Press Reviews

A Nightmare on Elm Street (New Line) "...a modern film music classic."

"Charles Bernstein emerged as one of the most influential horror film composers... His scary electronic music for the first A Nightmare On Elm Street film, featuring an unusual mix of scary sounds and pop influences as well as one of the most instantly recognizable horror themes ever written, is a modern film music classic."

Out of the Ashes (Showtime Cable)

"Charles Bernstein should receive another Emmy nomination for his score for the Showtime movie Out Of The Ashes. I am familiar with quite a few of the composers' scores and this one is definitely one of his strongest."

A FEW OTHER REVIEWS:

"Charles Bernstein's score is lushly romantic when warranted, in an effectively subdued jazz vein when not."

The Hollywood Reporter

"Charles Bernstein's musical score easily supports both the romance and the comedy."

The Hollywood Reporter

"Charles Bernstein has no musical peer in this kind of rural melodrama, and his vibrant score contributes much of the life of the film."

The Hollywood Reporter

"That [the comedy] is as amusing as it is, is due largely to Charles Bernstein's witty score. He draws on the schmaltziest of gypsy violins to set a tongue-in-cheek tone that holds the movie together."

The Silver Screener

"Charles Bernstein's advantageous music is another feather in his extremely versatile cap."

The Hollywood Reporter
