WOW it has been months since I did one of these I realized and I wanted to do one to start the new year weeks ago but never got around to it. SO the last day of January I decided to start again, this time with an album that I picked up back in October SCREAM in fact its actually the sound track to Scream 1 and 2. Both films were directed by the late great Wes Craven and composed by Marco Beltrami. The music from the Scream franchise was instrumental in launching the career of Marco Beltrami, who is now one of the most popular composers in Hollywood. This really shows he can do that music we love to hear in a Wes Craven Horror movies, its soft at times we need to be and twisted and speeds up for a good fight and chase scenes. I never found Scream to be scary but I wont denigh I loved the films and their music was always great.
The record comes in a slip cover with Gorgeous art by Gary Pullin, more on his amazing art can be found here. Gary Pullin Facebook Page
The art reminds me of the cover to Friday the 13th Part 8 with Jason over looking New York city. I tried to recreate this for a office function once with Jason over looking our building like he does NY City. I was told by HR to take it down…..the precious butterfly’s of the office might be OFFENDED. I digress. If you look closely you can see Drew Barrymore character hanging from the tree like in the opening of SCREAM.
The vinyl it self is white to match Ghost Face mask. A Bone White’ 180 gram colored vinyl. The record when the needle hits really puts me into the film itself and when it comes to Horror Soundtracks this is the best way for me to listen to them, not on Itunes or on cd even. My only complaint is the Chase begins from the first Scream is not here. Also the cardboard it comes in can be damaged very very easily so be careful how you handle it. Mine has a few creases already. The price tag on this is not bad it will fetch you between 20-25 on amazon or ebay. Pick it up if your a horror soundtrack collector.

Even though Konami has abandoned making video Games we at least still have the great music from the games and I am buying all the Castlevania records expected to come out.
Mondo announced a new partnership this week with the The-Once-Great-Publisher-That-Must-Not-Be-Named that’ll bring several of gaming’s most aurally accomplished franchises to vinyl. There’ll be licensed prints and collectibles too, but we’re talking about a vinyl release of the OSTs for Castlevania, Silent Hill and Contra here.
Even in the post-Silent Hills world we currently live in, that’s exciting.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2016 in July, Mondo will unveil their limited edition vinyl for the 1986 Castlevania, with artwork by renowned comic artist Becky Cloonan. They’ll also show off a limited edition polystone statue inspired by Ayami Kojima’s work on Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
There’s plenty more coming later. Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, Super Castlevania IV and Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night will all get vinyl releases, complete with original artwork for each. Silent Hill and Contra will get the same treatment, eventually.
