A Nightmare On Elm Street Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) is having grisly nightmares. Meanwhile, her high-school friends, who are having the very same dreams, are being slaughtered in their sleep by the hideous fiend of their shared nightmares. When the police ignore her explanation, she herself must confront the killer in his shadowy realm...

From modern horror master Wes Craven comes a timeless shocker that remains the standard bearer for terror. Featuring Johnny Depp in his first starring role, this horror classic gave birth to one of the most infamous undead villains in cinematic history: Freddy Krueger.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge Five years have passed since Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) was sent howling back to hell. But now, a new kid on Elm Street is being haunted every night by gruesome visions of the deadly dream stalker and if his twisted soul takes possession of the boy's body, Freddy will return from the dead to wreak bloody murder and mayhem upon the entire town.

A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors The last of the Elm Street kids are now at a psychiatric ward where Freddy haunts their dreams with unspeakable horrors. Their only hope is dream researcher and fellow survivor Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp of the original Nightmare), who helps them battle the supernatural psycho on his own hellish turf.

A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master Proving there's no rest for the wicked, the unspeakably evil Freddy Krueger is again resurrected from the grave to wreak havoc upon those who dare to dream. As her friends succumb one by one to Freddy's wrath, telepathically gifted Kristen embarks on a desperate mission to destroy the satanic dream stalker and release the tortured souls of his victims once and for all.

A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child Unable to overpower the Dream Master who vanquished him in A Nightmare On Elm Street 4, Freddy haunts the innocent dreams of her unborn child and preys upon her friends with sheer horror. Will the child be saved from becoming Freddy's newest weapon or will the maniac again resurrect his legacy of evil?

A Nightmare On Elm Street 6: Freddy's Dead - The Final Nightmare They tried to burn him, bury him, wash him away with holy water. Freddy hitches a ride inside some poor soul's dream to the nearest town and hey, quicker than you can say "Nine, ten, never sleep again", the dreamstalker's back in business...

A Nightmare On Elm Street 7: Wes Craven's New Nightmare In a frightening new twist in the terror on Elm street, Wes Craven (director of the original film) finds that his dreams have begun to dictate real-life horrors for the stars of the film!

The A nightmare on Elm Street series is one of the most successful horror franchises ever made from the classic original to the under-rated New Nightmare, there have been some great entrys but also some plain old dull ones.

A Nightmare on Elm Street*****
The best of the series introducing us to the most iconic killer ever, freddy kruger, its highly original and was great for its time, loads of shocks and gore with some great performances and standout direction from Wes Craven.

Part 2**
The worst of the lot to be honest, the follow up to the first was a big let down with dull characters and story with a very homoeroctic undertone, a must miss for anyone.

Part 3****
After the lame Part 2, Wes Craven got back on board to create one of the most inventive and original movies of the lot, its scary, grusome and Freddy still has his fear factor, also with bringing back the character nancy and her dad it provided some link back to part one and created a must needed boost for the franchise.

Part 4 & 5***
These two entrys certaintly were not the worst in the series but Freddy seemed to have lost his scary side and became more of a joke, with some silly one-liners and terrible deaths these where the average Nightmare on Elm Street movies although they where good they did not live up to potential that was laid out earlier in part 3, good effort and still fun and enjoyable to watch.

Part 6*
What is there to say but 'AVOID', just awful, Freddy was done for until part 7.

Part 7; A New Nightmare*****
Wes Craven finally got back into the directors chair to prove Freddy was still the monster he created, but this time he's in the real world killing the actors who played the Characters on the A Nightmare on Elm Street films, this was a great move by Craven, bringing Freddy into our world, showing your not even safe when the camera has stopped rolling and making Freddy scary again, unfortuantly the movie was not well received probably because it was way ahead of its time. But still the best entry since Part 3.

Overall this is a fun entertaining boxset that will keep horror fans happy, some great movies in here with the odd one or two dull ones but still worth the watch, best ones, part 1,3 and 7.

 Definitely no nightmare...

I've always had a soft spot for the 'Nightmare' films. When I first saw the original I was immediately taken at the level of creativity present - where many movie psychos would rely on axes, machetes and knives to stab, slash and maim numerous nubile teenagers Freddy Krueger had a bit more originality up his sleeve. Using the concepts of dreams allowed the various directors to cut loose with outlandish dream sequences and OTT SFX. Sure, as the one-liners increased in number the air of menace decreased but the special effects, for their day, were always reliably gooey - in fact I'd go so far to say in some cases are still superior to all this CGI we've been bombarded with over the years. Best of the series - well, after the superb original I'd probably choose 'Dream Warriors' and 'Dream Master' . Worst of the series - After the explosive first film the second 'Freddy's Revenge' felt like an enormous step backwards. Certainly never approaching art, the Freddy films are, nonetheless, inventive, enjoyable horror films and for a mere £17 any self-respecting horror fan should snap up this 7 film boxset now. And try not to fall asleep...

 YOU NEED THIS BOXSET!!!

Worship this boxset! Worship it! Thats what you'll end up doing once you buy it. If your a fan of horror or retro (80's) films this is a must-have. Each of the 7 films are brilliantly made, they have a fantastic story-lines and the one-liners are unforgettable! The nightmares get more and more surreal and creepy. EXTREMELY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

All of these movies are awesome and will always be horror genre classics. Robert Englund is brilliant as Freddy Krueger and every film brings something fresh to the strong horror franchise. These are essential for any horror collection and will always be cult classics.

The first Elms street is the greatest horror of the 80's. It spawned six sequels and the ultimate horror icon !

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 1984
Wes Cravens original and by far the best.
This is the ultimate horror of the 80's, Freddy stays in the shadows and is still very scary. A classic !
*****
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2 1985
This is a weak sequel, and is a very simple possesion story. Although there are still some very spooky moments and a very good music score, also Freddy at this point was still very scary.
**
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3 1987
This is almost as good as the original, this is a very imaginetive horror. Freddy comes out of the shadows, and this time he is much stronger. The film is let down by very poor acting.
****
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4 1988
This is again full of imagination, but is just a re-run of part 3, also Freddy at the time had become such a icon, that they stopped making him scary. Also the acting is as just as wooden as part 3
***
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 5 1989
This time Freddy wants to be a Daddy !
very silly very confusing, Freddy becomes a comedy character. Also a very stupid cartoon super Freddy sequence.
**
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 6 1991
They saved the least till last !
Pathetic ! nothing works, Freddy is just a clown. Terrible story, and a pathetic ending, that in the cinema they made 3D out of desperation, no 3D ending in this crap disc version, just actors pointing thing at you.
A low point in the series
*
WES CRAVENS NEW NIGHTMARE 1994
At last Freddy is back to being scary !
A very original take on the Freddy story.

This is a mixed bag in film quality, but the series changed the face of horror movies. This is a Box-set that no horror fan should do without. A Excellent buy !
