    Nice set I suppose. I wish Englund could come back to this franchise. I don’t know why Hollywood cant apologize for that shit remake and just bring Englund back and give people what they want. Schwarzenegger is comin back as Conan after that corny remake, so what the fuck ?

    Nice to see this is the exact same set that’s been available in the UK for about a year now. I bought it a few months ago, and it is a truly great set. Great transfers. Great audio. Plenty of extras. Still can’t believe it took them this long just to officially release it here.

  • The-Dream-Warrior

    I already own the DVD set and would love to have the Blu-Ray collection, but I imagine Nightmare 5: The Dream Child is the “rated” version (with significant cuts to the death scenes) rather than the much better “unrated” version. I just don’t get why they wouldn’t release the “unrated” version. I watched that version of the movie when I was 9 (probably a hundred times) and I like to think that it didn’t mess me up too much.

    Best Buy has had this for a while now. I got mine around Black Friday last year.

    ‘Never Sleep Again: 50-minute HD documentary’

    Huh? I watched a documentary with the same title recently that ran for like 2 and a half hours. Is it like a truncated version? Because the one I watched was so thorough and excellent.
