The crocs are back... and they're bigger, badder and more brutal than ever. After the deadly predators' last vicious attack, the government prevented their extermination.

As the teens race to avoid the hungry reptiles, they become caught in a showdown between a rogue game warden (Yancy Butler, Witchblade) and a demented poacher (Robert Englund, A Nightmare on Elm Street). It's the last serving of hysterical horror in a finale that shows terror is best served raw.
The Nightmare On Elm Street Collection (Five Disc Box Set) | DVD | (25/06/2001)
from £34.17 | Saving you £19.82 (36.70%) | RRP
The flagship horror film series of the second half of the 1980s was the Elm Street cycle, inaugurated in 1984 by Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street. A low-budget, high-imagination effort, the film revived the moribund teenage slasher genre by adding a fantastical premise (just as Craven's Scream would do 10 years later) playing post-modern games. A ghost story about a murdered murderer who can haunt the night terrors of the children of the mob who burned him to death, A Nightmare on Elm Street is the ultimate instance of horror taking its tone from a bad dream. The fact that the monster's powers are irrational is the film's greatest strength rather than a script weakness. Freddy Krueger, who was just plain Fred to start with, is the 80s monster par excellence, a razor-fingered, scarfaced pervert in a hideous jumper and battered hat, lurking in the shadows of the unconscious from which he emerged rather too often in the follow-ups. Craven made him scary, but the directors who followed treated him as the star and he gradually became a ridiculous, comic creation, more tiresome than terrifying. The sequels are what they are: none aspire to the status of the original, though A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors is a rip-roaring fantasy adventure that always pleases, and even the weakest entries (2 and 5) have their moments. From 3 onwards, the dreams become showpieces for the effects men, which makes for sequences at once startling and silly, but sadly bereft of the power to chill. As the 80s recede into the stuff of nostalgia television, other aspects of the series seem more prominent: like a parade of the ghastliest haircuts ever worn by human teenagers (Johnny Depp's cockatoo pompadour or the roach-girl's fluffy perm in 4 as the worst offenders) and several soundtrack album's worth of bland MTV tie-in pop music that never manages to be as memorable as the simple, nursery rhyme theme carried over movies.-- Kim Newman DVD extras. The most desirable add-on feature is a lively, informative commentary track on the original film, with contributions from Wes Craven Heather Langenkamp, John Saxon and cinematographer Jacques Haitkin; this was recorded for a US laserdisc release, and it's a shame that we don't get the outtakes and deleted scenes present on that version. Otherwise, it's the usual trailers, animated menus (all very imaginative) and cast and crew bios (with odd omissions - Nick Corri rates a write-up, but not Johnny Depp), and music videos keyed into sequels three to five, with clips from the films inter-cut with lousy rock and/or rap. A nice gimmick on all the discs is a "jump straight to a nightmare" feature, allowing instant access to the gruesome effects set-piece of your choice. All the discs are good-looking widescreen transfers, with rich sound and optional English sub-titles. Among the most notably absent extras, of course, are the sixth and seventh films, Rachel Talalay's Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare and, most importantly, Wes Craven's New Nightmare. -- Kim Newman

Freddy vs Jason | DVD | (26/01/2004)
from £4.05 | Saving you £15.00 (75.00%) | RRP
After 11 years in development hell and screenplay drafts by 13 different writers, the long-awaited smackdown of Freddy vs Jason finally arrived in cinemas in 2003. After making their respective debuts in Friday the 13th (1980) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), the hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees (Ken Kirzinger, replacing long-time Jason performer Kane Hodder) and razor-gloved Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) square off in a slasher-franchise combo-deal that only their most devoted fans will appreciate; it turns out this is a lightweight match in which nobody wins. It's an average entry in the histories of these horror icons, comparable to half of their previous sequels, and Bride of Chucky director Ronny Yu satisfies purists with plenty of gushing blood and mayhem when Freddy recruits Jason to slice 'n' dice the ill-fated teens who've forgotten Freddy's once-formidable reign of terror. While it logically connects the gruesome legacies of Nightmare's Elm Street and Friday's Camp Crystal Lake, this horror hybrid is shockingly uninspired. It briefly peaks when Freddy gives the unconscious Jason a dream-world pummelling, but ultimately, their showdown's a letdown --Jeff Shannon

Wes Craven's New Nightmare | DVD | (10/09/2001)
from £6.99 | Saving you £-0.47 (-4.70%) | RRP
Halfway through A New Nightmare Heather Langenkamp goes to visit Wes Craven to discuss resurrecting the Freddy Krueger series for one last film. Craven's script focuses on a malevolent demon that has escaped from the stories in which he was trapped because they have lost their power to scare. Sound familiar? This script-within-a-film refers, of course, to the real-life fate of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, and is an idea typical of this intelligent movie which successfully blurs the line between this horror film and its real-life production context. Langenkamp plays herself, in virtually her own life: a D-list actress unable to match the success she found in the original Nightmare on Elm Street films. She, like the rest of the cast and crew of the original films (also played by themselves--most notably Craven and Robert Englund, camping himself up as an adored celebrity and part-time "artist"), is haunted by dreams of the Freddy Krueger character. Craven's script reveals that if Freddy is not trapped within a story more powerful than the Elm Street sequels--i.e. this film--he will become real.New Nightmare is an interesting precursor to the Scream series, and it attempts to capitalise on its self-reflexivity in a similar way. The idea is that, having openly revealed that the rest of the Elm Street series were "only films", New Nightmare can then set about scaring your pants off. The biggest hindrance, however, is the Freddy character himself. Despite the fact that we are told that this is the "real" Freddy, rather than the cinematic incarnation we've seen many times before it is still difficult to shake off a persistent sensation of déja-vu. Freddy just isn't scary any more: his face looks a lot less gnarled than it used to be and even the once-terrifying claw seems to have lost its edge. Similarly, having hammered home the fact that this movie is real, those elements of the film which require a little more imagination--such as Freddy's body-stretching, the surreal scare sequences and the Gothic-fantasy finale--appear absurd. Thus, if certainly not as good as the original, New Nightmare is at least an intelligent, fresh and occasionally scary film: which makes it head and shoulders above most of its genre and certainly better than most of this series. --Paul Philpott

A Nightmare On Elm Street | DVD | (25/06/2001)

Nightmare on Elm Street is the only Elm street film that falls into the "really scary" category. A dead murderer returns in the dreams of the children of his old enemies, and torments them. Wes Craven tamps down the humour that would overtake the films and goes all out for shivers. There are several memorably surreal horror sequences involving tongued telephones and bottomless baths as Craven's unhealthy imagination runs riot. With Heather Langenkamp as the plucky Nancy, John Saxon and Ronee Blakely as her dim bulb parents, Amanda Wyss and young Johnny Depp as teen victims, and Robert Englund as "Fred" Krueger. -- Kim Newman

A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge | DVD | (25/06/2001)
from £8.99 | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge was a quick follow-up no one was exactly happy with. However this deserves some credit for trying to extend rather than repeat the original storyline. As opposed to the resourceful heroines of all the other Elm Street films, this is the one about the troubled male teenager worried that Freddy is out to possess his body and make his way back to reality. It's shot through with a heavy handed gay subtext, with male bodies ogled and sliced (for a change), stuck with a few truly ridiculous moments (the exploding budgie) and lapses into incoherence, but it opens with a great school bus sequence and makes the most of the infernal boiler room of Freddy's soul. With Clu Gulager and Hope Lange. Directed by Jack Sholder (The Hidden). -- Kim Newman
