A Nightmare on Elm Street Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Nightmare on Elm Street delivers a dreamy 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. The 1080p resolution allows for some of the lesser special effects to stand out as particularly phony in look, but the tradeoff is a substantially improved image over standard definition releases. New Line has restrained from wiping the film clean of grain; as a result, the image retains many fine details and textures throughout, even if some darker scenes appear particularly busy and grainy, but the end result is a high quality film-like transfer through and through. The aforementioned detailing is solid whether in the picture's many darker scenes or the several bright exterior or well-lit interiors, for instance Nancy's school or a hospital room. There's a good sense of depth across the board, and while Freddy Krueger's make-up is a bit obscured in the darker scenes, this transfer does reveal the fine definition found on various character faces, whether pores, beads of sweat, or freckles and moles. The image is constantly sharp, and the color palette -- as varied as it is -- impresses throughout. Whether the darker and grimier interiors or the various and vibrant shades found in some of the less intensely-scary scenes, the transfer never wants for a better color presentation. Skin tones remain nicely rendered throughout, and shadow detail -- crucial to so many of the film's more important scenes -- remains nicely presented and stable throughout with no extensive crushing or washed out blacks. Despite a few fleeting speckles, the print is very clean and lends another element to what is a handsome 1080p transfer from New Line that's sure to satisfy even fans that have seen A Nightmare on Elm Street dozens of times on lesser home video formats over the years.


A Nightmare on Elm Street Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

A Nightmare on Elm Street slashes onto Blu-ray with an impressive DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack. This disc provides a hearty and aggressive sonic presentation that delivers plenty of back-channel information; the opening chase scene in particular is awash in music and sound effects that pour from every speaker and create a hopeless but exciting atmosphere that sets a strong tone for the rest of the movie and, indeed, its lossless soundtrack. Surround information both discrete and atmospheric impress; from blowing steam and screams to more subtle effects such as heavy breathing or buzzing insects heard during a nighttime scene, the track delivers a full, mostly clear, and solidly immersive listen during both action/horror scenes as well as those more dialogue-intensive segments. There's even a chilling realism to a shot featuring Freddy scraping his sharp blades against a surface that plays like the old fingernails-on-chalkboard sound, and it's every bit as shiver-worthy and spine-tingling here as that sound is in real life. The synth-heavy score, too, plays aggressively and with a good bit of clarity, the music seeming to spread evenly all over the soundstage to help truly engulf the listener in the entire A Nightmare on Elm Street experience as played via this lossless soundtrack. Though a few lines of dialogue can play as slightly muffled, there are no lines that are unintelligible of unclear. Overall, this is a fine presentation of an aging but still immersive and chilling soundtrack.
