Freddy’s Nightmares soundtrack is coming to Terror Vision vinyl

A couple months ago, we looked back at the Nightmare on Elm Street television series Freddy’s Nightmares with an episode of our video series Horror TV Shows We Miss (check that episode out in the embed above). Now, shockingly, we actually have some Freddy’s Nightmares news to share! Terror Vision Records and Video teamed up with our friends at Bloody Disgusting to announce that they are bringing the show’s original soundtrack to vinyl and will be accepting orders at starting at 12pm Eastern on November 12.

This is the first time the Freddy’s Nightmares soundtrack will be available on any format, and there will be a few options to choose from:

a blood-soaked “Best of” LP, or a triple LP that comes complete with a full Freddy’s Nightmares episode guide.

There will also be a bundle for sale that will include the following:


4 Holographic Stickers

Episode Guide

2 Enamel Pins

“Bootleg Freddy” Sharp Hand Joe gives the details in the video embedded below.

Freddy’s Nightmares ran for two seasons, from 1988 to 1990. Here’s the synopsis:

Based on the Nightmare on Elm Street film series, “Freddy’s Nightmares: A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Series” is an anthology show hosted by Freddy Krueger. Krueger sometimes appeared in the episodes, but often he just hosted the strange, “Twilight Zone”-like stories about the residents of Springwood’s nightmares. Episodes consist of two stories, usually with a small character from the first half of the episode becoming the focus of the second half. In an unusual move for an anthology series, many episodes had sequels that documented the further adventures of characters who had appeared in previous episodes.

There are a total of 44 episodes of the show, directed by the likes of Mick Garris, Jason Lives‘ Tom McLoughlin, Halloween 4‘s Dwight H. Little, Return of the Living Dead 2‘s Ken Wiederhorn, and even Robert Englund. Tobe Hooper directed the pilot episode, which was a prequel that took us back to the days before Freddy Krueger was a dream stalker, when he was a regular serial killer who ended up being burned alive by a vengeful mob.

Only a handful of episodes have ever received a home video release. In the decades since Freddy’s Nightmares went off the air, reruns have been shown on in2tv, Chiller, and El Rey Network.
