On October 16th, Varèse Sarabande will be making all of your nightmares come true with ‘A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET’ 8-CD box set. Hurry up and get yours though because it is limited to 2000 units. This deluxe package contains all 8 soundtracks from the original series, which equals over 8 hours of music, including almost 3 hours of bonus tracks!
We were introduced to the late, great Wes Craven’s Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) in 1984 with ‘A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.’ It follows the story of Krueger, who was a former child-killer seeking revenge against the parents who burned him, by haunting the dreams of their teenage children and killing them in their dreams. The series has earned almost half a billion dollars at the box office, and boasts some of the most beloved, nightmarish themes from composers including: Charles Bernstein (‘Wes Craven’s A Nightmare On Elm Street’), Christopher Young (‘A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge’), Angelo Badalamenti (‘A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors’), Craig Safan (‘A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master’), Jay Ferguson (‘A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child’), Brian May (‘Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare’), J. Peter Robinson (‘Wes Craven’s New Nightmare’), and Graeme Revell (‘Freddy Vs. Jason’).
If you think that is a lot of music, there’s more! The box-set also includes a suite from the video game featured in the film ‘Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare,’ and the theme from Henry Manfredini’s ‘FRIDAY THE 13TH series,’ as heard in the film ‘FREDDY VS. JASON’ (with performances by the band Machine Head).
You can find out more information about the limited edition 8-CD box set, including a full Track-List, and pre-order it from Friday, September 18th here on Varèse Sarabande. The box-set will be officially released on October 16th.
