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...

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.
