A box set containing all seven of Wes Craven's 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' films. In the opener, American teenager Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) begins to suffer from nightmares, only to discover that many of her friends are having similarly disturbed nights' sleep. Their dreams are haunted by the hideously scarred former child murderer Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) who, it soon transpires, has the power to kill them in their sleep. Freddy is out to exact his revenge on the children of those who burned him alive in retribution for his crimes, and the only way to avoid his reprisals is to avoid sleep - but Nancy knows that she can't stay awake for ever. The sequel 'Freddy's Revenge' is set five years after the original. The Walsh family have now moved into the house formerly owned by the Thompsons, and it is not long before teenage son Jesse (Mark Patton) is having bad dreams. He and girlfriend Lisa attempt to work out what is happening to him, but before long Jesse becomes convinced that Freddy has taken over his body in order to continue his murderous rampage. The second sequel, 'Dream Warriors', features the return of Nancy from the first film, now a psychiatric doctor. She teams up with Dr Neil Goldman (Craig Wasson) when a group of teenagers at his hospital begin to suffer a shared nightmare, and soon realises that Freddy has returned to continue wreaking his revenge on the descendants of those who killed him. By the fourth film, 'The Dream Master', Freddy has killed off all the children of those who originally burnt him to death. Now he's starting to kill their teenage friends. Luckily, Alice Johnson (Lisa Wilcox), one of the endangered kids, has the special ability to bring others into her dreams. She is the Dream Master, and therefore the only one who can stop the razor-fingered prankster from wreaking more of his murderous havoc. In 'The Dream Child', Alice is expecting a baby. Unfortunately for her, the meddlesome Freddy finds out about this and begins to control the foetus's dreams, hoping that the birth will be his means of returning to the land of the living. So the Dream Master sets to work, taking the battle to Krueger one final time. In 'Freddy's Dead - The Final Nightmare', having wiped out all the children in his home town, dreamstalking psychokiller Freddy decides it is time to head for pastures new. Luckily for him, he happens across a home for troubled teens and is soon indulging his unspeakable appetites once again. This was originally intended to be the final instalment in the 'Nightmare on Elm Street' series, but director Wes Craven was unable to resist bringing Freddy back one more time in his 1994 'Wes Craven's New Nightmare', a coda to the series in which Craven and his producer play themselves, persuading the now grown-up Heather Langenkamp (of the first film) to return to Elm Street one more time. She and Robert Englund are lured back to play their characters again, but this time they cannot walk away from them when they leave the film set at the end of the day...

If you're a fan of the Nightmare On Elm Street series, then this is the best collection that you'll most probably EVER see. It provides everything you could ever possibly want as a fan of the series, and a whole lot more.
All seven movies have made it to this collection, from the chilling original, to the comedic finale. And of course, the much welcomed and fiercely original bookmark to the series, Wes Craven's New Nightmare, is included too. The movies have without a shadow of a doubt, never looked better.
All of the prints are crisply remastered, to the point where even the 1984 original looks like it was filmed yesterday. The colours are so incredibly vibrant, and it truely brings the movies to life. The ever-colourful Freddy, the wild fantasy death scenes and the myriad of dream imagery look the best that they ever will in this collection, making you understand once and for all what the DVD format was made for. Even the 3D ending to part 6 is included, with 2 pairs of 3D glasses thrown in the mix.
And let's not forget the sound. With new enhanced Dolby 5.1 soundtracks for each movie, you have the choice of absolutely immersing yourself in the nightmare. You'll be guaranteed bad dreams if you spend too much time watching these in full surround sound with all the lights off. The one element lacking in the sound is the scarce Commentary. Commentary tracks appear only on the bookends of the series, both of the Wes Craven written/directed movies, his original vision and the new nightmare. Part 1's is the amusing and informative laser-disc track with Wes Craven, Jacques Haitkin, Heather Langencamp and John Saxon. New Nightmare's is a Wes Craven solo, which is deeply insightful and informative.

I have only recently really got into Horror movies, and when I saw this pretty cheap I thought I would give it ago and get the series.

The first is, of cause, the classic. I would not put it down as one of the all time film classics, but it it still one of the better films. The graphics are, at times, a bit dated. Particulary when Freddy comes after Nancy in the alley way and extends his arms to try and get her. But other than that a pretty solid film. The ending's a bit weird to.

Part 2 - an ok film on its own, but it just does not fit in with the rest of the series. It's about a boy called Jesse who is possesed and has nothing to do with dreams. It has the feel of a film that had little time taken over the story in an atempt to just get it released.

Part 3 - My personal favorite. this film brings us back to the old style of freedy and dreams. It also brings back some ofthe original cast form the first film and has some interesting deaths. It also starts the Freddy puns which give a bit of comic relief.

Part 4 - The Dream Master. This film is a bit wierd at times. It centres around Alice who brings pepole into her dreams for Freddy to kill. Having said that, the finale is pretty cool, especially when Freddy is torm apart by all the souls he's collected.

Part 5 - This film shows the beginings of a lack of Ideas, as a rather random idea about Freddy trying to entre the world through Alice's unborn baby is used. The Freddy backstory in this film is good, but other than that the film is not as good as some of the others.

Part 6 - This film clearly shows all the signs of an idea stretched too far.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I'd gladly give this Set 5 Stars if not for the following issues: 1) Only the 1st in the Series (Part 1) has 7.1 HD DTS Dolby Digital Surround (for some reason). The rest only have 5.1 DTS HD Surround. 2) Also, the images in the background become 'pixelated' in some of the films. 3) One more thing - the Bonus Disc (DVD) is Region-Locked for play only in European DVD/Blu-Ray Players. This isn't mentioned in the product description AT ALL. It simply says 'Region Free', but that only applies to the 4 Blu-Ray Discs. Other than the aforementioned discreppancies, it's a fantastic buy! $45 (USD - including Shipping) is a wonderful deal. If bought at the U.S. Amazon Website, you'll pay at least $80 for a USED Set!! Get it from here, but you may need a Region Free DVD Player for Disc 5 (Bonus Disc). Thank you for reading! This was a lot to type via Touchscreen Cell Phone! ;~D

Robert Englund plays Freddy Krueger, a vile, sadistic, and hideously disfigured, serial killer of children. His weapon of choice is an old, worn out leather glove, festooned with razor sharp, very long knives. A group of the parents of Freddy's victims gang together and burn Krueger alive, but that's not the end of the maniac. He continues to exist inside the dreams of other children, and if he kills you in your sleep, you die for real...
The first Elm Street movie is an exceptional horror flick, which has aged very well. The six sequels are less successful, still watchable and fairly entertaining, but substituting a good story and well drawn characters for ever more make up F/X and CGI. The fifth sequel is a definite low point, devoid of horror, and inappropriately campy and schlocky. The sixth and final sequel is a solid return to form, not quite as good as the excellent original, but still, a suitably effective closing chapter to a much loved series of horror movies.
I've reviewed each of the seven Elm Street movies in depth, on the individual product pages for those DVD's. The links are set out below:-

Elm Street 1 - A Nightmare On Elm Street [Blu-ray] [1984];

Elm Street 2 - A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge [DVD];

Elm Street 3 - A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors [DVD];

Elm Street 4 -
