Product Description

Wes Craven's New Nightmare (DVD)

From the Back Cover

Writer-director Wes Craven (Scream 1, 2 and 3) returns to the darkest shadows of Elm Street with "the cleverest, wittiest, most twisted scarefest in ages!" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone).

Winner of a Golden Scroll of Outstanding Achievement from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror, this spine-tingling tale reunites original Nightmare stars Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp and John Saxon as "reel" Freddy invades the real world with deadly results.

Life imitated art during filming. Soon after shooting an earthquake sequence, the "Northridge Quake" shook Los Angeles. Says Craven, "We were about to have rubble created for the movie, but instead, we were able to just go out and film from the streets." But don't worry, Freddy fans. It's only a movie...or is it?

Customer Reviews

Wes Craven is very creative.
Brandon Stevens
He looks really cool in this one too and looks soooo much better than in the first six NOES movies.
To me New Nightmare is easily the scariest and best movie in the series.

Format: DVD
Freddy was always Wes Craven's baby. The Elm Street sequels, without the creator's active involvement, veered increasingly farther away from his original vision, and Freddy Krueger as we knew and loved him did die in the sixth film. Evil never truly dies, though, a fact made clear by this remarkable, visionary film. Only the most ingenious of scripts could bring Freddy back to us in an acceptable way, and Wes Craven was the only man who could do it. Hearkening all the way back to the fairy tales of old, we learn that Freddy was only one incarnation of what could be called the ultimate evil. Stories, so long as they are told, have the power to contain the forces of evil; when Freddy was killed and the Nightmare series ended, that evil was freed from its bonds and thus given the opportunity to cross over to reality. The whole idea behind Wes Craven's New Nightmare is simply brilliant and ingenious, and it works fabulously on more levels than I will have space enough to expound upon here.
Heather Langenkamp, who played Nancy in the first and third films, plays herself in Wes Craven's New Nightmare. She is joined by a myriad of cast members and contributors to the original Elm Street film, including John Saxon (who played Nancy's father), Robert Englund (whom everyone knows played Freddy), Wes Craven himself, and a number of the men and women who worked with Wes and New Line Cinema to bring Freddy to life in 1984. Craven is working on a new script that will revive Freddy and pit him against his old nemesis Nancy. The only problem is that fantasy is becoming fact for Heather and her family, and the script begins to mirror real life in a frightening way. Heather begins having horrible dreams of Freddy, and her son Dylan (Miko Hughes) begins suffering from his own nightmares.

Hey, I liked this movie a lot...in fact I saw it before it went into wide release at the Toronto Film Festival and Wes got a standing ovation. It's probably better than the original.

But I can't understand why any Amazon reviewer would be dumb enough to spoiler the ENTIRE movie in their review. And they don't even warn you! Hey--It's a horror movie. If we wanted to know what happens beforehand, we'd ask ya. The point of a horror movie is to be surprised.

If you're reading these reviews and haven't seen the movie yet, beware! There's a total spoiler post below, and you should skip it if you want to enjoy the film.

This is brilliant. The best elm street movie yet. The first time I seen this was about a year and a half ago, and I thought it was the worst, utterly boring is what I thought. Now, I just bought it the other night,'cause I felt like giving it another try and watched it, now I love it. It is such a smart movie, and a great twist in the franchise. Wes Craven thought a lot about doing this movie, he even said he couldn't find anyway to follow on from the sixth film. The film is hardly like a sequel, it almost feels like it's a completely different film, and not a sequel. The film changes to a docusoup, with some of the cast from the original movie, it even stars Wes Craven himself, Heather Lagenkamp (Nancy on the original) is in it, along with John Saxon (Nancy's dad) and a small cameo by Nick Corri (Rod on the original), and of course, how could we forget Freddy? Freddy doesn't do any more of the stupid comedy anymore, but he does have some good one-liners like "Hey Dylan, ever played skin the cat?" The gore isn't always big in this, but there are some sickening scenes. Also, Freddy has a different claw, a large, new and improved metal one, and he has a different looking face. The music is slightly better aswell. I like the way Wes brings back some of the classic moments in the original to this one, example: Heather picks up the phone on this, and a tongue comes out from it, which is also from the original. The ending is class, it starts as a killing at a hospital, then Freddy tries to attack the young boy Dylan from the cluds, as Dylan is running across a busy street, then we get to Freddy's real lair, he gets pretty freaky there. The one point I don't like though, is that this movie can confuse you a little. Apart from that... BRILLIANT!
So, this is the best elm street movie yet, extremely clever and quite scary. Don't miss!

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Brett Michael Roberts on July 15, 2001
Format: DVD
Heather Langenkamp (played by Heather Langenkamp), the actress who played Nancy Thompson in A Nightmare On Elm Street and A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors, is now having terrifying nightmares of the fictional dream murderer, Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) and dismisses them as memories of working on numbers 1 and 3. After an interview, she visits Robert Shaye (played by himself) who asks if she'd like to star in a new ANOES film, directed by Wes Craven (himself). She declines, fearing for her son, Dylan (Miko Hughes, Pet Sematary) who's been watching the original film on TV. But as it turns out, Freddy is possesing Dylan's litte body, and Heather is scared.
Wes Craven's New Nightmare is a brilliant film, with much more charecter developement than any other sequels (although I still love most of the sequels) and is more of a fairy tale than a horror film. Other people, suh as Tuesday Knight, Nick Corri, Robert Englund, Marriane Maddelena, John Saxon, ZSA ZSA Gabor, and others play themselves in this one.
This DVD includes both a 1:85:1 widescreen ratio, and a 1:66:1 standard version. There are production notes, "Jump To A Nightmare" scene navigation, and an interesting commentary by director Wes Craven.
