It is truly the year of the Zombie! House of 1000 Corpse just celebrated twenty years of traumatizing audiences, and now Waxwork Records is partnering with Rob to release an exclusive, curated line of classic horror movie soundtracks. The Rob Zombie Presents collection will feature several never-before-released film soundtracks personally selected by the singer, songwriter, and filmmaker. The first release in the collection will be Rob Zombie Presents WHITE ZOMBIE. The 1932 classic starring Bela Lugosi is considered the first zombie movie, and has gone on to influence mainstream media, including a familiar band name. Rob Zombie has said, “It’s a great film that not a lot of people know about. It amazes me that a film that is so readily available can be so lost.”
Zombie and Waxwork have previously partnered on the official soundtracks to Zombie’s films House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, 3 From Hell, The Lords of Salem, Halloween 1 & 2, and The Munsters. Following those successful partnerships, Zombie explored additional collaborations with Waxwork. Their mission is to unearth, re-master, and release classic, left-of-center Horror soundtracks from his personal favorite films.
The collection features deluxe packaging, heavyweight colored vinyl, new artwork by prominent Horror illustrator Graham Humphreys, liner notes and interviews conducted by Rob Zombie with filmmakers and actors. Titles include premiere releases of Spider Baby, Carnival Of Souls, The Last Man On Earth, The House On Haunted Hill, Island Of Lost Souls, and many selections from the HAMMER film library.
“I have always been a huge fan of movie soundtracks. So I jumped at the opportunity to work with Waxwork on this project.” Says Zombie, “I can’t wait to release these albums. So many of these films are greatly under appreciated and, they all contain such great music. So, to be able to release these deluxe packages is a dream come true.“
