If you’re like me, horror movie soundtracks are a staple of my day. Each and every time I’m at work on my computer, I have a horror soundtrack playing in the background. Even now, I’m listening to Pet Sematary‘s score by Elliot Goldenthal. True story.
If you’re looking for a few scores to add to your collection, you may want to head over to La-La Land Records to take advantage of their Halloween sale that ends tomorrow. You can find some good deals for only $4 each! You can pick up the soundtracks for The Sender, Trick ‘r Treat, The Conjuring, and a few more for just a few bucks. For $10, you can get yourself copies of Friday the 13th (the original) and Evil Dead (the remake), Pet Sematary (the expanded release, which I just ordered), and a few more. Or for $15, you can get John Harrison’s Creepshow, which I have to say is simply a must for any collector of horror soundtracks. It is one of my all-time favorites. But in that same price range, they have Day of the Dead, Magic (which I also just ordered), and Monster Squad.
So head over to their website HERE and check out the sale. Once again, the sale ends on Halloween, so don’t wait.
And while on the subject of horror scores, another title that is a must for your collection is that of Jerry Goldsmith’s Oscar winning score for The Omen. Now to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of this Satanic Classic, they have just re-released it with six extra tracks that have never been released. Granted, it doesn’t look like we’re talking a lot of music here, but if you are a completist…you may just want to pick it up. Especially if you don’t have a versioni of this score already.
