    Glad to see this series is getting a DVD release somewhere in the world, even if we'll have to wait some time before an R1 release.

    Can't wait to get a hold of these imports.

    Slightly off topic, I know there was a recent thread on this, but I think it's probably gone dead. I was hoping that someone could answer anyway. I was thinking of getting the "Elm Street" Boxed set. I know it can be had someplaces for as little as 50+ Dollars. For that price, are any parts of the set discontinued (3-D "Freddy's Dead" ending, booklet etc.)

    WillG,it's the exact same boxset.The reason for the $50 price at some places is because it's from Canada,so the exchange rate is more favorable to America.

    Yeah I know it's the Canadian thing, but I've seen it cheap in some places in the U.S. as well. so just curious. Thanks

    Any idea as to what episodes are on this? I might pick it up if it has the first episode (which is about Krugar's origins). I remember watching this show when I was a kid! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    In general, I'd say "Freddy's Nightmares" was a pretty awful show... but I'd still buy this if it came to region 1/NTSC. I'm that desparate for horror anthology shows on disc (plus, I'm a huge Elm Street fan, anyway).

    Now, where the heck is "Tales from the Crypt," "Amazing Stories," "Tales from the Dark Side," or the 80s's "The New Twilight Zone"?

    This is AWESOME news! I used to love watching Freddy's Nightmares when I was growing up. Didn't it come on with War of the Worlds? Both of those shows used to really freak me out.

    Interesting that Wonder Woman and Dukes of Hazzard are also on that R2 list of Warner releases.

    I just checked to see what Warner lists for R1 from June 1st and onward. None of the above R2 titles are on the R1 list...at least not yet.


    In fact, it's not a long list yet, and all stuff we already know about:

    Street DatePriceReleases

    06/10/03$39.98 Arliss: The Best of Arliss (DVD)

    07/01/03$24.98 Doctor Who: Resurrection of the Daleks (DVD)
    07/15/03$29.98 Prehistoric America (DVD)


    I guess there's still plenty of time for R1 versions of these. I'll take all three shows, personally! [​IMG]

    I thought that the show was pretty much a deadly bore; but I gave up after the first season. Did it improve?

    I've got a few of these on VHS when they were released by Warner.

    I always thought it was odd how each 1-hour show was clearly seperated into 30 minute segments. Same characters, but the second half was almost like watching an entirely different episode.

    I also liked the episodes where Freddy was directly involved rather than his occasional commentary.

    i would defineately rent these, but I don't remember them being all that great. Most were pretty boring and didn't even involve Freddy. I enjoyed Friday the 13th: The Series much more...also had nothing to do with the movies but had better stories.

    I myself would love to see Nightmare Cafe, a very short lived Robert Englund hosted series that I thought was excellent.

    It would be nice to see full season sets of Freddy's Nightmares as well.
