Waxwork Records and Sacred Bones Records are thrilled to present JOHN CARPENTER’S LOST CUES: THE THING. Composed and performed by director John Carpenter and including performances by Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies, LOST CUES: THE THING features unreleased musical cues from the 1982 alien-horror movie masterpiece, THE THING.
The Thing marks one of the rare occasions that John Carpenter stepped away from scoring duties and entrusted the task to another composer. The legendary Ennio Morricone composed the cold and minimal original 1982 film music featured in the film that is not only a soundtrack-enthusiast favorite, but has been referenced and even used in films such as Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.
When editing down The Thing in 1982, Carpenter felt that the film could benefit by the inclusion of additional music to fill in gaps. This additional music would sonically tie the overall film together. Taking the initiative, Carpenter performed and recorded multiple synth-driven cues in his renowned scoring style and edited them into the film.
For this new, special release, John Carpenter is quoted:
“Ennio Morricone composed the magnificent score for my movie THE THING. Because we weren’t finished editing the movie, Ennio had to score without seeing a complete picture. When we put everything together, there were gaps dramatically where I would have wanted music. So I went off and scored a couple of simple pieces that filled in.”
The original masters featuring these bonus cues from 1982’s The Thing have been lost to time. In 2019, Waxwork Records teamed with Sacred Bones Records, approached John Carpenter about a release of this music, and he graciously agreed to faithfully perform and record the tracks for a special vinyl 12” EP featuring his son, Cody Carpenter, and the outstanding multi-instrumentalist and co-collaborator Daniel Davies.

Waxwork Records is thrilled to present Phil Tippett’s MAD GOD Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Dan Wool.
MAD GOD is a stop-motion live-action hybrid horror film written, produced, and directed by Phil Tippett. The film follows a tall figure shrouded in a jacket and gas mask known only as The Assassin as he descends into a ruined, hellish world. In his possession, The Assassin has a map of the world and a suitcase with a bomb which he has been tasked with detonating behind enemy lines within the desolate world.
Visual effects virtuoso Phil Tippet (Jurassic Park, Star Wars, RoboCop, Indiana Jones) along with a multitude of dedicated filmmakers spent 30 years creating this artistic masterpiece that defies genre and urges each viewer to take away individual meaning from the piece. MAD GOD is what happens when creative collaboration keeps going despite a project being “finished.” It’s a beast of a film that grew from mad, dedicated, visionary minds.
Dan Wool was brought on to score MAD GOD in 2009. Due to the nature of the animation, there was no audio or dialogue to accompany the picture Wool was given. This combined with the film's storyline, motivated Dan Wool to compose exclusively based on how the images made him feel, creating a unique relationship between composer and viewer. His style of scoring opened up a level of vulnerability and sense of perspective within the characters. Not to say the score isn’t terrifying at points, but it is also hopeful and penetrates a level of dark fantasy that makes MAD GOD more than a horror movie.
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the music of Phil Tippett'sMAD GOD as a deluxe double LP featuring Dan Wool's soundtrack with 180 gram colored vinyl, deluxe packaging, heavyweight gatefold jackets with matte coating, a booklet with extensive liner notes by Phil Tippett and Dan Wool, and more!

The phone is dead. And it’s ringing.
In collaboration with Back Lot Music, Waxwork Records is proud to present THE BLACK PHONE Original Motion Picture SoundtrackbyMark Korven.
Director Scott Derrickson returns to his terror roots partnering again with the foremost brand in the genre, Blumhouse, with a new horror thriller.
Based on an eponymous short story by Joe Hill, The Black Phone follows Finney Shaw, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, who is abducted by a sadistic killer and trapped in a soundproof basement where screaming is of little use. When a disconnected phone on the wall begins to ring, Finney discovers that he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. And they are dead set on making sure that what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.
Starring four-time Oscar® nominee Ethan Hawke in the most terrifying role of his career and introducing Mason Thames in his first ever film role, The Black Phone is produced, directed, and co-written by Scott Derrickson, the writer-director of Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Marvel’s Doctor Strange.
The score for the film was created by composer Mark Korven, the mastermind behind The VVitch, The Lighthouse, and Into the Tall Grass. Korven is a Toronto-based award winning composer and multi-instrumentalist. He is known for his innovation and experimental approach to film scoring. In 2016, Korven conceived the notorious horror musical instrument, The Apprehension Engine.

Waxwork Records is honored to present MIDNIGHT MASS Original Soundtrack From The Netflix Series ByThe Newton Brothers.
MIDNIGHT MASSfollows the inhabitants of Crockett Island, a fishing village whose industry was ruined by an oil spill. Riley Finn (Zach Gilford) returns home after four years in jail to find a new priest, Father Paul (Hamish Linklater), inspiring faith in God back into the townspeople. Miracles soon turn to catastrophe as the origin of the priest is slowly revealed and the overzealous inhabitants start to believe this may be the onset of the rapture. Director, Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Doctor Sleep), asserts that Midnight Mass is his most personal project, one that takes inspiration from many of his own life experiences of getting sober and leaving the church.
The Newton Brothers created the haunting music of Midnight Mass comprising choral hymns and an experimental score featuring both acoustic and electronic instruments. The music allows no respite, always instilling listeners with tension and foreboding, even in its moments of beauty. The powerful vocals of the Midnight Mass Choir create a realm of ghoulish worship with The Newton Brothers' reimagined hymns. Recorded remotely during COVID, this score features hundreds of vocals and musicians from three different countries.
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the official MIDNIGHT MASS score and soundtrack hymns as a deluxe triple LP set with 180 gram colored vinyl, deluxe trifold gatefold packaging with solid black inner printing and overall matte satin coating, never before published character portraits and series artwork, liner notes from creator / director Mike Flanagan, liner notes from The Newton Brothers, and a 12"x12" printed insert.

This release marks the very first time the score to the 1981 slasher-horror classic has been released in any format.
The foreboding score by Paul Zaza is a mix of both minimal synth and orchestral compositions intertwined with bluegrass and country soundtrack cues.
