ScoreKeeper Has Five CDs of HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP by James Horner to Give Away!


ScoreKeeper here from the deep to let you humanoids know about a new CD soundtrack giveaway I'm scaring up. Right now composer James Horner is putting the finishing touches on the score for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (2012). To quench some of the anticipation, I thought I would give away five copies of one of his earliest and most bodacious scores.

Before Horner established his reputation for kick-ass orchestral scores like STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN (1982) and ALIENS (1986), he was dishing out heaping spoonfuls of kitschy coolness for one of the most well-known producers in show business. HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP (1980) is one of three scores (along with BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS, 1980) that Horner composed for producer Roger Corman in the early 80s. It was during his time at New World Pictures that Horner established connections with future-star filmmakers including Ron Howard, James Cameron, John Sayles, and Gale Ann Hurd.

BSX Records recently released a new soundtrack for HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP featuring the original motion picture score composed by James Horner. Including on the album are score selections from the 1996 remake composed by Christopher Lennertz.


I have in my possession five copies of the soundtrack that need good homes and loving ears. Want one? Here's what you have to do…

Send me an email to using the subject: HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP! and include your name, mailing address, a valid email address, and your favorite Roger Corman produced film of all time. I'll drop all the names into a virtual hat and randomly select five winners who will be receiving one CD of HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP courtesy of BSX Records. The deadline for submission is Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 11:59pm CST. Only one entry per person. International entries will be accepted. Duplicates will be discarded.

Enter now before the humanoids get you...they're from the deep, you know?

    Hey ScoreKeeper!

    by rakesh patel

    Do you perchance have a spotify account? It would be handy if AICN had one, so you could create a movie playlist we could all check out. Just a thought.

    No spotify account. Not a bad idea. I'll look into it. Ya, I have the BBTS/HFTD combo disc too which is great but since BSX released the expanded BBTS it's nice to have a companion HFTD (even though there's only one bonus track of outtakes). THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER should be cool too. Maybe I could get a giveaway of that score.

    They seek human women. Not for food. For mating.

    I saw this in a theater. Worst movie imaginable. Almost as stupid as 'Avatar'.

    Honestly, why is this covered here?

    by caprica

    There can't be more than a handful of people besides scorekeeper who honestly care about movie scores that much. They love them when they are good, hate them when they are bad, and the other 90% are completely un-noticed. Or maybe I'm wrong? what's next, a special contributor to write about set decoration?

    Why do movies (however minor) always get soundtrack albums.

    by cookylamoo

    But half of Broadway Shows don't.

    I think this score is getting a release because it's Horner

    by Robert Evans

    You can hear some Wolfen and Brainstorm and even Aliens in there..

    you may be right about only a handful of people listening to film scores (you arent btw) but those people would come to a site like this as well as other film score related sites to discuss these topics.
