Fans of the Nightmare on Elm Street series are probably going to want to pay attention to this. Varèse Sarabande will be releasing an incredible 8-CD box set next month that will feature not only the original scores for the first 8 films in the series, but there will be close to 3 hours of bonus tracks, which puts this release at over 8 hours of nightmarish music! Yes, the price is a bit steep at $99.98, but if you really consider what you’re getting, that isn’t a bad deal at all, considering some scores run you $15 to $20 each. Here you’re getting 8 scores with tons of bonus tracks. So well worth the investment.
The composers represented here in the box set are 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)
Plus, the set comes with a special knitted Freddy sweater that covers the outer box. Nice touch. There will only be 2000 of this being produced, so if you’re even remotely interested, I would get your order in now before you miss out. You can place your order HERE, which will start to ship out on October 16th. Don’t miss out!
Also, Dark Delicacies in California is hosting a signing event for this release in October, where you could get this same set at the same price, but signed by Christopher Young, Charles Bernstein, Craig Safan and more to be announced. Kind of hard to pass up,don’t you think? You can get more information about this event by clicking HERE.
