The all-time favorite A Nightmare On Elm Street involves a group of high school friends who are having nightmarish dreams about a brutal killer named Freddy Krueger (Englund throughout the entire series). Sporting knives for fingers, Freddy endlessly stalks the teens in their shared nightmares. (Tricia Spears)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 picture exhibits a very similar quality when compared to the previous DVD release. Colors are vibrant with accurate flesh tones, but blacks are not as deep as they should be, and shadow delineation is wanting. Some noise seems to be cleaned up in this version when compared to the previous release, but some detail in far shots are smudged. (Danny Richelieu)
Our family has made a significant investment in a dedicated home theatre. Upon reading nearly every other home theatre publication, I have found that Widescreen Review has consistently provided us accurate reviews, and as such have built a substantial library of movies and equipment, which we consider “Keepers.” I find the equipment reviews, especially the Subwoofer Special Edition, to be right on the money and a must-have. The video equipment reviews (we are currently in the market for a front projector) are educationally based as well as comparatively based, so I learn about equipment in general while I can compare specifications. I thank you for a publication well worth the cover price issue after issue.
