To celebrate Halloween, we’re giving away the contemporary reimagining of the seminal horror classic ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ for this week’s Blu-ray Monday competition.

With his tattered, rusty glove of knives, psychotic slasher Freddy Krueger is back and he’s more disturbing than ever. Brilliantly depicted by Oscar nominee Jackie Earle Haley, he is the complete embodiment of evil. And it’s terrifying.

When presented in the pristine, high-definition picture and sound you expect from Blu-ray (all the better to hear and see Freddy with!) this prize is so scary it will make you do exactly what it says on the box – never sleep again!
