  A Superb Blu Ray Box Set

I was thrilled when I heard this was coming out and even more excited when I finally got my hands on it earlier this year. I wasn't an avid fan as a child in the 80's but was aware of the hype at the time and had seen some of the movies. Now in my early 30s and always thriving for nostalgia I couldn't wait to watch all the movies back to back and be taken back to how Horror movies were made in the iconic 80s. Freddy is without doubt the greatest modern day horror icon. The tatty fedora, the green and red striped sweater, and the infamous razor fingered glove. It is hard to understand why a badly burned child killer can be such an icon figure but he manages it. Robert Englund is brilliant as Freddy in all 7 of the movies included here, despite his make up looking shoddy in some of the later movies. I found the picture quality to be great on all 7 movies and despite some of the movies being far better than others, in my opinion the ground breaking first movie by Legendary Horror thriller director Wes Craven, and the 3rd and 4th enteries are by far the better movies here but the others are still worth a watch even if they feel like they are treading water a bit and get a little confusing at times. I bought Freddy vs Jason seperately as it isn't included in this great slim line box set but for under 30 quid I reccomend this to fans of the series or young movie fans who fancy how things were done back in the day when horror wasn't always about CGI blood and torture. These remain great fun imaginative special effect ladden horror treats.

  not a nightmare blu ray!

the films are classic even if they do get very silly as they they go along.... the PQ gets better and better from one film to the next, the set comes in a slim case holding all the films (2 each disc) the only let down for me was that Freddy vs Jason and the remake are not in this set (you can get both on blu ray cheap) im a huge nightmare on elm street fan so already had the remake and the first elm street film in a double box set, this set comes with loads of extras on the blu discs along with a DVD disc FULL of even more extras!

  "..AT LAST AN ALMOST DECENT SET FOR UK.."

At last a slightly better set of nightmare films for the U.K, these are a classic collection of horror movies from the 80s up until the early 90s, Freddy Krueger is pretty much a legend now and an iconic movie maniac, its great to see a full set on blu ray its just a shame about the lack of extras, the original film gets a few but the others miss out, the U.S box set on DVD is amazing with tons and tons more extra stuff, this is still worth picking up if you dont have them already, classic horror with many great stars like Johnny Depp, Lawrence Fishburn, Robert Englund, Kim Myers, Patricia Arquette and many more. Plenty of blood and classic one liners from Freddy.
