It's Halloween season, and New Orleans-based Waxwork Records is offering a tasty sonic treat for fans of the '80s cult horror flicks House and House II: The Second Story.
Today, a new limited-edition, double-album set for these haunting creature features' scores by Harry Manfredini is being welcomed into Waxwork's fearful family of remastered original motion picture soundtracks, joining recent classic score releases like The Thing, Creepshow 2, and Don't Look Now.
As in previous Waxwork offerings, both House records are perfectly pressed on premium 180-gram colored vinyl and come in two styles: "Big Ben" (Metallic Gold and Brown with Black Smoke) and "Crystal Skull" (Crystal Clear Vinyl with Blue Smoke). The entire prestige set is delivered with deluxe packaging, old-style tip on gatefold jackets, and new cover and interior artwork by Gary Pullin.
The silly-scary House movies hold a special place in Waxwork founders Kevin Bergeron and Suzy Soto's hearts.
"We grew up in the '80s and early '90s, so cult B-horror movies like House and House II were on steady rotation in our households," Bergeron told SYFY WIRE.
"Scary enough to rub shoulders with the big guns of the 1980s horror films like Evil Dead 2, yet comedic and whimsical enough where our parents didn't mind us staying up late to watch on a school night. We are pumped to release this set as our very first double soundtrack album with all new artwork. Everything has been re-mastered specifically for vinyl. We have had the massive pleasure of working with composer Harry Manfredini in the past on his Friday the 13th scores, so it was a no brainer for us to dive into his other work and release it as a deluxe vinyl set. We think you will absolutely love the final result!"
This awesome new House premium vinyl set is destined to spin out some spooky tracks at your home Hallloween costume bash this year and can be purchased at the Waxwork Records site HERE for $35.
