A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection from New Line 10/2
 
It looks like New Line is finally giving their A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series a blu ray upgrade on 10/2:

I'm glad I held off from buying the individual discs of the first three! Looks like procrastination pays off again. (10 to 1 odds they still don't make part 5 unrated...)

This will suck balls if they don't put out 4/5 and 6/7 as separate double features. Don't be lame, Warner Bros. :rolleyes:

Spacetraveler 08-29-2012 12:31 PM

Did they announce what the special features are for each movie?

Agentsusp 08-29-2012 01:24 PM

I assume this will be identical to the UK release. I was pretty dissapointed with the transfers of Parts III and IV which had some color issues.

Drinkinstein 08-29-2012 01:29 PM

Don't get too excited, the early specs seem to indicate the 5th DVD of special features may be left out

Yeah, with a pre-order price of only $41.99 for 7 films on 4 discs, I'm thinking this is just a barebones dump.

And like has been said, there are serious issues with the transfers of 2-4.

I'm passing.

I'm good with a bare bones or re-release of the UK set. Consider me thrilled.

A friend recently picked up the disc of 2/3 and we popped it in briefly -- I thought it looked fine. What are the "serious issues"?

rxfiend 08-29-2012 02:34 PM

I didn't find too much of a problem with them, but some have complained about them being too dark.

fceurich39 08-29-2012 03:00 PM

Mostly color timing issues. I prefer the look of the films as they were always intended theatrically, and how they they were presented on VHS and on DVD.

For starters, from Nightmare 2...

DVD:

Bluray:

DVD:

Bluray:

For some reason, the picture has gone from a blue hue to a red hue. I prefer the original.

Also, based on screencaps from Nightmare 4, and the fact that only a month ago, I saw an actual original 35mm print in a theater, I can confirm that the dark picture depicted on the UK Blu-ray is NOT how the film was presented theatrically. Someone at Warner Bros. fucked up.

To hell with the UK Blu-rays, and to hell with the R1 set if it uses the same faulty transfers.

also nightmare 3 blu-ray picture was waaaay too dark i heard the same thing for part 4 as well

WesReviews 08-29-2012 03:52 PM

In addition to the darkness, Nightmare 3 on Blu-ray has a few odd color timing issues itself, with color timing changing rapidly from shot-to-shot in some scenes...

Those color differences are pretty jarring.

God this is frustrating.

Yeah, no kidding. A million-dollar franchise popular the world over and we can't get a halfway decent release. I don't know what's worse: the UK getting a (better?) release more than a year before the U.S. or the fact that the studio is so indifferent.
