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 email@example.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.
