Format: DVD
This Nightmare On Elm Street Collection is Amazing! I own both the DVD Collection and VHS Collection. The DVD set is way better due to the many extras found on the bonus disc titled The Nightmare Encyclopedia which has all 7 Movie Previews that were shown in theatres, it also has Music Videos including DOKKEN's "Dream Warriors". It has a interactive game called The Labyrinth which is very hard, if you have a DVD-Rom you get even more extras like all 7 Screenplays and an interactive Freddy that haunts your PC courtesy of Togglethis.com. What can I say you get so much more! All the Movies are in the best Quality ever with the exception of the bad film transfer of Nightmare 2! As far as my personal review of each film I give Nightmare 1 five stars, Nightmare 2 two stars, Nightmare 3 five stars, Nightmare 4 four stars, Nightmare 5 two stars, Nightmare 6 two stars, and than Nightmare 7 Wes Cravens New Nightmare five stars. I have to also say NANCY who is played by Heather Langenkamp brought this whole collection to life with her roles in Nightmare 1, Nightmare 3, and Wes Cravens new Nightmare. Without NANCY who we were all so familiar with from the start, this collection would not be so Good. I also give a big thanks to Wes Craven for taking the laughs out of Freddy and taking him back to what he was in the original Nightmare 1, a Horror Icon not a comedian! I highly encourage anyone to buy this collection! The DVD set is truly amazing for any Nightmare On Elm Street fan!

Format: Blu-ray
This Blu-Ray collection includes the first 7 films of the Nightmare on Elm Street film franchise on only 5 discs (Chucky got 6 discs for 6 films!). 4 discs are Blu-ray while the fifth disc is a DVD. A commemorative booklet is included. There are 3 hours of special features on Disc 5 (Fear Himself, 2 episodes of Freddy's Nightmares, Conclusions, Welcome to Prime Time). Most of the features from the previous DVD box set release are included. Those supplements are good but brief. 13 deleted scenes are included in Welcome to Prime Time. The downside is that there is less than an hour of new material (close to 3 hours if you count the remastered Freddy's Nightmares episodes). Fortunately, the Dokken music video is here (but only in SD). There is roughly 4.5 hours of total bonus content in this collection.

Video Resolution/Codec: 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 | Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1
Audio Formats: English DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 (First Disc Only), English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English Dolby Digital 2.0, French Dolby Digital 1.0
Subtitles/Captions: English SDH, French, Spanish
Special Features: Audio Commentaries, Featurettes, Documentary, Music Videos, Alternate Endings, Deleted Scenes, Interactive Trivia Track, Trailers, Bonus TV Episodes

Limitations: 2 films are missing (Freddy vs. Jason; Nightmare on Elm Street reboot) which are sold separately. Overall, the picture quality is average but the audio quality is a little better. The 1999 Nightmare Encyclopedia is missing and the original film gets the lion's share of extras. Previous making of documentaries (e.g. The Making of Freddy's Dead) aren't included. The full 240-minute documentary Never Sleep Again is cut down to 50 minutes.

If you love the "A nightmare on Elm Street" movies, this is for you. EVen if one or two aren't that great, this boxset is way easier than buying the four or five dvd's you love. I mean, 7 movies , a bonus 8th disk and a booklet descussing all 7 movies for only 80 dollars is a very good price.So, instead of looking at the two or three small things it doesn't come with, you're better off looking at the positive of it. However, if you only like maybe one or two of the films, you're better off buying just those dvds. THis is only for fans whom enjoy the majoroty of the series films. ( if you don't, lets face it you're simply wasting your hard earned money) Now, for those of you who haven't seen these films I will give a short run down of them ( with NO spoilers)

A Nightmare on Elm Street part 1 - Classic film and the best of the series, Freddy is probably the most frightening in this one, a cult classic. Even if you hate the rest, i'm sure you will love this one. It starts out as a young teen girl's (Heather Langenkamp) friends start dying in their sleep by you guessed it Freddy Krueger, as the movie goes on you learn a little about Freddy's history and how he came to be,Johnny Depp's movie debut. I give this 5 out of 5 stars.

A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2. How do you follow up a great movie like the first? Well, eh. They really didn't, one of the worst installments in the series right after the best (go figure)

A young man moves into the same house as the girl from the first movie (Heather Langenkamp) and Freddy uses his body to come back, this movie suffers from havin a poor leading man and a leading woman that is too ditzy, however Robert England doesn't dissapointed and is as scary as the first, making this atleast watchable. I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Firstly, I knew about this UK release before the announced release of the single disc, double movie edition of Nightmare on Elm Street 2 and 3. So, I didn't purchase that. I was very pleasantly surprised by the list of extra features included on this set, and even more pleasantly surprised to find all the old Nightmare Encycolopedia features on the disc as well.

Well, beyond having 'decent' but way better than dvd quality transfers on these films, the big hook for this set is a fifth disc, a dvd, of ALL NEW special features, most prominently a retropspective doc on the entire Nightmare series. Very cool. Wish it was a blu ray, but at the end of the day it really doesn't matter tha much. We also get two episodes of Freddy's Nightmares on this fifth disc. The weird thing about this is that the two episodes are not Freddy Krueger-centric episodes. What the hell is up with that? The pilot episode was a great one directed by horror legend Tobe Hooper(ORIGINAL Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist, Eaten Alive). This episode was basically a short prequel to the first Nightmare on Elm Street film and told Freddy's backstory including his trial and eventual succumbing to mob justice. There were about three more Freddy starring episodes where he was just the villain and they're not the two included either. Makes no sense. Most of Freddy's Nightmares episodes weren't that good. At least with a release of the movie franchise some in cannon episodes would've made sense. I get the feeling Warner Brothers is gearing up to release the Freddy's Nightmares seasons soon and they know if people have the Freddy starring episodes already they probably won't buy the whole seasons. I could be wrong.

Have any of the Elm Street movies been censored?
Part 5 is the rated R version. If you want the unrated version, get the VHS or LD.

DVD Cases of the 2010 collection set
The new set is similar to the latest Ultimate Matrix Collection set: they put the dvd's in one big dvd case about the size of two dvd cases. Much more compact, more convenient in my opinion.

The DVD cases?
I bought mine a few days ago on 10/31/07, and they are all cardboard. I'm not sure when the set was actually manufactured though. It has a copyright date of 1999, so it's possible that it was one of the first batches. I bought it at Fry's brand new, and have never seen this box set with keep... Read More

Digitallly Remastered? yes, no?
This review for the 2010 set says it all: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1U6XN9YWTDTHG/

I wish more people would give that review (which was not written by me) more helpful votes so it could jump to the top of the review section on the 2010 product page.
