Born in 1936 in New York City, David Hess began his career recording million-dollar chart toppers for the likes of Elvis Presley, Sal Mineo & Andy Williams in the 50ies & 60ies. His biggest hit is probably ‘Speedy Gonzales’ which ended up selling more than eight million copies worldwide. After a career as a record company executive the 1970s, Hess took on the role of actor, writer, director and producer in the movie industry. Writing and working with directors as Rainer Werner Fassbinder and directing the 1980 slasher “To All A Good Night” were only a few of his many accomplishments.

Most of us will remember him as Krug Stillo, the leader of a gang in Wes Craven's classic 1972 cult shocker “The Last House On The Left” as well as portraying the villains in Ruggero Deodato’s “House on the Edge of the Park” (1980) and Wes Craven’s “Swamp Thing” (1982). Other movie roles include ’21 Hours At Munich’, ‘Hitch-Hike’, ‘Body Count’ and ‘Zodiac Killer’. David Hess also appeared regularly on the TV screen with appearances in shows such as ‘Knight Rider’, ‘The A-Team’, ‘The Fall Guy’ & ‘Royal Pains’.
Throughout his film career Hess' love for music never waned. He continued to produce music, including several albums ("Caught Up In The Moment" and "Live & Unplugged in Hollywood, 2002."). Some of his music can also be heard on more recent soundtracks, such as ‘Cabin Fever’ (2002) and ‘Manhunt’ (2008). On October 7, 2004 just two years after his role in the 2009 horror epic “Smash Cut” starring Sasha Grey, David Hess sadly passed away at the age of 75. He will forever be in our hearts.


David Hess composed the soundtrack for ‘Last House on the Left’ & his work here contains some truly beautiful songs, the discovery of which, for some, may be in stark contrast to the brutal displays of sadism and violence for which he was known to purvey onscreen. The fact that Hess could perform as both the poet, and the monster, is a testament to his skill as an artist. The soundtrack to Last House On The Left is a brilliantly unique and diverse mixture of farcical comedy, poignant, reflective folk music and instrumental experimentalism. Hess constructed a wonderful counterbalancing entity, which serves only to accentuate the impact of the movie.

One Way Static Records now proudly presents the complete 1972 soundtrack to Wes Craven's ‘THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT’ composed by David Alexander Hess. Available as a limited color vinyl variant (100 copies SOLID SILVER vinyl) complete with insert containing rare pictures and exclusive liner notes. EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE FROM ZAVVI.

Sleazy Listening

I love this soundtrack, had the pleasure of meeting David Hess (RIP) and he couldn't of been further from his on screen persona. Charming, gentle and really engaging. The songs on here are not what you'd expect for a sleazy horror flick but for me just added to the general uneasy genius of it.

Great record

Great vinyl. Really like the colour of the record disc. Good soundtrack and sound.

Only 100 available, snap one up now

One of the original video nasties that most certainly earns that title ( along with Cannibal Holocaust, where is our soundtrack to that movie Zavvi? ). A guneuinly scary movie. Seriously need a comedy movie to follow after watching. Strange double bill I know but in this case I most certainly believe it is required. The one movie in which I genuinely felt scared for the actresses playing the victims. And some of the fear comes from the strangely melancholic at times soundtrack with ballads that do not match what is happening on screen until that is you pay attention to the lyrics then the songs can be just as mean. If one can hunt down the limited edition box set from arrow video loaded as per usual from them with special features plus the soundtrack on CD and of course Zavvi do a steelbook of the movie.

Last House vinyl

Came in great condition & quality of the LP was fantastic. Haven't played it yet as it will be mounted in frame seeing as it is limited to 1000 prints in this coloured vinyl.
