WAXWORK RECORDS, known for their deluxe vinyl reissues of popular ’80s horror scores, recently announced the release of the CHILD’S PLAY Original 1988 Motion Picture, by Joseph Renzetti! CHILD’S PLAY is a 1988 American horror film directed by Tom Holland (FRIGHT NIGHT) and starring Brad Dourif and Catherine Hicks, not to mention featuring still-impressive effects by Kevin Yagher (makeup artist for Freddy Krueger himself). CHILD’S PLAY remains one of the classic horror movies from the 1980’s slasher cannon. The Chucky character has earned his rightful place alongside Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, and Jason Voorhees.
The CHILD PLAY score is an electronic / orchestral hybrid by Joseph Renzetti (DEAD & BURIED) that was originally released on vinyl by Milan in 1989 after the theatrical release of the movie, and now nearly impossible to find. Ominous synth drones, pulsing electronic percussion, and nightmarish de-tuned harpsichords round out the terrifying score. The music of CHILD’S PLAY moves from hellish soundscapes to driving, chase-like rhythms in violent fashion.
WAXWORK worked with MGM to acquire the complete CHILD’S PLAY score from the original 1988 master tapes. The score has been re-mastered for vinyl and housed within deluxe packaging including 180 gram “Chucky” colored vinyl, new artwork by Phantom City Creative, and old style tip-on gatefold jackets with satin coating.
