Waxwork records has just reissued its stunning Creepshow deluxe soundtrack. The horror imprint originally released the soundtrack in 2014 and 2015, and it sold out quickly. But with the recent release of their pressing of Creepshow 2, it seems like the right time for the original soundtrack to crawl out of the grave.

From Waxwork Records:

"This deluxe 2017 re-press of Creepshow features high quality packaging with heavyweight old-style tip on gatefold jackets with a built-in booklet page, director liner notes from George A. Romero, composer liner notes from John Harrison, 34 retro synth-horror driven tracks, 180 gram colored vinyl, printed inserts, and is loaded with artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin."

Waxwork located the original 1982 master tapes in a Pittsburgh attic, and remixed and remastered specifically for the vinyl pressing from those tapes. You even have your choice of vinyl colors: Lunkhead (green with black smoke) or Kill-Lights (dark red with blue smoke).

Creepshow is a horror anthology written by Stephen King and directed by the late George Romero. An homage to the EC horror comics of the 1950s, the five short films appear between wrap-around segments in which a young boy gets in trouble for reading horror comics.
