Mini Review: 
Sadly, there was nothing too exciting about this one. If you are a collector of Nightmare stuff then go grab it but if you have seen the movie it is a pretty pointless read. The manga follows the movie almost exactly - singing and all.

The illustrations are very similar to the movie stills and the panels are all done very well. I am not sure what I was expecting from it... it was nice to read the story but it was the same story I already know. As a collectors item this would be fun to have in my collection and I think that is what they are going for anyway.
