The music of Elm Street is a huge part of the series, each film having it’s own unique sound and feel. Charles Bernstein created the original score and Freddy’s main theme that was used throughout the series, his score to the first film is nothing short of a landmark horror score and utterly defines American horror in the 80’s in super downbeat, eerie and metalilc. Christopher Young (Hellraiser) supplied the score to part 2 and takes the themes down a more orchestral route layering sounds upon sounds to create a truly scary listen, Angelo Badalamenti (Twin Peaks) Composed the score to part 3, here he crafts moody textures and a woodwind section to create a dreamlike score thats fits the theme of part 3 perfectly. Craig Safan was bought on to compose part 4 and with the help of a synthclavier synthesiser he created one of the craziest horror scores of the 80s, yeah sure it scary and creepy but it is also a ton of fun and totally unique. For part 5 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 Australian composer Brian May mixes electronic and orchestrations to stunning effect and for the final film in the series A New Nightmare J.Peter Robinson gives us a super lush orchestrated nightmare that harks back to Bernstein’s original.
