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

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.

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.

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.

As most of you probably know, the Nightmare on Elm Street series has its highs and its lows. Out of these 4, the first and third are highlights with 2 and 4 being.. a little lackluster. None the less, whether you're a casual fan or a major fanatic, you'll have a blast screaming or making fun of Freddy and his horrific antics with this easy-to-store value pack. It comes with 2 double sided discs that shows the movie in full screen or wide, with a bare minimum of bonus features. I thought the first four would be enough that I'd never want to watch another movie with an Elm reference, but actually I enjoyed them enough that I rushed to buy A Nightmare on Elm Street 5-8: 4 Film Favorites, and I'm sure you'll feel the same way.

Like I said, this is a great value pack. I love me some Nightmare, but not enough to store 8 DVDs. With this I get all the fun without the guilt of having to find a place to put it. If you are a major fan, however, and would like an attractive box set to show off your fanhood, The Nightmare on Elm Street Collection looks like a great box set of the entire series (doesn't include Freddy VS Jason, though).

Pleasant dreams!

This is a collection of the famous film series from 1-4. In part 1, we are introduced to Freddy Krueger, a human male that was murdered by the townspeople for being a psychotic killer. He makes a deal with demons to be able to enter humans' dreams and kill them in their sleep. Some of the kids of Elm St. barely survive part 1. Part 2 is when Freddy wants to enter this realm from the astral world. One boy must fight the possession of Freddy in a supernatural and psychological battle! Freddy is beaten once again, but certainly not killed. Part 3 is the coolest of all the Elm St. films. WE FIGHT BACK HARD. Some kids discover that they can control and shape their dreams like in the other film Dreamscape(not an Elm St. movie). They use their dream powers to fight Freddy in the dream/astral realm. One heck of a fight but Freddy has more experience and still racks up a body count! One kid is different though and beats Freddy. In part 4, Freddy discovers that he has a young male relative that would make a perfect replacement for him if he ever dies. Too bad for Freddy because the girl who beat him in part 3 is guarding the boy! This is the astral war of the ages between a gifted psychic girl and one of the most scary film monsters ever! Action, horror, and even some macabre comedy on Freddy's part(one liners galore) make this some of the best horror you will ever see.
