Phantasm Soundtrack on Vinyl is Hipster Horror Heaven
This made my hour/day/week/month/year/millennium.
Look at that cover art! ORANGE!
Phantom City Creative is re-pressing the original motion picture soundtrack to Phantasm, one of my favorite movies of all time.
I will own this. Unfortunately, I won't be in Texas when it's actually released, so I'll need to figure out a way to get it from the internet somehow. Hopefully at retail price...
Here's the (not Lydia) deets.
The PHANTASM soundtrack returns to vinyl after a long 35-year absence with stunning new art by Phantom City Creative.
Commenting on the enduring appeal of PHANTASM’s iconic score, director Don Coscarelli said, “What amazes me is that the score has continued to gain traction as the decades have passed. I have met literally thousands of fans who continue to praise Fred Myron and Malcolm Seagrave’s work to this day. I want to thank the terrific crew at Mondo for dreaming up the idea of re-releasing this score in warm analog vinyl despite us all now living in a cold digital world.”
The vinyl and screenprint (artwork by Mike Saputo) will be available on Thursday, April 30, at Alamo Drafthouse Richardson’s screening of PHANTASM. Cast members Angus Scrimm, Reggie Bannister, Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, and Kat Lester and filmmaker Don Coscarelli will be in attendance. The vinyl and poster will also be available at the Texas Frightmare Weekend and online at a future date.
Texas Frightmare Weekend runs May 1-3 at the DFW Hyatt Regency.
