All horror fans are well aware of the impact that Wes Craven’s (R.I.P.) A Nightmare on Elm Street made when it hit the horror scene in the 1980’s. One key element to any horror film and its atmosphere is the music. A Nightmare on Elm Street is no exception to this rule. Lucky for us and all horror fans, the music in the film is original, spooky, and creates the perfect theme for our favorite nightmare slasher.
With all that praise to the music of the classic film series, yesterday the news broke about an EIGHT disc boxed set being released by Varèse Sarabande. The boxset will cover every score dating back to the 1984 original release all the way to our favorite on screen battle Freddy Vs. Jason. Lucky for us, Craven, and Freddy, the re-make will not be included. When Craven was asked what his least favorite Nightmare was, he did not hesitate with his answer which was the re-make.
The best feature about this box set is the awesome packaging. It is dressed very nicely in a Freddy Kruger sweater, which you can see below. If you are a Nightmare fan, like most of us, you better head on over to the website by CLICKING HERE now, because there are only 2000 copies available. They started their pre-sale TODAY! If for some odd reason they do not sell out by October 16th, the CD box set will be available for immediate purchase.
If you are lucky enough to be in the Los Angeles area on October 17th, jump on the pre-order through Dark Delicacies (3512 W. Magnolia Blvd. Burbank, CA 91505). You will have the opportunity to get the box set signed and meet composers Craig Safan, Christopher Young, and Charles Bernstein upon pickup!
