Terror Threads has made an impact with their official merchandise for horror genre favorites; both cult classic and modern macabre; continuing their impressive run with new The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Houses October Built collections.
Directed by the legendary, prolific William Friedkin and starring Linda Blair, 1973’s The Exorcist remains one of the most important, and terrifying films in cinematic history. So, without further adieu, Waxwork Records presents the deluxe soundtrack vinyl re-issue of The Exorcist.
“Nobody expected it, nobody believed it, and nobody could stop it. The one hope, the only hope… The Exorcist.”
Kicking off its release schedule for 2018, Indicator has delightfully announced UK Blu-ray premiere editions of four era-defining American films.
Published in limited runs, these first pressings also contain Limited Edition exclusive booklets containing newly commissioned writing, contemporary articles and reviews, and full film credits.
“When he runs out of dumb luck he always has genius to fall back on!”
Terror Threads celebrates the night he came home with a collection of John Carpenter’s Halloween apparel.
“Death has come to your little town!”
Fright-Rags will help you maintain that Halloween spirit throughout the year with treats from John Carpenter’s Halloween, Michael and Peter Spierig’s Jigsaw and General Mills’ monster cereals.
“The trick is to stay alive!”
Waxwork Records proudly presents the deluxe re-press of their previously, long sold-out vinyl release of Rosemary’s Baby; the most comprehensive presentation of the original film score to ever be pressed to vinyl. In addition to the re-press of Rosemary’s Baby, Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the original motion picture soundtrack to the 1973 British-Italian thriller, Don’t Look Now.
“What have you done to him? What have you done to his eyes, you maniacs!”
Tobe Hooper was one of the most influential horror directors of all time. His vision and intelligence can be seen in almost every slasher and splatter film over the last forty years and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is Hooper’s masterpiece.
Originally conceived as a faux film “based on true events”, Hooper did draw inspiration from the story of Ed Gein, a murderer, grave robber who had a predilection for a number of other unsavory character traits.
“What happened is true. Now the motion picture that’s just as real. Once you stop screaming, then you’ll start talking about it.”
Autumn is finally upon us! For the Halloween season, we bid you welcome with three new apparel collections from Fright-Rags: The ‘Vintage Halloween’, Bela Lugosi and General Mills monster cereals merchandise.
“This is the real thing! Unbelievable, shocking, true thriller!”
Explicit gore was beginning to infiltrate the grindhouses of America, and ensured that employees of the British Board of Film Censors were working hard for their salaries. Strong reactions from the public, fuelled by politicians, tabloids and critics, set in motion outrage that would result in many splatter films being outright banned; especially in the United Kingdom.
“I created what no man’s mind nor woman’s womb could ever hope to achieve.”
Swedish musician Thomas Nyholm, under the moniker of Islandrocks, creates these insanely good cover versions of exploitation, cult classic theme songs, such as City of the Living Dead (1980), The Beyond (1981), Suspiria (1977), Class of Nuke ‘Em High (1986) and The New York Ripper (1982).
“We are going to dance the Fulci way! Zombie …the funk are among us!”
“You ain’t got to pull that Blacula shit with me.” The line is an attempt to link what seems to be a half-hearted star-vehicle with something else: blaxploitation. By simultaneously comparing Murphy’s ’90s effort with its ’70s predecessor, whilst slyly digging at the older genre’s foibles, the gag it is a somewhat noble, if pithy, effort to give Vampire in Brooklyn more heft.
“Interesting. I’ve been stabbed, and I’ve been hanged, and I’ve been burned. Even broken on the rack once, but I’ve never been shot before. Kind of itches a little!”
The Western is the most American film genre of them all, encompassing a variety of themes and time periods. The 1970s were a fertile period for films that questioned traditional beliefs about our country’s march towards the Pacific, the interests of big business versus individual rights, its treatment of the indigenous peoples and notions of heroism.
Ulzana’s Raid can be viewed as a horror movie that takes place in the West or a Western with all the trappings of a horror film.
