‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Gets High Def Blu-ray Release

Thanks to a different distributor in Canada, Bloody Disgusting already has their hands on a Blu-ray copy of Wes Craven’s original A Nightmare on Elm Street. To this day I stand my ground in saying it’s one of the best hi-def transfers to date. For those of you in the States, Warner Home Video has announced an April 6 release for their Blu-ray release, but we’re not sure if their transfer will differ (if it does, go buy the bare bones from Canada). Beyond the break you’ll find the cover art and full specs for Warner’s release.
