Night Of The Living Dead (Original 1990 Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Zavvi Exclusive Solid Silver 2xLP (200 Pieces)
  • Description

    Strange Disc Records proudly presents FOR THE FIRST TIME ON VINYL: Paul McCollough’s original soundtrack to Tom Savini’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990).

    Features

    • Tom Savini’s take on George Romero’s masterpiece ‘Night Of The Living Dead’
    • Soundtrack by Paul McCollough, released for the first time on vinyl
    • Deluxe 2XLP set
    • Available as a limited colour vinyl variant, Solid Silver Vinyl - Zavvi Exclusive

    Night Of The Living Dead (1990) is a remake of George Romero’s 1968 zombie classic of the same name. Directed by Tom Savini, the film stars iconic horror actors Tony Todd (Candyman), Tom Towles (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer) & Bill Moseley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Savini was initially hired to perform the special effects, but was persuaded to direct by Romero who also rewrote the original 1968 screenplay and gave his seal of approval.
    Met with resistance at the time of release (expectancy levels were very high), nowadays the 1990 remake is appreciated by fans worldwide and has grown into a classic of its own. To quote the press:

    “Most remakes are horrible, and diverge so much from the original film…this version is so close to the original it’s scary”.

    Scoring duties were handled by writer-composer-actor Paul McCollough (known for his work on Midnight, The Crazies, Santa Claws, etc). Whilst the original film was mostly stock soundtrack, the score in Savini’s version is more 'Carpenter-esque' and the synth provides some very eerie effects used brilliantly throughout out the film.

    Paul delivers a frightening and disturbing (in all right ways) score here…giving it an atmosphere of creepy supernatural darkness and a feeling of impacting doom. Listener beware … you won't be able to listen to this without having to look behind your shoulder! 

    Now, for the first time on vinyl, Strange Disc records proudly presents a deluxe DOUBLE vinyl edition featuring Paul McCollough’s complete original score for Tom Savini’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING

    DEAD (1990). Available as a color vinyl variant (Solid Silver Vinyl)  exclusively pressed for Zavvi and limited to 200 copies.

Beautiful album

Love this remake and love its creepy soundtrack. This album was exactly what I was expecting. Great addition to my collection

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD IS A KILLER SOUNDTRACK !!!!

such a killer soundtrack and zavvi has such an amazing variant available woah!!!!!

Amazing score

While nowhere near as influential as the original, there are quite a few aspects that the 1990 remake by Tom Savini are more successful. One of those attributes would be that it added a little more depth to the story, bringing it arguably more in line with its sequels Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead. Imagine if instead of Alien Resurrection, the fourth Alien movie was a remake of Alien that added some of the more deep elements of Aliens and Alien 3. Another aspect is of course the subject of this review. Unlike the original which (skillfully) used library music, NOTLD 1990 has an original score which is really pretty great. By far my favourite piece is the end credits music, which is a fun, rocking piece, but still creepy. This is called "Passage to Normal" on the soundtrack release. The whole soundtrack is pretty synthetic sounding - I realise this will put some people off - but it's synth AS Synth, not mock orchestral, and it has a nifty, dreamlike sound. This vinyl release features lovely artwork and amazing reproduction sound.
