In partnership with our friends at Sacred Bones Records, we are proud to offer an exclusive and limited edition variant of THE DEAD DON'T DIE Original Motion Picture SoundtrackbySQÜRL!
With an all-star cast featuring Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Iggy Pop, Tilda Swinton, Tom Waits, and more,The Dead Don’t Die is writer/director Jim Jarmusch’s unique, semi-comic take on the zombie apocalypse genre. As with his recent efforts Only Lovers Left Alive and Paterson, the film’s score was composed and performed by SQÜRL, the band Jarmusch and producer Carter Logan founded in 2009.
The score to the The Dead Don’t Die is a true expression of where SQÜRL stand at the center of a decade of sonic exploration. It is the culmination of their passion for analog synths, with guitar violence reverberating from the darker corners of Americana. It is at once a tribute to the classic sounds of horror and sci-fi, as well as a decapitation of traditional film scores. It is naturally supernatural!
The inspiration for SQÜRL's score to The Dead Don't Die came from some of the most iconic soundtracks from the past half century of genre cinema including Tangerine Dream's Sorcerer, Bebe and Louis Barron's Forbidden Planet, Goblin's Dawn Of The Dead, Ennio Morricone's The Thing, and all things John Carpenter!

Waxwork Records is proud to present the Us Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featuring a score by composer Michael Abels. Us, released in March 2019, is an original nightmare written, directed and produced by Academy Award®-winning visionary Jordan Peele (Get Out). Set in present-day Santa Cruz on the iconic Northern California coastline, the film, starring Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o and Black Panther’s Winston Duke, pits an ordinary American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
Abels featured a 30 person choir, a third of them children, in the “Anthem,” and implemented Eastern European instruments, violins, percussion, and a virtual instrument called a Propanium drum. “It makes this trashy metal sound, but you can also play melodies on it,” Abels said. “The Propanium drum has a sound that’s both otherworldly but not electronic or like science fiction. It’s a sound you can’t quite put your finger on, which is why it works well in this film.”
Also included on the soundtrack is the 1995 hip-hop hit “I Got 5 On It” by Luniz and the stand-out track “I Like That” by Janelle Monáe. Abels also helped with a new arrangement of the Luniz hit, which is featured on the soundtrack as the ‘Tethered Mix from Us’.
Waxwork is thrilled to present the soundtrack and score as a deluxe double LP featuring 180-gram "Metallic Brass Scissors” colored vinyl for disc one, and “Tethered Red Jumpsuit” colored vinyl for disc two. The album artwork was created by illustrator Edward Kinsella. The interactive packaging includes die-cut inner gatefold jackets that require customers to use scissors to cut through family-member portraits to reveal their tethered doppelgängers lurking in the shadows on the printed inner sleeves housed within. More deluxe items include a die-cut mirror board back cover, a heavyweight 11”x11” art print, and an exclusive essay by UCLA Professor, scholar, and activist Shana L. Redmond Ph.D., author of Anthem: Social Movements and the Sound of Solidarity in the African Diaspora

Child's Play (2019)
Save $ -35.00
Waxwork Records is thrilled to release CHILD’S PLAY (2019) Original Motion Picture Soundtrack! Featuring music by EMMY® and BAFTA Award winning composer Bear McCreary (Godzilla: King Of The Monsters, TV’s The Walking Dead) in a special deluxe double LP vinyl edition. Directed by Lars Klevberg and starring Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, and featuring the new voice of Chucky performed by Mark Hamill (Star Wars), CHILD’S PLAY is the 2019 American horror film reboot of the 1988 film of the same title. The plot follows a family that is terrorized by a high tech doll that rejects its programming and becomes self aware.
Composer Bear McCreary’s music of CHILD’S PLAY is carried out with his assembly of a “toy orchestra”. McCreary uses his own voice to create an ominous “kids choir” and collaborates closely with legendary actor Mark Hamill who sings the track for the film, “The Buddi Song”. Inspired by Chucky’s toy origins, McCreary challenges himself by composing a score solely with toys and handheld instruments, completely avoiding traditional orchestra. Toy pianos, slinkies, xylophones, rattles, ukuleles, accordions, kazoos, hurdy gurdies, and more are married with a variety of synthesizers, percussion, violin, viola, cello, and bass to create a wholly original, terrifying, and dynamic score.
Album features include the complete film music by Bear McCreary, double 180 gram “Chucky’s Eyes” colored vinyl (Blue and Red), artwork by Phantom City Creative, composer liner notes, a 12”x12” insert, and deluxe packaging.

Waxwork Records in partnership with Back Lot Music is proud to present The House With A Clock In Its Walls Original Motion Picture Music by Nathan Barr. Directed by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) and scored by NathanBarr (True Blood, Cabin Fever), The House With A Clock In Its Walls is a 2018 dark fantasy film based on the 1973 novel of the same name by John Bellairs.

Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the Original Motion Picture Score and Soundtrack to HER SMELL. Written and directed by Alex Ross Perry (Queen Of Earth) and starring Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), HER SMELL is a 2018 psychodrama divided into five Acts that focuses on the narcissistic and destructive punk icon Becky Something (Moss), lead vocalist of the fictional 90’s band, Something She. The film examines corrupted relationships and the high cost of fame as Becky is consumed by her ego, substance abuse, and psychotic breakdowns that come in endless, rageful waves.
The claustrophobic and panic attack inducing score by Keegan DeWitt is, like the movie, divided into multiple Acts that serve as a disorienting and caustic auditory assault unlike any music composed for film before. Melody and hooks are lit aflame and violently replaced by an annihilating war on the listener that infects on an unnerving level far deeper than any standard film score could ever wish to accomplish. If a total mental breakdown married a nightmarish hallucination, DeWitt’s score to HER SMELL would be the unrelenting and violently spiraling listening experience.
In addition to DeWitt’s score and included as a 7” vinyl EP are the soundtrack songs performed by the fictional alt-rock trio from HER SMELL, Akergirls, featuring Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson, and Dylan Gelula. Also included on this companion 7” are two solo tracks performed by Elisabeth Moss as her destructive punk persona, Becky Something.

Waxwork Records is thrilled to present CRUISING Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and Score. Available for the first time, the original 1980 soundtrack release has been expanded to include the complete film music. Spanning three LP’s, Waxwork worked closely with director William Friedkin, Sony, and Universal Pictures to locate and unearth the original masters that include the original Jack Nitzsche score sessions, the Germs recording sessions, and all music recorded for the film featuring The Cripples, Barre Phillips, Mutiny, and many more. This is the long awaited and definitive CRUISING soundtrack release requested by fans of the film, punk rock, and the counter culture for decades.
CRUISING is a 1980 erotic crime thriller directed by William Friedkin (The Exorcist, Sorcerer) and starring Al Pacino and Karen Allen. It is loosely based on the novel by the same name about a serial killer targeting gay men associated with the underground leather and S&M scene in New York City. The production and shooting of CRUISING was plagued with protests and petitioning to stop the filming by gay rights activists. The movie was received poorly upon release, however, CRUISING has gone to amass a large cult-following and is now considered to be a wildly underrated and thought provoking film that was years ahead of it’s time. CRUISING and director Friedkinunapologetically explored topics that were largely considered at the time to be taboo, noncommercial, and dangerous.
Director William Friedkin’s renegade approach at documentary style filmmaking took him to the darkest corners of the underground where his research and discovery of crime, lifestyle duality, and the burgeoning gay leather scene sparked the creation of a landmark film that is a topic of intense conversation and examination to this day.
Waxwork’s CRUISING Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and Score features the complete music recorded for the film pressed to 180 gram Blue, Black, and White colored vinyl, a 12”x12” booklet featuring an exclusive essay by director William Friedkin on the intense making of the film and creation of it’s music, album design and layout by Aesthetic Apparatus, triple gatefold jackets with satin coating and spot UV gloss, and all music sourced and re-mastered from the original master tapes.

Waxwork Records is proud to present BlacKkKlansman (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) with score by Academy Award® nominated composer Terence Blanchard. From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out, the film has received praise and accolades from critics and fans and is nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Original Score. Blanchard also recently won his sixth GRAMMY® for Best Instrumental Composition for the track “Blut Und Boden (Blood and Soil)” from the album.
With Blanchard’s current band, the E-Collective, featured on the score to BlacKkKlansman as well as a 96-piece orchestra, the composer delivers “a soaring, seething, luxuriant score,” comments the New York Times. In Vice Magazine, Blanchard elaborates, “In BlacKkKlansman it all became real to me. You feel the level of intolerance that exists for people who ignore other people’s pain. Musically, I can’t ignore that. I can’t add to that intolerance. Instead I have to help people heal from it."
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the score as a deluxe vinyl release featuring the complete film music by Blanchard pressed to 180-gram vinyl. The deluxe packaging details include 1970’s inspired design work by Aesthetic Apparatus, a heavyweight printed insert, old style tip-on gatefold jackets and "Blood & Soil" colored vinyl.

Waxwork Records proudly presents the Original HBO Series Soundtrack to Vice Principals Seasons 1 & 2. Created by and starring Danny McBride and co-starring Walton Goggins, Vice Principals is a two season black comedy that focuses on an ill-tempered and disliked Vice Principal (McBride) and his ambitions to be promoted to the principal’s chair. When neither he or the co-vice principal (Goggins) are promoted, they co-conspire to overthrow and destroy the reputation of the newly appointed principal, Dr. Belinda Brown. A series of arson, blackmail, revenge, and even attempted murder ensues in the hilarious and often shocking series.
Waxwork worked directly with Danny McBride, composer Joseph Stephens, and Vice Principals music supervisor, DeVoe Yates, to create and release a deluxe vinyl release featuring the complete series soundtrack by Stephens. The 1980’s influenced synth-driven electronic soundtrack is both dark and droning. It’s melodic and fun, yet moody. It’s classic John Carpenter scored to the best John Hughes movie. It’s 100% awesome, and that’s a Gamby promise!

Waxwork Records is thrilled to kick off 2019 with the deluxe vinyl release of THE PROWLER Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Richard Einhorn. Released in 1981, THE PROWLER is one of the earliest films to become part of the American-Slasher genre. It also features special effects by Tom Savini (Friday the 13th, Creepshow, Day Of The Dead) and was directed by Joseph Zito (Friday The 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter). The film’s music by Richard Einhorn (Shock Waves, Don’t Go In The House) introduces the composer’s departure from the primitive, monophonic synth scoring of his earlier work, and implements a blend of orchestral cues and mature electronic soundscapes. Waxwork Records worked with the composer to research and locate the master tapes that were thought to have been destroyed for decades. The tapes were restored, transferred, and the music was mixed, constructed into a cohesive soundtrack listening experience, and mastered specifically for vinyl. This special release is a must for fans of the horror genre.
THE PROWLER was released just one year after the critical success of FRIDAY THE 13TH, and has become one of the classic, underrated American-Slasher horror gems. The film is downright scary and features some of the most shocking death scenes of the entire horror movie genre due in part to the expertise of special effects mastermind, Tom Savini. The story tells of a group of college students holding a graduation dance 35 years after a double homicide occurred in their small town. They are targeted by a masked assailant dressed in World War II G.I. fatigues who begins a murderous spree.
This new, definitive double LP film score release of THE PROWLER features all of the film’s music composed by Richard Einhorn pressed to 180 gram Army Green Swirl with Rose Petal Red Splatter, new artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin, exclusive liner notes by director Joseph Zito, and a printed insert featuring Rosemary’s break-up letter.

Drag Me To Hell
Save $ -35.00
Waxwork Records is proud to present the Original Motion Picture Score to DRAG ME TO HELL. Directed by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead Trilogy, Darkman), DRAG ME TO HELL tells the story of a banker with a seemingly good life, a supportive boyfriend, and a bright future. She makes a sinful choice for her own betterment, and as a result, is cursed by a gypsy and haunted by an ancient demonic force that will stop at nothing to drag her to the depths of Hell. The film became a box office success and has amassed many accolades and awards due in part to it’s originality and fantastic screenplay by Sam and Ivan Raimi,
The film score was composed and conducted by famed composer Christopher Young (Hellraiser, A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge). It was Young’s aim to create a sonic landscape of a world that didn’t exist. A supernatural setting featuring overdubbed, layered violins to emulate an evil, devil-like force manipulating the instrument. Horns, organ, child-like ethereal voices, and vintage keyboards round out the score to create a dark and intense experience.
Waxwork Records worked in collaboration with Lakeshore Records on the DRAG ME TO HELL vinyl album. This special release marks the very first time that the film music has been pressed to vinyl. Features include the complete score by Christopher Young, new art by Midnight Marauder, 180 Gram 2xLP “Hell-Fire” colored vinyl, composer liner notes, and old style tip-on gatefold jackets with satin coating.
