Emerson

Product Description

"1, 2, Freddy's coming for you." And here he is, phantom fiend Freddy Krueger in all his razor-fingered infamy. Wes Craven (Scream movies) directs this trendsetting first in the slash-hit series. The premise is simple: Freddy (Robert Englund) homicidally haunts the sleep of Elm Street teens. The results are terrifying and mind-blowingly innovative. There's another film debut too: Johnny Depp. He plays the ready steady of the hottie mcsmarty (Heather Langenkamp) who figures a clever way to flambé the fiend. But ever-say-die Freddy will be 3, 4 back for more...even returning to the screen in a killer 2010 remake of this diabolical original. Sweet dreams!

4.0 out of 5 stars Alliance Atlantis keeps on impressing!! Oct. 15 2008
By C. Denison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
****UPDATE**** This review was for the Nightmare on Elm Street blu-ray that was released back on September 2nd, 2008. Since then a new release of the movie has come out on blu ray (released on April 13th, 2010) that includes special features (audio commentaries, multiple featurettes, etc) and 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound.

A Nightmare on Elm Street hits blu-ray in terrific form.

The video quality is fantastic. The image is completely cleaned up. No scratches, no dirt, etc. No noticeable edge enhancement to the image as well. The daytime scenes look great; a nice amount of depth and detail in them and the image really pops out at you at times which is a really nice surprise. There were night-time and dream sequence parts which looked a bit on the softer side, but still doesn't look that bad at all, especially when you consider that the film is almost 25 years old. 4 outta 5

Two audio tracks: English Dolby 5.1 and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1. Just like the video, the audio never ceases to amaze me. Surround sound use is fantastic. Bass is good. Dialogue is crisp and clear. I didn't really find anything wrong with this track. 4.5 outta 5

Only downfall to this package is no special features. No commentaries, no featurettes, not even a trailer.

For what it's worth though, this blu-ray release is well worth the money. A terrific high definition transfer. Keep it up Alliance!!!

A couple more disc stats:
Subtitled in both english and in french (both SDH)

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the TOP 5 horror flicks of all time Aug. 5 2000
"nightmare on elm street" is an instant classic. itis simply one of the best horror movies there is. it was dark, scary, somewhat believable with totally original concept and came from the master of horor himself, wes craven. this was the film which launched wes' career sky high. this wasn't like most other films which rely on big budget and special FX to carry the film. "nightmare" certainly didn't have the biggest budget ($1.2 million) but it had wes' creativity and imaginativeness to carry it. that's what makes the film so good. i compare this one to "halloween." a very dark and scary horror movie that also had a small sense of believability. and instead of relying on big budget special FX it relying mostly on the creativeness of the director. of course, not all the credit can be given to director wes craven here, but also the excellent performances given by relative newcomers heather langenkamp, amanda wyss, nick corri, the then newcomer johnny depp and last but not least robert englund (who is wonderful as freddy), john saxon, and ronnee blakely. "nightmare on elm street" is one of the top five horror movies of all time, ranking right up there with "halloween", "hellraiser", and a few others. it's just too bad how the producers played this out with too many sequels. just having parts 1, 3, 7 would've been good enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to take a walk on Elm Street Aug. 18 2012
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
This is where we first met him, the man with the hat, the gloves and that unmistakable sweater, one of the most famous horror icon, forever etched in pop culture: Freddy Krueger. In 1984 a very low budget Wes Craven (The Last House On The Left, The Hills Have Eyes, Scream) film called A Nightmare On Elm Street made its debut introducing Krueger. To me ANOES was a very different horror film because of not only the villain but its universe. Freddy is not a faceless killer like Michael Mayers or Jason, he’s a horribly burned, creepy, disfigured villain with those knives who reigns in the world of dreams. He’s a child murderer, he’s witty with expressions and loves to tease and play with his victims, in my humble opinion he’s one of the greatest villains ever created. I thought it was brilliant how they played with dreams, we all dream right? There’s just something about dreams and nightmares that we can all relate to and this film goes into just that. This movie spawned 6 sequels, Freddy V.S. Jason and the 2010 remake, but this is the best and where it all started. Some of the sequels could also be very funny at the time but the first one is mostly just horror and the creepiness and jumps are there. You definitely find yourself thinking “no, not that way! Don’t do that!” a few times.

I think the story is already well-known by now. Freddy Krueger haunts teenagers in their dreams and if he kills them or does any damages to them the consequences will transport to reality. The parents don’t believe what they say is true although they reveal that they killed a man who was a child murderer named Fred Kruger. It’s a survival test where sleeping isn’t recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars worst Freddy ever!
I didn't like this movie at all. The story isn't the same, and the guy playing Freddy sucks. Also, the make up artists got creative and totally ruined the look of Freddy. Read more
