INTRODUCTION
------------

The Nightmare On Elm Street Collection is a box set containing eight DVDs
(the seven films in their original Widescreen format and a supplement disc
entitled "The Nightmare Series Encyclopedia"), two pairs of "A Nightmare
On Elm Street" 3-D glasses (for use with the "Freddy's Dead" DVD), and a
32 page full-color booklet with facts and information about all seven
films.  All this is contained in a beautifully designed box.

With this document, and Tripps/Kernunrex's magnificent FAQ/Walkthrough & map
(found at http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/dvd/game/918334.html), you will have
all of the information needed to see, hear, and play everything included on all
of the DVDs in the box set.

By the way, if you have information not already in this document, feel
free to share it with me.  You will, of course, be credited.

================================================================================

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
-------------------------

** AUDIO COMMENTARY **

The first four minutes of the DVD audio commentary are completely
different from the original laserdisc audio commentary.  The rest is
virtually the same, though the DVD contains a few seconds more of
comments.

I asked Elite Entertainment, the company that produced the audio
commentary track for the original laserdisc, "How many different audio
commentary tracks did you guys record?"  Their response was, "Only one.
However, New Line might have edited it differently. We supplied them with
the full uncut master."

================================================================================

FREDDY'S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE
----------------------------------

** THE 2-D AND 3-D ENDINGS **

Both the 2-D and 3-D endings are included.  To switch between the two, you
*MUST* select "Play Movie" from the main DVD menu.  This is the ONLY way
to switch between the two.

Sometimes it's actually possible to select the 2-D ending, go back into
the menu, go to Special Features, and select "Jump To The 3-D Ending" and
see the 2-D ending instead.  I don't remember how I originally got it to
do this a few years ago as I'm unable to reproduce the effect now.

================================================================================

THE NIGHTMARE SERIES ENCYCLOPEDIA
---------------------------------

** DVD-ROM TRIVIA GAME **

These are the correct codes to enter in, in order to play the final game.

1 = 1984-1-nancy-Z
2 = 1985-2-jesse-R
3 = 1987-3-neil-A
4 = 1988-4-alice-I
5 = 1989-5-amanda-K
6 = 1991-6-maggie-C
7 = 1994-7-wes-I

I think it's obviously how the codes were created.  The first part is the
year in which that movie was released.  The second part is the film's
number in relation to the entire series.  The third part is the name of a
main character from that film.  The last part is simply a letter.  I have
no idea what the significance of the letter is.  Perhaps if you take all
the letters (Z-R-A-I-K-C-I) and unscramble them, you'll get a word.  If
anyone knows, please let me know.

Anyway, if you win the final game, you are given this URL to go to:

http://www.nightmareonelmstreet.com/dreamworld/win8/enter.htm

In case the contest ends or the page is taken down, besides the entry
form, this is what is/was written on the page:

"Congratulations!  You made it through all of the Dream World games,
entered the codes correctly, and became a Master of Dream World! Now, fill
out the entry form below for the chance to win fabulous prizes from New
Line Cinema. Full contest rules are in the DVD box set, but remember you
can only enter once! Any subsequent entries after the first will be
disqualified (And, we'll send the Freddy snake from NOES 3 to your house,
so be careful!)."


** LABYRINTH - HINTS & ITEM LOCATIONS **

Although you can get this information from Tripps/Kernunrex's FAQ/Walkthrough,
you *might* find it easier to have this information listed here - especially
if you don't want to use a walkthrough to guide you through the game.
Also, you can refer to the information here when you absolutely need it,
without having to wade through a long walkthrough.

-- The REMOTE CONTROL is located in the morgue, to the left of the
entrance.

-- The MEMORABILIA ROOM KEY is located in the room directly across from
the morgue.

-- The BOILER ROOM KEY is located on the table in the workshop.

-- The age of the person in the morgue is 16.

-- 40 people died in all of the Nightmare On Elm St. movies.

-- In the series of three lights that opens the door, the last two lights
must be lit in order for the door to open.

-- The "Fire Exit" door holds the second alternate ending to Nightmare 1.
The door is opened by finding the correct pattern from the starting
diamond (that being the diamond that is first lit when you press UP from
the highlighted arrow).  From the starting diamond move the cursor in the
following pattern: right, up, left, up, right, right, down, right.  When
the pattern is complete the door will "open".  (Some people say that you
need to press Enter after each move, but this isn't necessary.  If you do
press Enter, it will still work.  So either way is fine.)  For more
information (though it's really not necessary), check out New Line
Cinema's webpage about the solution:
http://www.newline.com/he/dvd/tech_NOESbox.html


** LABYRINTH - FREDDY'S SURPRISE CAMEO APPEARANCE **

At the beginning of the game, if you wait awhile (instead of proceeding
down the hallway), Freddy jumps out into the hallway and says, "Come to
Freddy," to which someone (Nancy perhaps?) replies "God Damn you!"  Then
Freddy scamps into another room.

** INDEX FOR NIGHTMARE 1 **

Everything listed here is also in "Primetime" EXCEPT for:

-- Theatrical Trailer
-- Making The Glove
-- The Rotating Room


** HIDDEN PRODUCTION STAFF PHOTO **

On the main menu, click on the New Line logo to view the DVD credits.  Click on
the word "Belief" to view the credits for that company.  While one of the two
arrows are highlighted on the Belief credits first page, press Up or Down on
your remote.  To exit the photo, just press Enter on your remote.

Alternatively, go to Title 4, Chapter 18 to see the still photo.
(Most DVD players allow you to directly access specific titles and chapters,
usually by using the numerical keypad on your remote control. Check your
player's instruction manual to find out if your player can do this and HOW
to do it.)

** FOOTAGE NOT LISTED ON THE INDEX **

The inside of the DVD's jacket says that the index is "an unabridged,
clickable listing of the disc's content."  This simply is not true as
there is a lot of footage NOT listed in the index.  All of this footage
can be viewed from within the Labyrinth, but if you wish to access it
directly, here is the list of footage and the chapter numbers.  ALL OF THE
FOOTAGE IS IN *TITLE 1*.  As stated above, check your player's instruction
manual to find out if your player can access specific titles and chapters
and HOW to do it if it can.

          rattle."

** RANDOM FREDDY QUIPS **

In the Labyrinth, inside the Memorabilia Room on the right side, is a giant
Freddy head mounted on the wall that has a clickable right eye.  When selected,
1 of 27 random quips are displayed.  If you'd like to view all of these quips,
here is the list with the chapter numbers.  ALL OF THESE ARE IN *TITLE 1*.
As stated above, check your player's instruction manual to find out if your
player can access specific titles and chapters and HOW to do it if it can.

Almost all of the quips are available in two chapters.  The first is the
animated tongue, the second is the still image of the quip text.  So I'm listing
them in pairs.  Only the first one doesn't have an animated tongue segment.

CHAPTERS
     380 - If there are two EVIL'S i'll try the one that I haven't done before.
 381/382 - Answer the phone.
 383/384 - Avoid large heavy objects traveling at a high rate of speed.
 385/386 - Bon Appétit, Bitch.
 387/388 - At anytime you can dream anything you please, trouble is you can't
           please every dream.
 389/390 - Be careful of a monkey on your back.  He is cursed and will kill you.
 391/392 - How sweet fresh meat.
 393/394 - Come home to Elm St.
 395/396 - Death is just a fad that I started.
 397/398 - He who dies with the most toys still dies.
 399/400 - Whatever you do don't fall asleep.
 401/402 - 69% of Americans think they should eat more fish.
 403/404 - Fear finds company in dark places.
 405/406 - Fight fire with fire.
 407/408 - Hate is the dark side of love, and just as powerful.
 409/410 - How long have you been awake?
 411/412 - [Same as 391/392]
 413/414 - It's A Gusher.
 415/416 - Kung Fu this bitch!
 417/418 - When you lick an envelope do you ever wonder what that is your
           tasting?
 419/420 - Life is like a box of souls, there is always one to steal when you
           need one.
 421/422 - Everything is better with monosodium glutamate.
 423/424 - Reach out and touch someone.
 425/426 - The movie is real.
 427/428 - Stop completely at the next stop sign you come to, or the results
           could be catastrophic.
 429/430 - You gotta stop that kind of dreaming.
 431/432 - It is safer waiting in line behind a serial killer than waiting in
           front of one.
 433/434 - While dreaming stay away from the boiler room.
 435/436 - [Same as 395/396]

I don't really have a place for this, and I'm not even sure if it's worth
mentioning, but while searching for the Freddy Quips, I found where the
Inventory screens are stored: Title 1, Chapters 98-105.  Normally to see
these screens in the Labyrinth, you'd have to get any of the three items then
backtrack to the first screen and click on the "?".  Since there are only three
items, it's kind of pointless to even have an Inventory Screen, but it does add
to the game-like nature of the Labyrinth.
