Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In the trinity of modern horror films, there's the father (Michael Myers of Halloween), the son (Jason of Friday the13th 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

4.0 out of 5 stars A tradeoff: you save space but lose packaging November 8, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is more of a review for the packaging than the movies, 'cause if you're here, you should know the drill on the movies. This set includes the classic first one and the so-bad-it's-good follow-up, as well as "Dream Warriors," which reinvigorated the series, and its lesser companion, "Dream Master." As Sean L. already stated, the first movie is the standard 1-disc edition, not the Infinifilm edition (A Nightmare on Elm Street (Infinifilm Edition)).

Combining these four movies as part of Warner Bros's "4 Film Favorites" series is a novel idea (and the second half of the series is available as a second "4 Film Favorites" set here: A Nightmare on Elm Street 5-8: 4 Film Favorites). All four movies feature the exact same transfer, menus, and features as the individual releases, but in a 2-disc standard-size plastic DVD case, meaning that this set takes up 75% less room than the individual releases.

However, what you save in space, you lose in packaging. As with all of Warner's "4 Film Favorites," there is no internal artwork, such as a chapter insert, and even the two discs themselves feature no artwork, as they're flipper discs, with 1 movie on each side of each disc. Because of this, the discs themselves look plain and are more prone to fingerprints and scratching.

So, do you care about space or about having the complete artwork for each movie? Personally, I'm a big fan of this "4 Film Favorites" series: I get to have all 7 Nightmare movies (and "Freddy Vs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four nightmares at a great price May 22, 2011
Format:DVD
These four film favorites pack are an excellent value for fans who want to own all the movies and buy them at a reasonable price. $10.99 for four movies is a very good deal, especially when you consider that a single individual Nightmare On Elm Street film is almost the same price as this four-in-one DVD. Put it this way, this is a cost-effective way of watching and owning the first four films in the Nightmare On Elm Street series, however you lose packaging (you could also buy the Nightmare On Elm Street collection, a complete series box set with individual discs if you're a more serious collector). Unless you really wish to own each film separately, this may be the best way to own all the Freddy movies. This four pack has two flipper discs DVDs with A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) and Freddy's Revenge (1985) both on disc one, and Dream Warriors (1987) and Dream Master (1988) are together on disc two. To me the best Freddy remains the original but Dream Warriors is an excellent sequel and I like Dream Master as well. I'm not a huge fan of Freddy's Revenge and consider it one of the worst Nightmares but with this four film favorites DVD collection, I still own them all for a reasonable price.

A second "Four Film Favorites" is also available which include Freddy 5-8 : Dream Child (1989), Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994) and Freddy vs. Jason (2003). However, these are the lesser Freddy movies, the ones that are a bit more cheesy, too funny and over the top. Fans usually don't like all the sequels and 5-8 are the ones that aren't remembered too fondly. I say for the value this is an excellent deal, four Nightmares film for this low price is convenient for a movie fan and collector like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best Nightmares for nothing May 6, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you want awesome packaging, detailed liner notes, or any of the bells and whistles you wont find it here. If you want the first four, and some of the best Nightmare movies made for a very low price, than look no further. A great little collection for any horror fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Freddy's Greatest Hits October 16, 2010
Format:DVD
If you're a fan of the Nightmare series and you're looking to own the movies on-the-cheap these 4-packs are really the way to go (the remaining Nightmare sequels are available on another 4-pack). The transfers are crisp and the sound quality is well-done for an on-the-cheap collection. There isn't a truckload of special features, but you're really not missing much unless you are a hardcore fan of the series. As for the movies themselves, whether you like this collection or the other collection really depends on which version of Freddy you enjoy - scary Freddy or wisecracking Freddy. For fans of the former, this is your collection. For fans of the latter, get the other collection. As for the films released in this collection, we start off with the original:

A Nightmare on Elm Street - Usually considered the best of the series, the original film treats the material with a seriousness usually lacking in subsequent visits and the film benefits greatly from that treatment. The film is filled with imagery and symbolism almost to the point where you feel like Wes Craven is trying to make more of an art film rather than a things-that-go-bump-in-the-night slasher film. To some that's a plus and to others that's a detrement, but there is something about the original that captures the imagination (of course, tapping into the universal fear of going to sleep and never waking up certainly helps.) Does the film hold up as well now as it did when it was released? Not necessarily. Craven has always had the ability to direct really terrifying sequences, but then surround them with the silliest dialogue/padding you're likely to see. However, in his defense, the silly parts exist solely to get you to like and/or care about the teenage leads (something the sequels did with less and less frequency.
