Founded in 2009, the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) exists to preserve the legacy of genre movies, and now some of the weirdest and wildest films ever committed to celluloid have been released on Blu-ray – on the other side of the Atlantic – for the first time.
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 will freeze your blood.”
In 1968, George A. Romero established the modern zombie film with his raw and terrifying debut the Night of the Living Dead, one of the most well-regarded and influential horror movies of all time.

“They won’t stay dead!”
Today, when we refer to modern horror icons we still mention the now decades old Michael Myers from John Carpenter’s Halloween, Freddy Kruger from Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and Jason Voorhees from Sean S. Cunningham’s Friday the 13th. This is testament to their popularity, that has arguably surpassed that of both Universal and Hammer’s horror creations. It is perhaps then surprising to horror newcomers that the character of Jason is notably absent for the majority of the original Friday the 13th.
