A Nightmare on Elm Street, a classic horror movie from the 80s. Six sequels were to follow. A movie, which together with "Hellraiser", reanimated the declared dead genre and invigorated it. The director was Wes Craven, whose debut was "Last House On The Left" and who in 1996 with "Scream" resuscitated the genre again.
This movie is one of the rare exceptions where a movie in Germany runs longer than in the USA. In the USA the movie was censored in order to receive an R-rating - in Germany it was published in the Unrated version.
The newly published German DVD-Box by Warner unfortunately contains only the R-Rated version of the movie. Hence, the unrated version remains a rare exclusiveness of the old German FSK 18 tape.
US - DVD 1:31.10 minutes NTSC (incl. end credits)
FSK 18 Tape: 1:26:55 minutes PAL(incl. end credits)
Compared are the US-DVD (equivalent to the R-Rated version and identical to the German DVD of the "Nightmare On Elm Street"-Box by NewLine Cinema) with the uncut German Tape by CBS-Fox (rated FSK 18), which is equivalent to the unrated version.
All runtimes refer to the US-DVD.
