Treat your turntable this holiday season with vinyl releases of the soundtracks for 1979's The Warriors and 2015's Krampus from Waxwork Records. Remember, this is the company that found, restored, and sold the original Night of the Living Dead (thought to be lost forever) not too long ago. These folks know what they're doing when it comes to pressing records and bringing them to the public.

Up first is The Warriors, a 1979 cult classic from director Walter Hill set in a future where New York is divided into territories of different gangs. Even those who haven't seen the film know the famous line delivered by a glass-bottle-tapping David Patrick Kelly, "Warriors... come out to play-ee-ay!!"

The double 180 gram vinyl LP from Waxwork includes the licensed musical soundtrack (with such tracks as Joe Walsh's "In the City"), as well as the original score by Barry DeVorzon. There's also artwork from Marvel Comics vet Dave Rapoza (Secret Wars).

This set can be purchased today for $40 a pop.

"Waxwork worked directly from the original master tapes of both the original 1979 soundtrack and film score to bring audiences a brand new transfer of every musical cue heard in the movie, for the very first time on vinyl," reads the official release.

If you're feeling the darker side of the Yuletide spirit, then consider the deluxe release of the soundtrack for Michael Dougherty's Krampus, a cautionary tale of what happens when you don't have the proper Christmas attitude.

Also a double LP of 180 gram vinyl, the Krampus OST comes with the original score by Douglas Pipes (Trick 'r Treat), artwork by Hollywood Reporter Key Art Awards-winner Justin Erickson, liner notes from Dougherty and Pipes, and (here's the best part) gingerbread-scented jackets!

Not even the polar opposite of Santa Claus could resist such an awesome package. You can pre-order yours today for $45 a pop and have it ship in early January.
