Product Description

Product Description

Wes Craven's 1984 horror film is a better movie than it is generally credited for being. Forget the tawdry sequels; this highly original, almost surrealist work stars Robert Englund as a mutilated monster who kills teenagers during their dreams. Craven, who only directed one Elm Street sequel (Wes Craven's New Nightmare), takes the Hitchcockian step of layering in psychological explanations for the terror and then proving them all irrelevant in the face of mindless evil. The horror in the film is emotionally raw, in contrast to the overimaginative set pieces of most of the sequels that followed; and the final scene is as deeply unsettling as anything Luis Buñuel ever committed to film. --Tom Keogh

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This movie has the classic line- Whatever you do, don't fall asleep. Freddy Krueger statts to stalk the kids of Elm Street in their dreams and when they are killed in their dreams, they die for real. This is movie has more gory scenes than Halloween. If you want graphic horror violence, extreme violence and brutal violence, then this is the movie for you. I like this movie, but it's not my favorite in the series. My favorite movie in the series is the second film- Freddy's Revenge and the third film- Dream Warriors. This is a great horror film and a must-have for every fan of the horror genre. This is a slasher movie and one of the best slasher movies ever made- but without the success of Psycho and Halloween, this movie would not have been made possible. Psycho and Halloween are the best movies in the slasher genre. I like Johnny Depp's scene in this movie and all the gore coming out of the bed. Fantastic moment in the film. The end of the movie is cheesy. If you like slasher movies, skip this movie and watch the Scream series.

****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!!!

Going in, I hoped for a cheesy 80's-horror movie. I didn't get that. I got the apex of 80's films which has influenced three generations of fans, 6 sequels, one remake, a T.V. show and an army of trick-or-treater's. (Which I don't fully understand why kids would know what this is, but hey, It's just a movie. The story is tight and scary (something I can't say about horror films these days) The acting was great and the effects are awesome.

Overall you NEED to see this. It is worth the money and I am totally going to keep this for years to come!

This is one of my favourite horror films! I watched it when I was 14 and it scared the pants off me...in the day time! I'm not sure it has stood the test of time but its good to watch Johnny Depp's screen debut and the role that made Robert Englund a horror icon.

Old but still very good. The subject (interaction between dreams and reality) is well depicted. You get a fair dose of fear and stress. The end is rather confusing. It ends well for the young people, but I don't understand how it happened. Watch it and you'll see. Time well spent watching.

I had never heard or seen this film before, except for The Simpsons' spoof of it. I find information on the film and finally watched on YouTube and I couldn't take my eyes off it. I did get a little scare, but I know it is only a movie...I am not stupid! And to you Johnny Depp fans like I am, this is his first film.

The film (as you all know) starts with 15-year-old Nancy Thompson (I think) suffering from violent nightmares about a badly burned man wearing a glove with knives on each finger. She quickly learns that this man -- a child murderer named Freddy Krueger is also terrorizing the dreams of her friend Tina, her boyfriend Rod and her (Nancy's) boyfriend, Glen. As they begin to die one by one in their sleep, Nancy learns from her mother, that years ago, the parents of Elm Street burned Krueger alive, by leaving a trial of gasoline to the his boiler room; also splashing the gas around the place. And now Freddy's ghost is back to claim their children's lives as revenge! So Nancy must save their lives and her own by bringing Freddy out of their dreams and back into the real world to destroy him forever.

The was film was a horror film success, that four sequels were made. But because of the negative reviews, I am not going to watch them. So my last word is that this film a excellent scare-fest, and I would advise you of naive nature like me NOT to watch it before bed (*evil laughter*).
