Waxwork Records Brings Re-Animator Back to Life on Vinyl

Richard Band’s score to the 1985 cult classic is back on vinyl and sounding better than ever.

By Jay Gervais

The folks over at Waxwork Records have a fine treat in store for fans of Re-Animator and those who enjoyed the film’s soundtrack by Richard Band. One of the label’s first releases is being reanimated (sorry, we couldn’t resist) in the form of a re-release with improved sound quality, which was sourced from the original master tapes.

This new release comes pressed on 180 gram Crystal Clear Vinyl with Neon Green and Yellow “Re-Agent” splatter, which is honestly looking pretty darn swanky. It features original artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin, along with exclusive liner notes by the film’s director, Stuart Gordon, and composer Richard Band. To top it off, you’ll find behind-the-scenes photos from the film set and score recording session as well as a printed inner sleeve.
