You can relive a Wes Craven classic in 1080p right before the theatrical remake hits the big screen. A Nightmare on Elm Street will finally be released on Blu-ray on April 6, just weeks before the Platinum Dunes A Nightmare on Elm Street remake hits theaters on April 30. This new BD disc will be priced at $24.98 SRP and you can take a look at the cover art and special features below. The film stars Heather Langenkamp, Robert Englund and features the film debut of a young Johnny Depp.
"1, 2, Freddy's coming for you." And here he is, phantom fiend Freddy Krueger in all his razor-fingered infamy. Wes Craven (Scream movies) directs this trendsetting first in the slash-hit series. The premise is simple: Freddy (Robert Englund) homicidally haunts the sleep of Elm Street teens. The results are terrifying and mind-blowingly innovative. There's another film debut too: Johnny Depp. He plays the ready steady of the hottie mcsmarty (Heather Langenkamp) who figures a clever way to flambé the fiend. But ever-say-die Freddy will be 3, 4 back for more...even returning to the screen in a killer 2010 remake of this diabolical original. Sweet dreams!
