‘Friday the 13th Part VIII’ Score Coming to Vinyl from Waxwork Records

In a time when 1980’s pop culture is making a total resurgence, it makes sense that a film score from that era would be released on vinyl now. Fittingly on the weekend of the title’s sake, news came out that Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan is getting the vinyl treatment for the first time from Waxwork Records.

According to the company’s web site, Waxwork Records sourced the complete score by Fred Mollin from the original 1989 master tapes. For the release they were taken from the vaults at Paramount Pictures then restored and re-mastered for vinyl.

The two-disc album package features 180 gram colored vinyl, die-cut tip-on gatefold jackets with matte satin coating, printed inner sleeves and new artwork by Anthony Petrie which can be seen below:

Although Waxwork is currently sold out through their site, pre-orders are ongoing.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
