For all the music fans out there, we have another vinyl release coming up and this time it’s the music from the first two Scream films, courtesy of the folks over at Varèse Sarabande. If you missed out on the company's previous vinyl editions for these scores, you’ll have another chance to own it before it sells out again. Have a look below for the press release along with other details regarding this item.
What’s your favorite scary movie? After two previous editions sold out, the soundtracks to Scream and Scream 2 are being released together again as a single LP, this time on red vinyl. The package features bespoke imagery on the jacket and labels from noted illustrator, “Ghoulish” Gary Pullin. The Scream films have grossed over 600 million dollars in total, which make it one of the most successful horror franchises in cinematic history.
Marco Beltrami is an American film and television composer and conductor, who until recently was best known for his work scoring horror films such as Mimic, The Faculty, Resident Evil, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark and The Woman in Black. A long-time friend and collaborator of Wes Craven, Beltrami scored seven of the director's films including all four films in the Scream franchise. Beltrami has been nominated for two Academy Awards for his work on The Hurt Locker and 3:10 To Yuma.
