Though the first film and its initial sequel were both December releases during their original theatrical runs, the SCREAM franchise has become a perennial favorite for Halloween - not just for the movies, but for their original soundtracks and scores. It was 20 years ago that SCREAM first thrilled audiences, and for 2016 the folks at Varèse Sarabande have issued the original SCREAM 1 & 2 scores on 180-gram vinyl, complete with incredible new cover art by artist Gary Pullin.  The first version is presented on "Bone White" colored vinyl, making it an instant collector’s item and gift for Halloween 2016, limited to just 3,000 pieces.

Scream is the most popular horror film franchise of all time, and the first three movies released between 1996 and 2000 rewrote the book for a new generation of slasher film aficionados.  A 4th scream movie was released in 2011 and MTV followed with a new Scream based TV show in 2015 that is currently in its second season.  The iconic “Ghostface” character is front and center of the all new cover art which re-tells the classic opening to the Scream film; the house and tree in the background, the knife extending into a phone receiver, the dial in Ghostface’s mouth.  The phone motif is vividly carried over to the LP labels. The music from the Scream franchise was instrumental in launching the career of Marco Beltrami, who is now one of the most popular composers in Hollywood.
