detectives known as GHOSTBUSTERS perfectly melded humor and horror into an
iconic film still popular today as it was almost 30 years ago. It’s little
wonder, then that the Ghostbusters has had such a huge marketing appeal,
ranging anywhere from toys to cartoons, and leaving a very permanent mark on
the comic market. The franchise has spent years floating from company to company
(even making a pit stop at Tokyopop for a manga do-over), but it has recently
planted its feet with industry bad boy IDW. THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS picks up right
where the IDW GHOSTBUSTERS left off, this time sending our boys in gray
jumpsuits into a strange world possessed by the unknown.

Australia based FANGORIA contributor Lee Gambin is following
up his terrific natural horror movie reference tome MASSACRED BY MOTHER NATURE
with a seriously ambitious project. Titled BLOOD AMONG THE STARS, Gambin and

classic and influential 1976 impression of Stephen King’s first novel, CARRIE.
FANGORIA readers will have seen Gambin’s CARRIE-obsessed
work splattered all over our magazine for years, especially with his fantastic

recently with features on William Katt and Pino Donaggio in our latest issue,
our own love-letter to both De Palma and CARRIE, issue #321.

interviews Gambin and Clark are amassing exclusively for this book, including a
lengthy chat with Stephen King and almost every other living member of the key
cast and crew.

Fantastic music, wonderful art; expect its selling out to haunt you.
Expected on sale February 22 at a random time (announced via Twitter), the POLTERGEIST 2xLP set sees great work from Australian illustrators Sonny Day and Biddy Maroney (who together make up the collective We Buy Your Kids) and very obviously, wonderful work from Goldsmith (GREMLINS, THE OMEN, CHINATOWN).
Mondo writes the soundtrack “formed a significant part of the 1982 film’s conceptual strength. Known for the intensity of his thematic exposition, Goldsmith designs the POLTERGEIST soundtrack to elaborately ground the film between the promise of suburban repose and the malevolent unknown. Beginning in innocence with a classic rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner,” the soundtrack parallels the film’s intrusion of angry ghosts into the California home of the film’s protagonists with dreadful strings and eerie keys. Goldsmith then switches to airier strings and an ethereal flute to denote the family’s fumbling after their daughter, Carol Anne, is abducted. Utilizing frenzied horn blasts and a sudden lapse into atonalism, the composer ominously signifies the emergence of the Beast. Goldsmith, seemingly effortless, concludes the frantic drama of “Escape From Suburbia” in stark contrast with the sweet and child-like tones of “Carol Anne’s Theme,” elegantly illustrating the dignity and range that his orchestral scores for horror modeled within the genre.”
Check out the frame-worthy set and follow Mondo on Twitter for more.
