Posted on: June 14, 2006 at 1:07 AM

At a time when horror films are enjoying a resurgence of popularity, New Line Home Entertainment is going into its vault to bring to DVD one of the most notorious horror movies ever made. The original 1984 A Nightmare on Elm Street, which spawned eight feature films, a TV series and a new wave of teen slasher movies, is being prepped for a special-edition DVD release Sept. 26 as part of the studio’s premier Infinifilm line. Using the Infinifilm option, viewers can access behind-the-scenes documentaries, interviews and other extras as they are watching the film, so the bonus materials can be digested in context. Among the bonus features New Line is preparing are audio essays with director Wes Craven and star Robert Englund; documentaries on the franchise’s origins and its legacy; a trivia challenge; and a making-of feature. “Many DVD features that are now considered the standards of the home entertainment experience were born at New Line, and we continue to push the envelope,” said Stephen Einhorn, president and COO of New Line Home Entertainment.
