A Soundtrack that lives beyond the film
Catherine Bryant | Kilmore, Victoria Australia | 07/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"No-one can walk away from this film without being moved by this score- one of may all time favourites. The presence of this richly layered score is what made this such a strong successful film. I am edified by the absence of this composer on the otherwise brilliant Wes Craven's New Nightmare. Why??? Had Berstein scored this film it would have been a classic. Wherever you are mr Bernstein, your work here is absolutely inspiring, memorable."
The soundtrack makes the movie scary...

"John Carpenter in the DVD Commentary for Halloween admits that Halloween wouldn't be scary if it weren't for the music and this is true for "A Nightmare On Elm Street" Soundtrack by Charles Bernstein. This is one of my favorite soundtracks. The soundtrack was recorded using synthesizers or keyboards. There is some electric guitar on some tracks but it's mostly synths. Most soundtracks from low budget horror movies were recorded this way to obviously save money. But just try to imagine the nightmare "Nancy" has at the school were "Freddy" is chasing her in the boiler room with out the music!!! It just wouldn't work! I'm glad this soundtrack has finally been re-released and remastered! It's a must!"
