Directed by Michael Gornick, Creepshow 2 is a 1987 horror anthology film based upon stories written by Stephen King and George A. Romero, just like its predecessor; 1982’s Creepshow. Featuring three horror-segments, ‘Old Chief Woodenhead’, ‘The Raft’, and ‘The Hitchhiker’ (plus an animated wrap-around tale of terror), the score, co-composed and performed by Les Reed and Rick Wakeman, featured a mix of both classic, orchestral compositions and electronic, synth cues that complimented the onscreen chaos.
Waxwork Records have worked directly with composers Les Reed and Rick Wakeman to acquire the original source material (after a lengthy search for the original masters) and re-master for vinyl. This stunning deluxe, double LP soundtrack release marks the very first time that the music from Creepshow 2 has been released in any format.
Waxwork’s Creepshow 2 vinyl release is “good to the last gasp” and it shows in the final product. Packaging details include 2xLP 180 gram colored vinyl, with variants correlating to stories within the film, old style tip-on gatefold jackets with a built in booklet featuring liner notes by composer Les Reed, and an LP package that is jam-packed with all new artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin.
