Debut film for everyone's favourite psychotic slasher, Freddy Krueger. When American teenager Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) begins to suffer from nightmares, she discovers 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. The only way to avoid Freddy's reprisals is to avoid sleep, but Nancy knows that she can't stay awake for ever.
Digitally remastered, this is the original Nightmare film that started it all. Written and directed by Wes Craven and starring Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger, A Nightmare on Elm Street remains an innovative and shocking horror-fantasy.

So NIghtmare is not just the best film of the saga and a totally mesmerizing film, but a real groundbreaking experiment
The seller was brilliant I would highly recommend the seller as they were very helpful and quick to respond if you have any queries
The remake came nowhere near the class of this and the sequels became increasingly, winkingly ridiculous (although still guiltily entertaining). The sheer imagination and bag of ideas on show here carries things through despite some mixed acting efforts and the occasional not so "special" effect. For the most part though it's stellar stuff - old school horror filmmaking from a master of the craft that somehow still seems fresh.
The Blu-Ray transfer is fantastic, no broaden footage or trailing imagery. Quality is superb. The sound, however, as smooth as it is, sometimes sounds a bit muffled. The Sound is the only standard inconsistancy that reminds you that the movie is in fact old. One minute you need to up the volume to hear what the character's are saying and then it is way too loud when the action starts and Fred's on the prowl.
Either way, see for yourself. The transfer makes it worth it.
This song will become all too familiar to you:
'One, two, Freddy's coming for you.
Three, four, better lock your door.
Five, six, grab your crucifix.
Seven, eight, gotta stay up late.
Nine, ten, never sleep again.'
