Product Description

Product Description

Nightmare on Elm Street Collection (7 DISCS/BD)

Amazon.ca

In the trinity of modern horror films, there's the father (Michael Myers of Halloween, the first masked maniac), the son (Jason of Friday the 13th fame, a knockoff), and the unholy spirit, Freddy Krueger of the Nightmare on Elm Street films. The spectral man who haunted the nightmares of unsuspecting teenagers with deadly consequences, Freddy (as played by Robert Englund) was a truly frightening bogeyman and icon for the '80s. Unlike the hockey-masked Jason, who dispatched horny teenagers with mechanical and monotonous ease (he never talked, never took off his mask), Freddy was a truly creative and diabolical villain, with a sadistic and blackly funny personality. The hallmarks of the Nightmare on Elm Street series were imaginatively gruesome suspense pieces, set in the overactive imaginations of the teen victims. The first film of the series, Wes Craven's truly intelligent and scary film, was so hugely successful it begat not one, not two, but six more sequels, each pretty much diluting the originality and horror of its predecesor. (Horror fans will fondly remember Drew Barrymore's assertion in Scream that the first Nightmare film was great but all the rest sucked.) Still, there's fun to be had in the remaining films in the series, seeing as a number of aspiring filmmakers cut their teeth on the continuing saga of Freddy. Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) and Chuck Russell (The Mask) worked on the third installment, Dream Warriors (starring a young Patricia Arquette), and Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2) came to prominence with the ingeniously macabre fourth film, The Dream Master, coscripted by Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential). Craven and original star Heather Langenkamp did return for the last film, New Nightmare, which presaged the tongue-in-cheek postmodernism of the Scream films and resharpened Freddy's ability to scare. --Mark Englehart --This text refers to the VHS Tape edition.

Amazing collection. Everything was updated, the movies were restored, the boxset is nice and the menus and special features are pristine. They even made a distinction between Castillian and Spanish. AMAZING

Awesome campy fun! Great to see these films in full HD, but the conversion process has made the films have a slight grain affect to them.

None the less, all the extras, features and commentary are all well worth it!

The best movie in the series is the first film because it launched a horror movie franchise. Favorite films: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY'S REVENGE, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3- DREAM WARRIORS AND A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4- DREAM MASTER. THE OTHER MOVIES: A NIGHTMARE ELM STREET 5: DREAM CHILD, FREDDY'S DEAD AND NEW NIGHTMARE ARE OK, BUT NOT THE BEST IN THE SERIES. Personal favorite is Dream Warriors because Freddy meets his match in Kristen. Slasher franchises have been very successful at the box office. Scream towers above Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and Halloween. However, one has to consider that without the original slasher film, Psycho, Halloween wouldn't have been possible and without Halloween, there wouldn't have been the Friday the 13th franchise or Nightmare on Elm Street or Scream. The worst movies in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise were the Dream Child, Freddy's Dead and New Nightmare. I love the first four films, but I hate the remake. Terrible.

I grew up with these movies. And although they scared me when i was little, I still liked watching them! I remember avoiding meatballs for months after seeing the meatball pizza scene in A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master. I hadn't seen some of these movies in a while, and I wasn't sure I should spend this much money on this collection. But I finally decided to do it, and it was worth it. This collection is awesome! Not only the movies, but the packaging is good too. The front covers on the cases have really cool pictures (different from the DVD's which are sold seperately) The original covers for Nightmares 1, 3, 4 and Fredd's Dead are included, and brand new artwork for Nightmares 2, 5, and New Nightmare. The slipcase box is cool too with 2 different freddy images on each side, and the enclosed booklet is nice as well, but maybe could have inclded more stuff. The eight disc (The Nightmare Encyclopedia) is a game-type disc where you hunt for clues and find hidden features. ...
Now for the movies:
"A Nightmare On Elm Street"
The best of the best, and still the scariest of all the movies. I really love this movie, and even though the special effects are simple, they are effective. The characters in this movie are cool, and Freddy himself is dark, mysterious and frightening (as opposed to some of the other movies) I rate this movie 10/10
"Freddy's Revenge"
A lot of people hate this one, but I really like it a lot, epecially after seeing it again recently for the first time in a long while.

Oh, the Nightmare on Elm Street New Line Platinum Series box set. What a set. It includes so much. First off, they're in widescreen. All of them are 1.85:1. They all have really good transfers, and the new 5.1 isn't that bad on the discs. To me, Nightmare 2 looked perfect compared to the old tape I watched it on. The only extra features on the film discs are the "Jump to a Nightmare" feature, biographies and filmographies, and commentary on Nightmare 1 and 7. The commentaries weren't really fun to listen to. Here's my rating for the films:
Nightmare 1: ***. It was dark, scary, and really original. Freddy isn't really revealed. It only had about 1 joke in the whole movie, but that was a good thing. It has a really dark tone.
Nightmare 2: **. The worst. They used a little more humor, but it didn't have enough Freddy. Well, I've seen worse.
Nightmare 3: ***. This one started the whole Freddy being funny trend. The film was awesome. Roger Ebert only gave it *1/2. I don't know why. I like Roger Ebert, but I don't agree with him on half of his reviews.
Nightmare 4: **1/2. This film used so much humor, but it still has a nice atmosphere.
Nightmare 5: **1/2. This one was the coolest visually. There was only 3 kills, and they tried to be serious. It's still good.
Freddy's Dead: ***. This is a classic. A lot of people hate it. I love this movie. It could be my favorite. Who cares if Freddy's completely revealed and he is given plenty of one-liners? This is the funniest. It's one of my favorite horror-comedies. It's the most entertaining, and it can be viewed several times. It's really short too. It's only about 89 minutes. Don't listen to the back of the DVD case; it's not 96. Almost no blood or gore, and that just makes this movie better.
New Nightmare: ***.

In this review, I DO NOT AIM TO DISCUSS THE QUALITY OF THE FILMS/MATERIAL. I just want to clarify details about the set's packaging that have been debated in past reviews.

First of all, there are no 3D glasses to be found here (whether the 3D ending of film #6 is still included is still unknown to me, but, like I said, this review isn't to review content).

Second of all, the case is plastic like any DVD case (with a thick slipcover), and not made of paper sleeves as someone else previously reported. The individual discs are housed in plastic "pages" with one disc clipped into each side (not unlike most DVD box sets).

Lastly, the only other thing included in the box besides the 8 discs is a theater admission coupon for the new remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street starring Jackie Earle Haley (NOTE: my review of the remake can be found at [...] if this is an enticing feature of the box set for you). There is no booklet or anything like that.

Also, it may be worth clarifying the fact that the 8th disc contains the film "Freddy vs. Jason", and not simply a documentary/bonus feature set as others have previously mentioned (I imagine people who said otherwise bought the set before 2003).

Overall, I'm very pleased with the packaging of this set, having been prepared for the worst by reading reviews here that were obviously written about past versions of this box set. Since Amazon doesn't provide this information, I figured I'd put it in a review for you guys. Hopefully it was useful in helping to remove any doubts similar to the ones I had when purchasing.
