Release Schedule

May
Zombi 2 – aka Zombie Flesh Eaters composed by Fabio Frizzi
The first time this classic soundtrack to the notorious Lucio Fulci video nasty has ever been made available on vinyl to collectors. The Zombi 2 score is one of the holy grails of Italian cinema, with the maestro Fabio Frizzi delivering a dizzyingly brilliant composition that holds its own against anything composed by the likes of Morricone or Goblin. Cover art by legendary UK poster artist Graham Humphreys, responsible for the original cinema posters for The Evil Dead, Nightmare On Elm Street 1-5 and Return Of The Living Dead.

Exclusive sleeve notes from composer Fabio Frizzi and esteemed Italian horror expert Stephen Thrower. Red and clear splatter vinyl.

Escape From New York composed by John Carpenter
Exclusively re-mastered for this vinyl release, including 6 tracks that never made it into the original film. John Carpenter not only directed Escape From New York but also composed and recorded all of its music too. The score sounds as fresh today as it did when it was first released - laden with brooding electronic pulses, flashes of Krautrock and a healthy dose of Nu-disco, all ensuring that this soundtrack sounds as happy on the dance floor as it is in your headphones.

Exclusive cover art by Jay Shaw (aka Iron Jaiden) Currently one of the most in-demand poster artists working today. Jay is heavily influenced by the abstract posters of the Polish film industry and is not afraid to experiment with his designs. His recent work has been selling out in minutes, creating a huge demand on the aftermarket. Sleeve Notes from composer Alan Howarth. Black and Orange swirled vinyl.

Future Releases

The House Of The Devil composed by Jeff Grace (June)
Composer Jeff Grace is a long term collaborator with director Ti West (having scored his three major features). His score for The House of the Devil captures the mood of film soundtracks from the 1970s/1980s perfectly, consisting of eerily sparse piano compositions and light orchestral melodies that grow more intense as the film shifts gears from a subtle mood piece into full-on satanic panic. This edition features the original 80s synth-pop inspired opening title music by Mike Armstrong that was missing from the original CD release and is exclusive to our vinyl version.

Exclusive cover art by Tom Hodge (The Dude Designs) the man responsible for the Hobo With A Shotgun poster artwork and lover of classic exploitation posters of the 70s and 80s. Sleeve notes by director Ti West and composer Jeff Grace. Red and Black swirled vinyl.

Let The Right One In composed by Johan Söderqvist (July 16th)
First ever release on vinyl for this modern day classic. One of the most beautiful-looking vampire movies ever filmed and featuring a soundtrack loaded with dark, brooding themes that still manage to be achingly melancholic at the same time.

Exclusive cover art by Candice Tripp, an internationally renowned fine artist who has exhibited her work in galleries such as Lazarides (London) and Joshua Liner (New York) and is currently represented by Black Rat Press in London. Sleeve notes by composer Johan Söderqvist. Red and White splatter vinyl

Donnie Darko composed by Michael Andrews (Oct 12th)
Released in conjunction with Everloving Records. Re-mastered by composer Michael Andrews especially for this exclusive vinyl release, the score is pulsing, hypnotic and captures the dark and moody nature of the film perfectly. This edition also features the million-selling single Mad World by Gary Jules.

Exclusive cover art by Tom French, a fine artist that works in charcoal and has had his work shown in Philadelphia and London. Exclusive liner notes by composer Michael Andrews. Black and Blue swirled vinyl

"The painting shows our familiar host enjoying ...
