Now is a great time to be a Stephen King fan. Not only are we seeing The Dark Tower and It grace the big screen, seminal vinyl producer Waxwork Records has announced the upcoming soundtrack release of 1987’s Creepshow 2.
Directed by horror legend George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead) and written by Stephen King, Creepshow 2 is a horror anthology broken up into three segments; Old Chief Woodenhead, The Raft, and The Hitchhiker. This film is a must see for fans of 80s horror, just take a peek at the trailer and try not to get excited.
Performed and composed by Les Reed and Rick Wakemen, the soundtrack is mix of orchestral and electronic compositions, all befitting of the film. Waxwork Record’s latest addition to their famed soundtrack catalog also boasts the honor of being the very first time music from Creepshow 2 has been released in any format. The iconic label was even able to work directly with the original composers and acquire the original source material and re-masters. Check out the track-list below:
