I bought this copy of the movie because there are some cool special features on the second tape. On the first tape, there are theatrical trailers and TV spots. On the second tape, there are deleted alternate scenes, alternate takes and endings, and some cool workprint excerpts and FX tests I haven't seen on any of my DVDs. The VHS slipcover case opens and has a quote from Wes Craven, a description of the movie, and screenshots from the movie.
Overall, this copy of A Nightmare on Elm Street is well worth the money for the special features it comes with on the second tape. If you are a fan of A Nightmare on Elm Street, and are a completist and haven't seen all the special features, then this tape is well worth buying and adding to your collection.
All in all, this is a phenomenal VHS set, and it is a shame New Line didn't do this for the other films in the series throughout the series. Going into it, one must understand that this was released 8 years before the DVD set of the series was released, and the sad part is that this VHS has more entertaining features.
If you are a fan of the Nightmare series you should definitely acquire this set. Bare in mind that many of these things were included on the InfiniFilm Ultimate Edition, but not all. I think that film students and amateur film makers, such as myself, will enjoy the bonus material.
In conclusion, this is a worthwhile purchase for VHS and Nightmare enthusiasts.
