BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK LP (Death Waltz Recording Co.)
Deep in the Carpathian Mountains, in the country of Transylvania, lies the castle of one who would have domain over all evil on Earth ... and with that blood and the fury comes the captivating and hypnotic music of BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA. Directed by cinema legend Francis Ford Coppola, the film looks back to the original 1897 text for a unique, blood-soaked vision. For the score, Coppola picked the great Polish composer Wojciech Kilar, whose brooding themes and dark choral textures have become the standard for the music of vampiric cinema. Working with Coppola's vision of the film as a tragic love story, Kilar conjured up a heartbreakingly beautiful, yet violent, tone poem that exquisitely encapsulates the darkness and passion of Stoker's classic narrative. However, love never dies, and neither does great music.

THE NIGHT HOUSE - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK LP (Death Waltz Recording Co.)
A death in the family can be terrifying by itself, but all the more when you're alone, and you don't know who to turn to. Such is the predicament in THE NIGHT HOUSE, directed by David Bruckner (THE SIGNAL) and starring Rebecca Hall (THE GIFT) as Beth, a widow whose husband has unexpectedly died. This leaves her alone in a house he built, where she witnesses a terrifying ghostly presence and a feeling that his death and life are a mystery to be unravelled. Scoring THE NIGHT HOUSE is Ben Lovett (THE WIND), who creates a mix of emotional melodies and unsettling tonalities that drive the tension as the audience slips deeper and deeper into Beth's mysteries. Lovett anchors the score with a beautiful and warm theme on low strings, together with a counterpoint of lonely and echoing solo piano that acts as a conduit for the more uncomfortable soundscapes introduced. Pulsating electronics layered over high string music box melodies grab the score's fabric and draw out the intensity until the final moments of euphoria. Only by experiencing this ordeal can you learn the absolute truth of THE NIGHT HOUSE. (Charlie Brigden)

THE STYLIST - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP (Burning Witches Records)
In conjunction with Arrow Video, Burning Witches Records is excited to announce the original motion picture soundtrack to The Stylist by Nicholas Elert. Nicholas Elert captures the mood perfectly for the female-led psychological horror: full-on atmospherics and lonely tinkling piano make up the backbone for this wonderfully dark score to become obsessed with. We all dream of being someone else … but for Claire (Najarra Townsend, Contracted), that dream goes from an obsession to a living nightmare. A hairstylist by day, but a serial killer and collector of scalps by night, Claire's lonely existence is thrown into turmoil when her regular client, Olivia (Brea Grant, After Midnight, Lucky), asks her to style her hair for her wedding day. The Stylist offers viewers "a delicately deranged glimpse into social anxiety and loneliness" (Slashfilm) – a bold and mesmerizing debut feature from a filmmaker to watch.
