Something truly epic to pick up in time for Halloween night.

Available to all A Nightmare on Elm Street fans this Wednesday is Mondo and Death Waltz’s new “Box of Souls” 8XLP box set, which includes the soundtracks to all seven films in the franchise!

A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the most successful and beloved horror franchises in history and we are thrilled and honored to be releasing the entire series as a vinyl box set featuring 8 LPs from the original series, all remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin with incredible original artwork from Mike Saputo and a 12-page booklet featuring extensive liner notes and interviews with key composers and cast members.

Pressed on 180 Gram black vinyl. Featuring liner notes from Charles Bernstein, Mark Patton, Jack Sholder, Ira Heiden, Craig Safan, Lisa Wilcox, Jay Ferguson, and Charles Brigden.

The music of Elm Street is a huge part of the series, each film having its own unique sound and feel. Charles Bernstein created the original score, and Freddy’s main theme that was used throughout the series. Christopher Young supplied the score to FREDDY’S REVENGE, and takes the themes down a more orchestral route, layering sounds upon sounds to create a truly scary listen. Angelo Badalamenti composed the score for DREAM WARRIORS. Here he crafts moody textures and a woodwind section to create a dreamlike score. Craig Safan was bought on to compose THE DREAM MASTER, and with the help of a synth-clavier synthesizer he created one of the craziest horror scores of the ’80s. For THE DREAM CHILD, Jay Ferguson delivers a synth-heavy score with nods to fairground music and layers of church organs and weird choral samples. For THE FINAL NIGHTMARE, Brian May mixes electronic and orchestrations to stunning effect. In NEW NIGHTMARE, J. Peter Robinson gives us a super lush orchestrated nightmare that hearkens back to Bernstein’s original.

Featuring original artwork from Mike Saputo and a 12-page booklet featuring extensive liner notes and interviews with key composers and cast members.

“Box of Souls” is priced at $250 via Mondo.
