ScoreKeeper Has Five Autographed Copies of Bear McCreary's CHILLERAMA: ZOM-B-MOVIE Soundtrack to Give Away!!

Published at: Jan. 31, 2012, 8:11 p.m. CST

Greetings! ScoreKeeper here attempting to scale down this mountain of CDs I've been tasked to give away. Next up on the docket is some real gutter gold from Galactica composer Bear McCreary. Everybody loves spending late nights feasting on pulp horror especially when it's delivered on a plate of musical badassery.

CHILLERAMA: ZOM-B-MOVIE is an anthology smorgasbord in the spirit of CREEPSHOW (1982) and TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE (1983) containing films that celebrate the golden age of late-night features. The ZOM-B-MOVIE segment was directed by Joe Lynch who also lens WRONG TURN 2 (2007).

 

 

A blurb on the label's web site sums up McCreary's take on this near-forgotten genre.

ZOM-B-MOVIE presented Bear with the opportunity to expand his musical horizon into the sounds he grew up with. “Joe’s short film required a wide swath of musical styles,” he described.  Some of his inspirations for this opus included Bernard Herrmann, Lalo Schifrin, and Jerry Goldsmith.

Also contained on the album is the song "I Don't Want to Die a Virgin" by Brendan McCreary of Young Beautiful in a Hurry.

I've got five CDs of this maniacal music and each of them is signed by composer Bear McCreary, songwriter Brendan McCreary, and director Joe Lynch. Want one?

Here's what you have to do.

Send me an email to scorekeeper@aintitcool.com using the subject: ZOM-B-MOVIE ME PLEASE! and include your name, mailing address, a valid email address, and your favorite worst movie with a great score of all time.

I'll drop all the entries in a hat and pick out five at random. Those five will each be receiving a brand new copy of CHILLERAMA: ZOM-B-MOVIE featuring music by Bear McCreary. All CDs will be autographed by Bear McCreary, Brendan MCreary, and Joe Lynch courtesy of BSX Records. The deadline submission is Saturday, February 4, 2012, at 11:59pm PST. Only one entry per person. International entries will be accepted. Duplicates will be discarded.

For more information including sound samples and purchasing information check out BuySoundtrax.com.

So get on up and send in your entry today.

    Horrid cover art = recall.

    by justmyluck

  • This guy is the real deal. Loved his compositions for Battlestar Galactica. I especially like his more orchestral and "classical" pieces, such as "Passacaglia", and the different variations on that theme (Allegro, Shape of Things to Come, Violence and Variations).

    Bear has a resemblance to Kelly Bailey

    by David_Denmans_Beard

    Kelly Bailey being a musician and game programmer formerly employed by Valve. Bear's work is better than most. How Giacchino gets put on higher call than Bear is almost a complete travesty, especially since Giacchino has fallen into regurgitating a lost of his work on LOST at every opportunity.

    Also justmyluck nailed it

    by David_Denmans_Beard

    That art is beyond terrible. I can't think of any instance where someone has salivated that excessively over a single kernel of popcorn.

    Bear gets hard at the mention of his own name.

    Genius?

    by Horse with no Name

    Just listened to a track on youtube - it really does sound like the background music of a crappy 80's movie that I would never remember after hearing it - good job, Bear! But seriously, I do like his early BSG work. Not a genius, and he deserves and is getting more and more work.

    That must be

    by HoweHatTrick

    the best popcorn ever! Anyway, got all of the BSG soundtrack CD's (old, I know), got them on the MP3, very good stuff indeed.
