Music Mondo Shares ‘Halloween II’ and ‘Night of the Living Dead’ Vinyl Soundtrack Details and Cover Art Published 11 months ago on September 18, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Mondo has just released full details for their Vinyl Soundtracks of Rick Rosenthal’s Halloween II (1981) and Tom Savini’s Night of the Living Dead (1990) remake. Pressed by Death Waltz and Strange Disc Records, both scores will be available this Wednesday. HALLOWEEN II – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Artwork by Paul Mann. Webstore Exclusive pressed on 180 Gram Red, Orange and Blue vinyl. Also available on 180 Gram Orange vinyl. Expected to Ship in September 2018. $32 Death Waltz Recording Co., is proud to present the return of one of horror’s scariest boogeymen – as well as one of the genre’s most iconic themes – with John Carpenter and Alan Howarth’s score to HALLOWEEN II. Set directly after the events of the first film, Rick Rosenthal’s sequel sets itself up as the slasher equivalent of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, making a family connection between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers while getting some good kills in at the same time. Carpenter and Howarth’s score is beefier and more intense than before, using layers of electronics to drive the audience to madness. As before, Myers aka “The Shape” is propelled by that theme, souped up with a new and more powerful arrangement from Carpenter and Howarth. HALLOWEEN II is more overtly synth – and is perhaps less focused – than the original score, although that certainly means it’s nastier and more schizophrenic. The score also brings back the evocative “Laurie’s Theme,” incorporating into a score full of harrowing musical effect; its synthesized howls and wails pierce your ears, so that by the time ‘Mr. Sandman’ comes around, you’ll feel just like the final girl – delirious at having survived the aural ordeal. And that’s just when “The Shape” wakes up. NOTE: Due to demand, to ensure everyone is able to complete their HALLOWEEN 1-5 vinyl collection, we will open up HALLOWEEN II up for pre-order if the initial pressing sells out. Michael Myers Enamel Pin. Designed by Matt Ryan Tobin. 1.5″ in Height on 2″x3″ Backing. Expected to Ship in October 2018. $10 NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Released by Strange Disc Records. Expected to Ship in November 2018. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990) is a remake of George Romero’s 1968 zombie classic of the same name. Directed by Tom Savini, the film stars iconic horror actors Tony Todd (Candyman), Tom Towles (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer) and Bill Moseley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Savini was initially hired to perform the special effects but was persuaded to direct by Romero who also rewrote the original 1968 screenplay and gave his seal of approval. Scoring duties were handled by writer-composer-actor Paul McCollough (known for his work on Midnight, The Crazies, Santa Claws, etc). Whilst the original film was mostly stock soundtrack, the score in Savini’s version is more ‘Carpenter-esque’ and the synth provides some very eerie effects used brilliantly throughout out the film. Paul delivers a frightening and disturbing (in all the right ways) score here…giving it an atmosphere of creepy supernatural darkness and a feeling of impacting doom. Listener beware … you won’t be able to listen to this without having to look behind your shoulder!
