Bernstein discusses the story behind his legendary original score for Wes Craven’s A Nightmare On Elm Street.
“Creating music for Wes Craven’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street” was one of the truly satisfying and challenging experiences in my career,” Bernstein said in a statement. “When the film was released, I never thought that Elm Street and Freddy Krueger would go on to become the cultural phenomenon that we know today.”
He added, “It’s gratifying to see how horror fans have kept Elm Street’s music alive and how the themes I composed for the film still seem to resonate with so many people.”
