Ordered this today. I hate paying more that $10 for any DVD, but I really want to have a decent looking version of this while it can be had. My employer sells it for direct home shipment for under $18 and free shipping with membership. Should have it by Wednesday.

Mine shipped from CDWOW yesterday. Took longer to get in stock but CDWOW is the cheapest I have seen it as they were doing a 10% off all stock day and this came to 13 with free P&P. Cant wait to see this.

Got mine today. The copy on the back cover is full of silly passive aggressive snark. Plus the lead actor's name is mis-spelled on the credits bar at the bottom. Still, I am glad to finally have it.

hehe , yeah Code Red have had a lot of typos on their covers with the cast and crew. They spelled Eric Stoltz's name incorrectly on the front cover of Running Hot, and put the director's name as Paul Carter (it's Peter Carter) on the back cover credit block of Rituals.

I defend Code Red a lot, but yeah. The misspelling on covers of proper names and such is a bit...well. I know Bill's grammar on boards doesn't need to be spellchecked, but perhaps the disc cases would benefit from such. lol.

Also, just ordered Nightmare along with Sledgehammer, so I should be seeing them later next week.

Got this yesterday from amazon - I've watched it before on an old VHS but the picture quality on the three master's we get with this box set are miles better. I still find 'Maniac' far more disturbing that 'Nightmare' but Nightmar ein its own right is a great horror/slasher flic.

really? (the following contain SPOILERS if you have never watched Nightmare before).

Disturbed man suffers from flashbacks to earlier murders he commited (we see minor flashbacks until the whole story 'flashback' at the finale is revealed.) Can't tell reality from what he did or didn't do?
Treated with experimental drugs which subdue flashbacks.
Doctors hail it as a success.
Is wrongly released back into the community.
Alter ego re-appears - goes missing.
Starts killing people along the way (which feeds his disturbed mind etc) to finding where his wife/child (C.J.) live.
Flash back revealed which is the root cause of George's psychotic episodes.
Gets shot by C.J. a few times (C.J. doesn't realise it's his father).
Man unmasked is revealed to be Tatum and C.J.s mum says at the end "It's my Husband!" Cue woman screaming ~ cue Dolby surround.
Cue C.J. probably being funked in the brain after all the trauma and Nightmare 2 being released (you see him smiling at the end)
The End
Cue Tom Savini denying he ever had anything to do with it and saying that the picture of him on-set was a Photoshop.

Yeah he never denied saying he had anything to do with it or claimed the photo had been made in Photoshop - just that he had consulted on the special effects and wasn't actually part of the special effects team as the film advertised. He fully admits to being on set and consulting those who did the special effects, but claims he never actually did any of them.

Savini told me in 2000 at a screening of Creepshow that he had nothing to do with it and that they just stuck his name on it. Maybe that was when he was still a little more bitter about it back then.

It was just a bit tongue in cheek me saying that

Anyone else having this problem? I'm thinking I may have a defective disc, but just want to make sure before I return it....

On the first disc and on the widescreen version only (nothing freezes on the full frame version?) the scene where the killer is in the porn palace and is in the room with the stripper and the shutter windows with other people watching, it always seems to freeze and skip to the next chapter at the point in which the shutter starts to go down on him after he pays the girl.

Hmm...thanks guys.

Anyone else? I Would like to have a few more responses before I decide to return it. Really hate the idea of having a faulty disc.

I gave it a run through, both with the commentary and without, and had no issues. Sorry to hear, dude. That blows.
