retro trailer: ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’

Take a look back at an old trailer…

“Fantasy terror.” That’s an interesting way to phrase it. These days, we just call these “horror” stories, and we tend to forget the fantasical elements that remove them from the realm of reality in which a movie like, say, The Silence of the Lambs exists. Or maybe it’s just that these movies have gotten so ridiculous that “fantasy” is now a given when it comes to “horror.”

You do know that there’s a “reimagining” barrelling its way toward us, don’t you? (It opens on April 30 in the U.S. and Canada, and on May 7 in the U.K.) I’ve actually never seen the original film or any of the sequels except the most recent one, Freddy Vs. Jason. So I just bought the eight-disc Nightmare on Elm Street Collection (links below), and I hope to quickly get through them — and maybe even write about them — before the new one opens.

A Nightmare on Elm Street is available on DVD in Region 1 from Amazon.com and from Amazon.ca and in Region 2 from Amazon U.K.
