Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the debut release of ALICE, SWEET ALICEOriginal Motion Picture Soundtrack by Stephen Lawrence. Alice, Sweet Alice is a 1976 American Slasher-Horror film directed by Alfred Sole and starring Brooke Shields in her film debut. Set in 1961 New Jersey, the film focuses on a troubled adolescent girl who becomes the suspect in the brutal murder of her younger sister at her first communion, as well as in a series of unsolved stabbings that follow.
In the years since its release, Alice, Sweet Alice has gained a cult following and is considered a contemporary classic of the slasher sub-genre in critical circles. It has also been the focus of scholarship in the areas of horror film studies, particularly regarding its depictions of Roman Catholicism, child emotional neglect, and the disintegration of the American nuclear family.
The film’s chilling score was composed by Stephen Lawrence. Lawrence is an American composer that has scored more than 300 songs and musical cues for Sesame Street, resulting in three Emmy Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition. The music of Alice, Sweet Alice features heavy usage of dissonant strings, repetitive keys, church organ, and motifs that segue from eerily mischievous and playful to dread inducing and utterly haunting.
Available for the very first time in any format, the complete soundtrack to Alice, Sweet Alice is also available onCD, with new artwork by Steven Reeves.

Waxwork Records is proud to present the deluxe vinyl release of TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES PART II: THE SECRET OF THE OOZEOriginal Motion Picture Score by John DuPrez. Released in 1991 as the highly anticipated sequel to 1990’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, THE SECRET OF THE OOZE follows the adventures of four Turtles: Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, Raphael, and their Master Splinter. Resuming from the events of the first film, The Shredder returns to take back command of the Foot Clan and work towards getting revenge on the Turtles. When he learns the secret behind the Turtles' mutation, he becomes more dangerous than ever. The film sheds light on the origins of Splinter and the Turtles, as well as introduces two new villains: Tokka and Rahzar.
Lifted from the pages of the popular comic series, a wildly successful Saturday morning cartoon, and a massive hit-line of toy action figures, the motion picture adaptation of the beloved crime fighting turtles brought the TMNT franchise to the next level.
The gritty and dark NYC martial-arts-superhero-comedy features the four cherished ninja turtles with a slew of other idolized characters such as Master Splinter, Shredder, Casey Jones, April O’Neil, and The Foot.
In collaboration with composer John DuPrez, TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman, and Nickelodeon, Waxwork Records is proud to present the official and complete 1991 score to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Secret of the Ooze for the first time in any format. Sourced from the original masters, the complete film music by DuPrez has been re-stored and re-mastered. Also included is “Ninja Rap” by Vanilla Ice.

The series garnered attention from the biggest names in wrestling including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who called the show “captivating” and “gripping”. The New York Times called the show “An addictive exploration of pro-wrestling”.

Waxwork Records is proud to present GRETEL & HANSEL Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by ROB.Directed by Osgood Perkins (The Blackcoat’s Daughter, I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House) and starring Sophia Lillis (It Chapters 1 and 2), Gretel & Hansel is a 2020 American Dark Fantasy Horror Film based on the German folklore tale Hansel and Gretel by The Brothers Grimm. The story is set a long time ago in a distant fairy tale countryside and focuses on a young girl who leads her little brother into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil. Gretel & Hansel offers a terrifying untold story to the classic fairytale.
The soundtrack by Paris-based composer ROB (Revenge, Horns) is a haunting and hypnotic electronic soundscape that features Moog synthesizers and a mellotron. There was no orchestra involved in the creating process, as ROB played all instruments himself, except from additional cellos by his recording partner Moritz Reich.
From the composer:
“The idea was to avoid the traditional musical schemes used in talessuch as the use of symphonic orchestras, and therefore find a more original and specific color, using both warm and synthetic sounds with the predominance of the mellotron and the Moog synths.
I find it essential to create melodies that we can sing or whistle (themes, ritournelle...), as, in horror cinema, it is usually the opposite, where the music rather has a tendency toward structure and abstraction. For this project, which is a film about kids, it seemed important to have that.”
Waxwork Records is excited to present Gretel & Hansel as a deluxe CD release featuring the complete film music by ROB with new artwork by Sara Deck. The packaging, artwork, and design is a nod to classic fairytale books such as Little Golden Books.
