Monsters, scares, and gore can only take a horror movie so far. Sound and music are also essential—which is why this brand new box set of the scores to the Nightmare on Elm Street films is such a perfect idea.


Death Waltz Records is releasing the set, which it’s calling the “Box of Souls.” It features the vinyl scores to the seven original films in the Nightmare on Elm Street series, complete with new liner notes, interviews, and stunning artwork by Mike Saputo. Above you get just a glimpse of one such piece but, below, you can see them all as well as the full set.


The scores are by Charles Bernstein, Christopher Young, Angelo Badalamenti, Craig Safan, Jay Ferguson, and J. Peter Robinson respectively, taking us from the original A Nightmare on Elm Street through Wes Craven’s New Nightmare.

The set costs $250 and will go on sale at 1pm EST on October 25 at this link.

New Nightmare is a true horror movie classic. It only gets the credit from hardcore fans, but most people either don’t remember it or haven’t seen it. The movie gave the franchise the respectful end of a well told story that it deserved. I can’t rave about it enough.

This artwork is beautiful, btw.
