THE BOOGEY MAN [Soundtrack]

Howlin' Wolf Records Releases: "The Boogey Man" [1980] and "Jacob [2014]"

Music by: Tim Krog 
One of several horror films released at the height of the slasher movie craze of the late 1970s and early 1980s, The Boogey Man is an effective mash-up of supernatural cinema’s greatest hits that has developed a strong cult following. Director and co-writer Ulli Lommel was born into a show business family, and began his career as an actor in the German film industry in the 1960s. Striking up a relationship with the celebrated filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Lommel went on to collaborate with him on over twenty projects.
Proud to announce for the first time on Cd and a great iconic score that is music composed and performed by Tim Krog. From our label, Howlin' Wolf Records... we bring you the score to 1980's cult classic "THE BOOGEY MAN"!

Music by: Iain Kelso 
The Kell household is far from what you would call an ideal family. Otis is the new head of the household and he makes sure that everyone abides to his rules – when his wife Edith makes a small mistake, Otis severely beats her for her misdemeanor. The violent attack is witnessed by Edith’s young daughter Sissy, who is so accustomed to these attacks that she tends to her mother’s wounds between tea parties. Her guest at these parties is her older brother Jacob, a dimwitted young man who is insanely protective of his sister. When one of Otis’ rage attacks is targeted against the girl, Jacob immediately kills him and lets the decades of regret and humiliation take over his mind. Add in a supernatural twist and with nothing to lose, Jacob turns his wrath against the town that let this tragedy happen.

You know we all have a special friend like Jacob, always looking out for you... well then you should always look over your shoulder. Howlin' Wolf Record releases it's 21st score to the disturbing film "JACOB" composed by Iain Kelso and it's dark piece. I like it, it's good to listen to as you make your way home in the deepest darkest woods.

Screamworks Records: Dead Within [2014] - Joshua Bradford and Clayton Worbeck

Screamworks Records presents the chilling ambient horror soundtrack to the Canadian survival horror Dead Within, composed by Joshua Bradford and Clayton Worbeck (Stayte, Revolting Cocks, Ministry). Directed by Ben Wagner, the film is set six months after a devastating outbreak that has all but ended the human race. A man named Mike (Dean Chekvala, True Blood) and a woman named Kin (Amy Cale Peterson, Southbounders) have survived for such a long time only by isolating themselves in a remote cabin and never opening the door. Now that they are finally starved for resources, they have no choice but to confront the horrors awaiting inside and outside.

The soundtrack for Dead Within is courtesy of Joshua Bradford and Clayton Worbeck, two veteran heavyweights of the Canadian industrial music scene. Bradford and Worbeck first played together in the industrial rock band Stayte, then later joined Revolting Cocks as a singer and keyboardist respectively. Worbeck also frequently worked together with Ministry, his remix of the band's "Death and Destruction" was featured on the Saw V Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Their collaboration on Dead Within marks the duo’s first, but hopefully not last venture into feature film scoring.

"It was a pleasure to work on this score because of the clear intent to blur the lines between the score and the sound design" explains co-composer Clayton Worbeck. "This approach gave us the freedom to create some incredibly dark, tense compositions that creep and claw into each other as the two characters make their way through hell on Earth. Embedded in all this darkness and insanity is a strong bond of love and trust slowly eroding away. This decay of faith influenced much of my work on the score."

The soundtrack has a digital release date of  September 9, 2014.

Intrada: SEE NO EVIL [1971-2014] - Elmer Bernstein

The 1971 Columbia thriller See No Evil pits a blind woman against a savage killer. The film is spotted very sparingly, allowing many tense scenes to play out unscored. Even within composer Elmer Bernstein’s cues the music is often made more powerful by being silent. Chamber music textures abound throughout the orchestration. Bernstein’s use of strings, alto flute, piano, electric guitar, forceful trombone octaves, bass clarinet, glittering glockenspiel, brittle xylophone, clarinet doubled two octaves higher by piccolo are colors carefully calculated to make the most impact but often with the least “noise.” Everything in this
concise-but-superb score has its point.

For this premiere release of Elmer Bernstein’s complete soundtrack (the third and final score commissioned for the film), Intrada fortunately was able to locate the two-track stereo session masters, recorded and mixed by Richard Lewzey at Cine-Tele Sound Studios (CTS) in London in July 1971. For decades these tapes appeared to have been lost but, in fact, they survived in full stereo and in beautiful condition, with every cue present—including Bernstein’s three brief original source music cues.

In the film, Sarah (Mia Farrow), a young woman recently blinded in a horse-riding accident, is adjusting to her new circumstances under the loving care of her aunt, uncle and cousin. One morning she wakes and, thinking everyone else is still asleep, goes to the kitchen to make coffee. She has no idea that her cousin lies dead in the next bed, that her uncle’s bloody corpse lies in the bathtub and that her aunt’s dead eyes are staring at her from the living room. Nor does she realize that the murderer’s safety will soon hinge on one more death: hers.

Intrada: SWITCHBACK (REISSUE) - Basil Poledouris

Back by popular demand, Intrada presents a straight reissue of the first Special Collection release from 2000.  Composer Basil Poledouris chose to anchor his score around a brief 3-note motif, heard at the very beginning of the score on solo flute.  Extremely flexible, this motif worked alone, sometimes expanded into longer ideas, blended with more abstract material and played as a muscular line for the action music. No matter what direction the music takes, the motif is close at hand, opening the score, following characters in and out, boarding the “218” and finishing it all. As the emotional centerpiece to his music, Poledouris chose the Rockies, letting the motif act as a signature for the snowcovered peaks.

For outdoor settings Poledouris used a full symphony orchestra and a rich harmonic palette. For suspenseful segments he utilized electronic timbres and more abstract sounds. The violent scenes received some of the composer’s fiercest orchestral writing. But it was the speeding “218” that inspired a scoring highlight: energetic rhythms for low brass and percussion under fortissimo quotes of the primary motif.    His work for the Conan series, Red Dawn, and Under Siege 2 are forerunners to this large, exciting orchestral work recorded with the Seattle Symphony.

Switchback tells the story of obsessed FBI Special Agent Frank LaCrosse who's been playing cat and mouse for what seems an eternity, tracking a serial killer. His cross-country search takes a startling turn when this same killer kidnaps his son. The resulting conflict of interest pulls him from the case, but LaCrosse becomes more determined than ever to locate his quarry.

Composed and Conducted by ELMER BERNSTEIN
INTRADA Special Collection Vol. 292
The General Electric Theater presented adaptations of popular plays, short stories, novels and films in a half-hour anthology series starring top Hollywood and Broadway talent. The format accommodated live telecasts originating from both coasts and telefilms, with Ronald Reagan hosting the show from its third season to its last and provided a voice for General Electricâ?'s public relations campaign.

Starting in 1958, the show made the switch from library music to original scores, with composer Elmer Bernstein spearheading the changeover. Each week Bernstein came up with an entirely new score (save for the main theme), usually using an orchestra of 25 players.  To Bernstein, the challenge and fun came from the different kinds of stories and the musical challenges each presented.

General Electric Theater left behind a dramatic legacy of 200 half-hour programs representing some of the best that Golden Age television had to offer. Fortunately for music lovers, Columbia Records in a rare move for 1959 issued this album of score highlights recorded by Bernstein with an orchestra of 45-50 players (nearly double the size used on the series itself), never before available on CD and presented from the original master tapes preserved in the Sony vaults.

Fueled by engaging performances from Golden Globe® nominee Guy Pearce (Memento, L.A. Confidential) and what Variety calls “a career-redefining performance from Robert Pattinson” (The Twilight Saga franchise, Cosmopolis), The Rover arrives on Blu-ray™ Disc (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) September 23 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The tension-filled film, which was released theatrically by A24, was an Official Selection of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. The Rover, directed by visionary writer/director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom), also stars Scoot McNairy (TV’s “Halt and Catch Fire,” upcoming Gone Girl).

Set in a world 10 years into the general collapse of society, The Rover follows hardened loner Eric (Pearce) as he travels the desolate towns and roads of the outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car, they leave behind a wounded Rey (Pattinson). Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that still matters to him.
Two actors I never thought I would like together, times are changing even if it's apocalyptic.
