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.

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.

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.

the first four were always the best in the franchise to me and i could watch them all day everyday. brand new at a low price, i couldn't past it up. the first four really connected back to back giving in depth detail of the elm street legacy. the first touches on how freddy was a child murderer freed on a technicality and all the parents band together to torch him, setting him on fire burning him alive. then, he returns in nightmares killing their children. part two pays homage to nancy, the soul survivor of part one, leaving behind a diary in the house she stayed in on elm street which is soon discovered by freddy's next victim, jesse (whom he basically uses as a pawn to kill victims throughout the film) and jesse's love interest, lisa. it gives detailed information from part one of how scared nancy was and what happened during her struggle. 3 brings nancy back as an older psychiatrist who befriends a bunch of young teens dealing with freddy on a nightly basis the same way she did and she helps them put pieces together to counteract freddy's assault and onslaught of terror throughout the film. although 1 is the best in the franchise hands down, part 4 is my personal favorite-the dream master. kristen returns from part 4 as a gifted dream master who can pull people in her dreams much like she did in part 3. only this time, her gift is passed onto her best friend, alice, whom freddy uses as a prop to pull in her friends for terror torture. this is a must have for any nightmare/freddy fun and does not miss or disappoint in anyway.
