"KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE" 30TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!


“Clowns can be frightening, bizarre and terrifying. We took that primordial fear and put it in a Sci-Fi movie,” explained composer John Massari.  “You have something that should make you happy and laugh, but now it will kill and eat you and… it’s from outer space! Who would have dreamed of this? That’s the craziest idea in the world.”  Over time the film has earned generations of fans – many of whom Massari has connected with both through social media and at conventions leading him to create this special celebration of all things Killer Klowns.

For the 30th Anniversary, Massari has created a three-ring Sci-Fi/Horror celebration, reuniting an amazing line-up of special guests, including the film’s creators, the Chiodo Brothers, musical guests The Dickies, stars Grant Cramer and Suzanne Snyder.

At 6PM, the Kosmic Klown circus celebration will begin with stilt walkers, balloon folding artist Buster Balloon Cadwell, contortionist Bonnie Morgan, plus fortune tellers, strong men and women, magicians, body art, fan arts and crafts, and of course the Killer Klowns.  There will be a pre-show Q&A at 7PM featuring Stephen Chiodo (writer/director), Charles Chiodo (writer/art director), Edward Chiodo (writer/producer), Grant Cramer (Mike Tobacco), Suzanne Snyder (Debbie Stone), members of The Dickies, and composer John Massari, moderated by Jim Branscome of Cinematic Void.

Following the Q&A, at 8PM, the film will be screened with it’s original musical score performed live by The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Massari.  LA's very own original punk rockers, The Dickies, will perform their enduring classic Killer Klowns From Outer Space theme song.  Stephen Chiodo declares, “Whoopdee God Damned De Do!! What a fantastic way to celebrate a 30 year anniversary surrounded by fans, John’s incredible score and the Dickies.”

Varèse Sarabande Records will be releasing a new recording of the soundtrack on CD and LP, available for sale at the concert.  The album features the original score performed by members of The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, with new orchestrations by Massari and Bernhard Eder. The Dickies recorded a BRAND NEW version of the film’s theme song featuring an extra creepy intro followed by their signature pure punk energized sound.

“For 30 years, love and loyalty from fans the world over made this extraordinary movie a beloved cult classic,” said Massari.  “This event is our way to celebrate Killer Klowns From Outer Space directly with these fans.”
Now here is a show, I would love to see... if you are in the neighborhood, just go!

Kino Lorber Classics: "Legend of the Mountain" [1979] [DVD/BLU-RAY]


In King Hu's masterpiece Legend of the Mountain, a traveling scholar is tasked with translating a Buddhist sutra said to have immense power over the spirits of the afterlife. During his research he loses his way in the mountains, encountering ghostly presences amid a haunting fantasia of color, light and landscape. King Hu rose to prominence in the 1960s and '70s as a superb director of wuxia films (A Touch of Zen), a popular Chinese action genre of swords, sorcery and chivalrous heroes. 


Legend of the Mountain comes from the director's late period, when his visual artistry was at the height of its powers. The film's astonishing nature scenes, shot on location in the Korean countryside, are reminiscent of Terrence Malick, while the reflective blend of myth and history is all Hu's own.

Lakeshore Records: "THE TITAN" Music by Fil Eisler


In the near future, a military family is chosen to participate in a ground-breaking experiment to accelerate man’s genetic evolution in order to relocate humanity to another planet.

ABOUT Composer Fil Eisler...
Fil Eisler is one of today’s most busy and diverse composers, with projects that range from big studio action pieces and comedies, to gritty independent films and hit television shows. Eisler recently scored Sony’s action thriller “Proud Mary” starring Taraji P. Henson. His upcoming work includes scoring Warner Bros.’ comedy film, “Life of the Party,” starring Melissa McCarthy, AMC’s new comedy series, “Dietland,” starring Joy Nash and Julianna Margulies, and the sci-fi thriller “The Titan,” starring Sam Worthington.

Eisler’s inventive scores and signature themes enliven some of TV’s most popular series and notable films. He composes for Fox’s Golden Globe-nominated drama series “Empire,” where his tension filled orchestral cues provide a powerful contrast to the show’s hip-hop soundtrack, as well as Lifetime’s Peabody-winning series “UnReal,” Bravo’s hit comedy drama series “Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce,” and Showtime's Emmy-winning “Shameless.” Eisler was also both the composer and conductor for ABC’s breakout hit drama “Revenge.”  Additionally, in 2017 Eisler completed the scores for Netflix’s drama “To The Bone” starring Lily Collins and Warner Bros.’ hilarious film reboot of the fan-favorite series, “CHIPS,” starring Dax Shepard, Michael Peña and Kristen Bell.

Jason Blum produced through his Blumhouse Productions banner, and Universal Pictures distributed the film. Released in theaters on April 13, 2018, the film has grossed $21 million worldwide.

Matthew Margeson (born June 9, 1980) is an American composer, musician, and arranger of film, television, and video game scores. He is a member of Hans Zimmer's Remote Control Productions, and has been a frequent collaborator of fellow composer Henry Jackman on films like Kick-Ass 2, Kingsman: The Secret Service, and its sequel.

VARÈSE SARABANDE "RECORD STORE DAY" RELEASES...

Varèse Sarabande announces three album releases for Record Store Day on April 21, 2018:  KRUSH GROOVE featuring tracks by LL Cool J, Beastie Boys, Kurtis Blow, Run-DMC and more; cult classic GRINDHOUSE: PLANET TERROR never before been available on LP; and Tangerine Dream’s epic release ZEIT.  


This long out of print soundtrack LP to the classic hip-hop film KRUSH GROOVE includes appearances from the biggest acts of the 80's: LL Cool J, Beastie Boys, Kurtis Blow, Run-DMC, and more.  This re-issue of KRUSH GROOVE features the limited edition cover used only by record clubs at the time of the original release, and was never available to record stores.  This release will be pressed on Orange/Blue Haze vinyl, giving the record a graffiti-look in the two primary colors of the jacket.


GRINDHOUSE: Planet Terror was part of a double feature film release between Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino that starred Rose McGowan, who sings on three tracks exclusive to this soundtrack.  The score is composed by Robert Rodriguez, Graeme Revell, (The Crow, Sin City), and Carl Thiel (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series), with additional songs by Chingon and Nouvelle Vague.  The album has never before been available on LP and will be released on opaque white vinyl.


After selling-through on all copies of Tangerine Dream's debut album as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday 2017, Varèse Sarabande returns with Tangerine Dream's third album – their breakthrough record Zeit. Each side of this double-LP features only one epic song, varying in length. This release has been pressed, appropriately enough, on Tangerine-colored vinyl.

Intrada: "THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS" Music by James Horner


James Horner's gift, among many gifts, was his ability to find and focus on the most intimate and subtle emotions, bringing them to the forefront with his music.  It mattered not whether he was scoring an epic like Titanic or an intimate drama like The Man Without a Face.  The 2008 film The Boy in the Striped Pajamas was of the latter type, a film where the interior life of the characters was the driving force of the drama.  Horner purposely avoids drawing attention to the music by limiting his palette to the somber sounds of piano, strings, oboes, French horns, low-lying trumpet and occasional ambient sounds. No other percussion — but the piano is always in the spotlight. Harmonic color is important, with relatively little dissonance.  As the composer described it, the score undergoes a transformation over the course of the film, having very little forward momentum to "suddenly becoming panic."

Horner, along with recording engineer Simon Rhodes, mixed and assembled a generous 52-minute album at the time of the film’s release, though it was never issued in physical form until this premiere Intrada CD. Recorded at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California, this album covers almost all the score and features several lengthy tracks comprising multiple cues, as was customary for the composer.

The 2008 film adaptation tells the story of eight-year-old Bruno (Asa Butterfield), a boy growing up in 1944 Berlin until his soldier father, Ralf (David Thewlis), receives a promotion and moves the family out of the city. Unhappy to leave his friends, Bruno does not adjust well to the change and feels imprisoned by the old, fortress-like house. One day, disobeying his parents, he escapes over the wall and goes exploring. He comes upon a fenced-off compound that he had already noticed through his window (until his parents covered the view). He sees a boy sitting on the other side of the fence and they begin an awkward friendship. Meanwhile, Bruno’s mother, Elsa (Vera Farmiga), slowly starts to understand— to her horror—the true nature of her husband’s new assignment. It all leads to a painful, tragic conclusion.

Varèse Sarabande: "JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER" [3Cd] Music by Rachel Portman

The release contains music from JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER and its spinoff series, JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: GREEK MYTHS, a 32-page booklet of exclusive interviews with the producers of the series and Portman herself, and a collection of behind-the-scenes photographs.

Varèse Sarabande: "AMC’s INTO THE BADLANDS: SEASON 1" Music by Dave Shephard


Varèse Sarabande will release AMC’s INTO THE BADLANDS: SEASON 1 – Original Series Soundtrack digitally and on CD April 20, 2018. The album features original music composed by Dave Shephard (LongMire) with main titles by Warrior Blade. Varèse Sarabande will be putting out the second season soundtrack later this year.

“How much more inspiration can one ask for than a sweeping, futuristic epic set in a dystopian, feudal world of master sword-wielders and supernatural forces?” asked Shephard.

In Season 1, Sunny, the deadliest Clipper in the Badlands, rescues a boy, M.K., from a deadly ambush. As Sunny and M.K. try to uncover the secret behind M.K.'s dark power, a new baron threatens to start a war between the rival lands.

The post-apocalyptic, visually stunning martial arts series with incredible cinematography and cinema-worthy fight sequences gave Shephard a good deal of inspiration. “From scene to scene to scene, I discovered richly textured characters, costumes, landscapes and story lines that conjured in me an immense wealth of musical ideas with which to play as I created a sound and musical narrative for the TV-series,” he explained. 

Varèse Sarabande: "TIMELESS" Music by Robert Duncan


Varèse Sarabande will release the TIMELESS – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on April 13, and on CD May 4, 2018. The album features original music composed by Robert Duncan (S.W.A.T., CASTLE). Lead actress Abigail Spencer’s rendition of "You Made Me Love You" is a special album-only bonus track.

“Timeless is a composer's dream gig,” said Duncan. “One week it's exploring dark and chilling timbres for the Salem witch trials, next it's finding the right melody to express the thrill of humankind's first steps on the moon. What could be better?”

From Eric Kripke (Revolution, Supernatural), Shawn Ryan (The Shield), John Fox and John Davis (The Blacklist), comes this thrilling action-adventure series.  In season 1, a mysterious criminal, Flynn (Goran Visnjic), steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: Lucy (Abigail Spencer), a history professor; Wyatt (Matt Lanter), a soldier; and Rufus (Malcolm Barrett), a scientist, who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events. While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive.

Varèse Sarabande: "GHOST STORIES" Music by Frank Ilfman


Varèse Sarabande will release the Ghost Stories – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and on CD April 13, 2018. The album features original score composed by Frank Ilfman (Big Bad Wolves, DOWN THE DEEP DARK WEB).

Experience three spine-tingling tales of terror to haunt your dreams. A debunker of all things paranormal, Professor Phillip Goodman (Andy Nyman) has devoted his life to exposing phony psychics and fraudulent supernatural shenanigans on his own television show. His skepticism is put to the test, however, when he receives a file of three chilling, inexplicable cases: a night watchman (Paul Whitehouse) haunted by disturbing visions as he patrols an abandoned asylum; an edgy young man (Black Mirror’s Alex Lawther) involved in a hellish car accident deep in the woods; and a wealthy former banker (Sherlock’s Martin Freeman) visited by the poltergeist spirit of his unborn child. Even scarier: each of the these macabre stories seems to have a sinister connection to Professor Goodman’s own life. Will they make a believer of him yet?

Silva Screen Records: "DOCTOR WHO" [SERIES 9] (3Cd) Music by Murray Gold


Premiering in September 2015, the ninth series of Doctor Who featured Peter Capaldi in the title role in his sophomore season as television’s favorite time traveler. This all encompassing four part collection features general cues on discs one and two, the complete score from the episode Heaven Sent on disc three and on disc four the Christmas Special, The Husbands Of River Song. Five time BAFTA nominee Murray Gold recently confirmed that he is stepping down from composer duties on the show after 12 years of providing some of the finest music to be heard on contemporary television. 

Underlining the breadth of Gold’s composing skill across over 149 minutes of music, this album is also the 12th Silva Screen release of his music since the 2005 Doctor Who revival. Murray Gold says - "It’s one of the last great morality tales out there but it also celebrates life. For that reason I think it’s a great show for kids. I couldn’t write this much music for it if I didn’t feel that way.”
 
I am a fan and I just say... WOW! It's one of the greatest series of music!

Milan Records: "Hereditary" Music by Colin Stetson


Hereditary is an upcoming horror film directed by newcomer Ari Aster. It follows the Grahams, a family in mourning after the passing of grandma. Annie, the family’s mother, suspects that not all is as it seems after grandma’s death – something unnatural may have been left behind. Annie’s suspicions are confirmed as the family is thrown into a nightmarish scenario of ever-increasing terror at the hands of the inexplicable. As the family turns in on itself in the throes of paranoia and despair, Annie is forced to face the darkness of their inherited fate in order for them to survive. Following lavish praise from early screenings and a successful run on the festival circuit, A24 is releasing Hereditary on June 8th, 2018.

Scoring duties on Hereditary came to Colin Stetson (Lavender, collaborator of Arcade Fire). Though his background as a saxophonist makes him an unconventional choice for horror composition, Stetson has conjured an instant classic for Hereditary using an army of strings, chimes and drones. The end result is a uniquely uneasy, sinister suite of music capped with one of the most unexpected conclusions in recent years – listeners will find themselves totally possessed. In addition to a digital and CD release, Hereditary is getting the vinyl treatment. Pressed on a pair of 180g black LPs for optimal sound quality, the release is housed in a gatefold jacket featuring liner notes from director Ari Aster. Milan Records is proud to be releasing the soundtrack to Hereditary on June 8th, 2018

Lakeshore Records: "LOST IN SPACE" Music by Christopher Lennertz


Lakeshore Records will release LOST IN SPACE - Netflix Original Series Soundtrack digitally April 13, 2018 with a CD release forthcoming. The album features original music by composer Christopher Lennertz (RIDE ALONG, MEDAL OF HONOR, MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER).
Produced by Legendary Television, LOST IN SPACE is a Netflix Original dramatic and modern reimagining of the classic 1960’s science fiction series. Set 30 years in the future, colonization in space is now a reality, and the Robinson family is among those tested and selected to make a new life for themselves in a better world. But when the new colonists find themselves abruptly torn off course en route to their new home they must forge new alliances and work together to survive in a dangerous alien environment, lightyears from their original destination. 

“When we were approaching the score for Lost In Space we knew there was a certain feeling we wanted to create for the viewers,” said Executive Producer Zack Estrin. “Following in the footsteps of the magnificent John Williams, who composed the original iconic series theme, Christopher Lennertz brought to us a vision that fit perfectly. It is full of triumphant brass and soaring strings, where orchestral melody and percussion dance seamlessly from edge of your seat thrills to simple moments of raw emotion.” 

Lennertz was excited to be the sound of this relaunch of a classic American franchise. “Zack and all the producers wanted the musical language of the title sequence to set up the score for the rest of the story, and hopefully we did just that,” Lennertz explained.  “It’s a big story with family and adventure at the very heart. I tried to be grand and heroic, with a nod to exploration, and a hint of nostalgia. I hope it resonates with fans of the show, both old and new!”

Lakeshore Records: "PATERNO" Music by composers Evgueni Galperine and Sacha Galperine


Lakeshore Records will release PATERNO - Original HBO Films digitally on April 27, 2018. The album features original music by composers Evgueni Galperine and Sacha Galperine (LOVELESS, THE WIZARD OF LIES).

Paterno centers on Penn State’s Joe Paterno in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal. After becoming the winningest coach in college football history, Paterno’s legacy is challenged and he is forced to face questions of institutional failure in regard to the victims. Academy Award and Emmy® Award winner Al Pacino stars in the film’s title role. Paterno is Pacino’s third HBO collaboration with award-winning director Barry Levinson, having starred in You Don’t Know Jack, which earned Pacino a Golden Globe® for Best Actor, an Emmy® for acting and Levinson an Emmy® nomination for directing. Pacino also starred in the title role in HBO’s Phil Spector, which Levinson executive produced.

Evgueni and Sacha Galperine, who also composed the music for THE WIZARD OF LIES, were very aware of complex undertaking of this story. “Barry [Levinson] told us that he would like to have an emotional score to reveal Joe Paterno's complex feelings but at same time he wanted to avoid playing to compassion or pity,” said composer Evgueni Galperine. “His idea was to make people understand Joe, try to imagine what they would do in his place, but in no way did Barry want the score to entice the audience to pardon Paterno.”

Sacha Galperine continued, “Our mission was to use the score to reveal Paterno's emotional and psychological journey starting with denial and fear and finishing with the understanding, guilt and profound remorse.”

It's a short score, though well done!

VCI Entertainment: "City Of The Dead" [1960]: Remastered



The City of the Dead (U.S. title: Horror Hotel) is a 1960 horror film directed by John Llewellyn Moxey and starring Christopher Lee, Venetia Stevenson, Betta St. John, Patricia Jessel and Valentine Dyall. Produced in England but set in America, the British actors were required to speak with American accents throughout.

In 1692, in the fictional Massachusetts town of Whitewood, a witch named Elizabeth Selwyn was burned at the stake. However, before her death, she managed to make a deal with the devil: he gave her eternal life in exchange for a promise eternally to create only evil.

This opening story is in reality a dramatization of the lecture on witchcraft Professor Alan Driscoll is giving to his history students at university. One of his students, Nan Barlow, is particularly interested in this subject, so the professor advises her to visit Whitewood, where she can find many interesting things on the topic. Nan goes there on vacation. Having settled in The Raven's Inn, a hotel owned by eccentric Mrs. Newless, Nan begins to study the history of the town. She gets acquainted with the only normal-seeming local resident, Patricia, and upon borrowing a book on witchcraft from her, soon learns that the very night she is there--February 1st--is also Candlemas Eve--the day when the witches sacrifice a young girl. Nan is eventually lured down to the basement of the hotel, which is actually a satanic shrine, and gets captured by Mrs. Newless and members of her coven. Newless says that she is actually the immortal Elizabeth Selwyn. To sustain her immortality, virgins must be sacrificed to the witch every year—and this year, the student is the chosen victim.
