Waxwork Records has announced the release of the Get Out Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Music By Michael Abels.

Written and directed by Jordan Peele, Get Out is the critically acclaimed 2017 American horror film starring Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams. The film received numerous accolades and won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. It was also nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor for Kalluya.

This is the directorial debut of accomplished actor and long time horror-fanatic, Peele as well as being the debut score from Abels.

Included in the new deluxe double LP release of Get Out are exclusive liner notes in the form of an in depth essay by Peele that illustrates the director's first meeting with Michael Abels, their approach to the film's music, and how it all came together to conjure a new sound. "I had some ideas. I envisioned distinctly black voices harmonically creating an unnatural sound. The absence of hope. The void of the voiceless."

Get Out Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features the complete soundtrack by composer Michael Abels, deluxe packaging, new artwork by Leslie Herman, a printed insert with exclusive liner notes by Jordan Peele, 180 gram "Garden Party" green marbled vinyl, and old style tip-on gatefold jackets with satin coating.

Posted in Frightfest, Interviews, Saturday 15th September 2018
Ezequiel Endelman and Leandro Montejano

FrightFest 2018 exposed attendees to horror from all over the world and one that made an incredibly stylish and retro impact was the superb giallo inspired shocker, Crystal Eyes. Here the co-writers and co-directors Ezequiel Endelman and Leandro Montejano tell us all about this affectionate love letter to the classics of the 80s.

Where did the idea for Crystal Eyes come from?

Crystal Eyes was supposed to be the third episode of our web-series called No Podras Dormir Esta Noche (You Won't Sleep Tonight) which paid homage to different horror sub genres in each episode, and eventually it turned into a feature film. We love Giallo si...

Amazonia: The Catherine Miles Story
88 Films
Certificate 18

Known around the world under several different titles such as White Slave, Cannibal Holocaust II, Blonde Captive and Forest Slave, Amazonia: The Catherine Miles Story was one of the last hurrahs of the Italian Cannibal movie genre. Like most gut-munchers it claims to be based on fact, but the real fact here is that its more melodrama then splatter movie. This isn't a bad thing at all.

Amazonia: The Catherine Miles Story tells the story of a western blonde (Elvire Audrey) who is captured, stripped and tormented by a group of jungle head-hunters. Can she escape from this tribe or will s...

Another tasty piece from 88 Films, Popcorn.
Posted in News, Saturday 15th September 2018
Popcorn Bluray cover

The latest title in the superb Slasher Classics line from 88 Films is a true legend of the genre, Popcorn.

Canada took the slasher movie to the next level when the country produced the trendsetting Black Christmas in 1974, at the height of what has become known as 'Canuxploitation'. Later shockers from the nation of moose, Mounties and maple syrup included the equally effective My Bloody Valentine (1981) and Happy Birthday to Me (1981) but by the turn of the eighties the terror-trend was drying up... at least until the plasma-spilling shocks of Popcorn in 1991!

This is Canadian slice and dice action par excellence - and returns to the good old days of splashe...

It's no joke, cult classic Harlequin is coming to Blu-ray

Harlequin Blu-ray cover

For fans of Ozploitation it is the likes of Mad Max (1980) or even the trash-tastic Turkey Shoot (1982) that may first pop into many a horror hound's mind - however, the cycle offered so much more and never is this clearer than with the surrealist shocks of Harlequin (1980) a true genre standout that was also released under the more ominous moniker of Dark Forces and is being unleashed on October 8th.

In this oddball mix of sci-fi, horror and political espionage, a mysterious healer appears in the abode of a leading American senator who finds that his terminally ill son is quickly cured of his leukaemia. The appreciative politician opts to keep this puzzling pres...
