    The one with the phone and the one with the mirror are the best. Gifs should be short and visually to the point, otherwise they are just inferior short videos.

  • LaurenTaylor

    The bird blowing up is still the best.

    • Scorpionsy

      Freddy’s gloves emerging from the bathtub, Freddy’s tongue popping out the phone’s mouthpiece (part 1), Freddy rising from the bed sheets and ripping out through them (part 1), Freddy’s arm popping out from the bed mattress and pulling in Johnny Depp followed by a geyser of blood (part 1), Freddy ripping out of the guy’s skin (in part 2) and Freddy’s Head popping out of a TV set and then his arms pull the girl’s head smashing it into the TV, Freddy eating a human-head meatball from a pizza(part 4), Freddy trapping a girl in a Roach Motel trap and turning her into a roach then squashing her (also part 4)….and many other scenes (too much to mention here)…are WAY more iconic of the movies that the self-combustion parrot clip, IMO.

      • Scorpionsy

        Freddy’s Head popping out of a TV set and then his arms pull the girl’s head smashing it into the TV…forgot to mention that was from part 3.

  • Cupcake-of-Doom

    How is this set different than the one I got a few months ago. It looks like the same exact thing.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    I’m also a little confused, this box-set has been available on ‘Amazon’ for a while now. Although when I received it I did think they had sent me the UK set by mistake, but it did work on my region 1 blu-ray player.

    • Scorpionsy

      That is because several UK blu-ray titles are region 0 (region free) so they will work in any country/region…and that is the way all the blu-rays should be made..unfortunately that is not the reality of the situation.

  • sweetooth

    It’s identical to the UK set. Frankly, it’s pretty lackluster. The cover art is about as lame as it gets, they put multiple movies on each disc, and Nightmare 5 is still the censored version.

    I think I’ll stick with my WAY more badass 1999 DVD Box Set until they release a proper bluray set.

  • menoch

    Wow, surprising how long it’s taken you guys in the US to get this set. Its been available here in Australia for about a year already. Now where’s that Friday 13th boxset!

  • Ravinus

    Friday the 13th is far superior.

    • Scorpionsy

      I did not like the Friday the 13th remake that much…it was just ok for me…however, I loved Marcus Nispel’s TCM 2003 remake…since he did both these movies for Platinum Dunes.

      But the Friday remake definitely was way better than the Nightmare remake, IMO.

    Didn’t this already come out? And why is there no theatrical trailer on the first movie?

  • Scorpionsy

    Awesome! I have the original DVD collection that came out several years ago.

    This series and Freddy were very important to me in my teenage years…along with Evil Dead, TCM and Hellraiser.

    Freddy specially was a personal favorite.

    The only 2 disappointing things were not having Freddy vs Jason (in a new release with extras) and ESPECIALLY not having the recent ANOES Documentary called “Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy” by Heather Langencamp from 2010. It was an amazing and complete documentary. I met Heather personally when the DVD came out and she was a sweetheart…very humble and down to earth. Those 2 should have been a must for this collection. :(

    • Scorpionsy

      Oh, and I don’t give a crap about the Nightmare on Elm Street Remake…it sucked…and it ripped off (almost shot for shot…like the gloves emerging from the bathtub or Freddy’s face pushing through the wall above the bed scenes for example…just like that crappy Psycho shot for shot remake) several scenes from the original first movie…the Freddy make-up was not scary at all (gone was his iconic witch-style nose which made him look even scarier) and they replaced the makeup with this “realistic looking” (according to them) burn makeup which made Freddy not look scary at all…he looked like he had Downs Syndrome (nothing against anyone with DS but that makeup did not look scary for a boogeyman like Freddy should look like). The movie not scary at all to me…just another movie made for the SCREAM / Twilight teenage audience. I was very pissed off at that movie. The actor playing Freddy is a great actor…but even he could not save this movie.

      • Ravinus

        Fuck the no name calling rule. You’re an idiot.

        • Scorpionsy

          And why is that, sir? How have I offended thee?

    I think I’m going to have to agree with Scorpionsy on this one. The remake wasn’t all that great…. I don’t even think the script was very good either….
    The lighting and sets were pretty good…. I need to watch it again, maybe I’ll change my opinion.
