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...
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.
