Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the soundtrack to the 2014 Australian psychological horror film, THE BABADOOK. Directed by Jennifer Kent, THE BABADOOK focuses on a troubled widow, Amelia, who is is raising her six year old son, Samuel, after the death of her husband in an automobile accident. After a series of strange events, Amelia and Samuel unexpectedly receive a mysterious pop-up-storybook: Mister Babadook. The book describes a hideous, tall, pale faced monster in a top hat and coat that tortures his victims after they become aware of his existence. The narrative and film engulf the viewer in themes of personal loss, grief, despair, and ultimately, recovery.
The soundtrack by Jed Kurzel (Alien: Covenant) is whimsically dark, brooding, and at times, a terrifying listening experience. Kurzel blends electronic instruments and synthesizers with unorthodox instruments and pulsating, drowning vocal soundscapes.
The film received worldwide critical acclaim. THE EXORCIST director, William Friedkin, publicly announced, “I’ve never seen a more terrifying film than THE BABADOOK. It will scare the hell out of you as it did me.”
Waxwork Records worked extensively with composer Jed Kurzel and the creators of THE BABADOOK to present an incredible physical soundtrack release on deluxe vinyl. The deluxe LP package includes a re-creation of THE BABADOOK storybook complete with old-style tip on gatefold jackets and a pop-up Mister Babadook, heavyweight printed inserts featuring all new artwork by Jessica Seamans of LandLand, liner notes by composer Jed Kurzel, and 180 Gram Black and White swirl colored vinyl.

Waxwork Records in partnership with Milan Records is excited to present ANTEBELLUM Original Motion Picture Score by Nate Wonder and Roman GianArthur. Antebellum is a 2020 American psychological horror film written and directed by Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz. It stars Janelle Monáe, Eric Lange, and Jena Malone and follows a modern day African American woman who must escape from a 19th century Southern slave plantation. Veronica Henley (Monáe), a successful and prominent author, is abducted and taken back into the Antebellum period. She must free herself and others and take them back to the modern time period before it is too late.
The score was composed by Nate Wonder and Roman GianArthur, who have worked with Janelle Monáe on her numerous albums as part of her Wonderland Arts Society collective. Antebellum marks both composers’ debut film score.
“Writing the score for Antebellum has been a rewarding adventure in creating a musical bed that compliments the script while becoming its own unique character and identity within the film. It was really wonderful to work with my brother on this, it was one of the most fulfilling experiences,” Wonder said of the project in a statement. “Working with Janelle Monáe has also been a pleasure as always. We’ve done this a few times before and every time it is a thrilling experience to work on such intriguing ideas. It’s been especially heart-warming to work on this feature, as it is the next step in the evolution of her emotional pictures.”
“We’re thankful for the opportunity for this to be our first feature and to be working with Gerard and Chris on their first feature film as well,” he said. “After reading the script we started ideating in Atlanta at the Wondaland studio, and began with simple voice memos. From there we brought in a violin, viola and cello to flesh the tone and direction of the score out. The process of shaping these voice memos and growing them to eventually be recorded with a symphony orchestra has been gratifying and an unforgettable experience.”
Waxwork Records is proud to present Antebellum as a deluxe score album featuring 180 gram Black with Red Haze colored vinyl, printed inner sleeves, and design and layout by Shawn Lyon.
