Rumored Extras for the U.K. Nightmare on Elm Street Blu-ray Collection

.
1, 2, Freddy's coming to Blu...

These specs are from a member of Blu-ray.com's forum who e-mailed Warner UK's customer service regarding the supplements in the studio's upcoming October 3rd debut of the A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection on Blu-ray. So they're still tentative...

It has been confirmed that like all other Warner Blus (or most), this set will be region free and fully compatible with BD players worldwide. Though I'd wait for the inevitable domestic announcement since this set also has later dates in Spain (9/4), Germany (9/30), and Japan (11/2).

Technical specs are still not official, but I'd expect 1080p/24fps 1.85:1 widescreen transfers and lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 tracks for all seven features. I'd also bet that (hopefully) all the theatrical trailers will be in HD along with the new "Fear Himself: The Life and Crimes of Freddy Krueger" featurette. The ported extras will probably be in standard definition since much of the footage was shot that way.

Being on five presumably 50 gigabyte discs, it looks like Part 1 is on Disc 1, Parts 2/3 on Disc 2, Parts 4/5 on Disc 3, Parts 6/7 on Disc 4, and the fifth being the Bonus Disc. If correct, the below supplements of Craven's original, all in HD, mirror Warner's existing individual Blu-ray. It also appears Warner did the right thing by porting all the extensive extras of New Line's prior DVD Collection.

What looks to be new additions are two episodes of the Freddy's Nightmares TV series and the MTV Freddy Krueger Special as an easter egg. The Spanish set, announced here, also includes an Elm Street mini-comic from Wildstorm and indicates Parts 2-7 will be available individually as double-feature Blu-rays along with the set.

Very cool looking set. If the price is right, I may import this. If not, I'll just wait for the US release.

the NOES 4 didn't had the "Love Kills" music video of Vinnie Vincent Invasion http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cNvxgd3-YE
but the NOES 3 had the Dokken video "Dream Warriors".
that's unfair

Probably a copyrights issue sadly...

There's probably rights issues involved in Freddy's Nightmares as well. Warner only released the first three episodes on DVD in the UK in '03 and hasn't followed up with more since.

It'll be interesting to see if those two episodes will even be on the US set.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
