STORM WARNING & CRAWLSPACE Soundtracks Issued by Howlin’ Wolf Records – Scores by Jamie Blanks
Howlin’ Wolf Records presents a 2-CD set with music composed and performed by accomplished director and composer Jamie Blanks – STORM WARNING (2007) and CRAWLSPACE (2012). Both scores won “Best Musical Score” at Screamfest the only two years Blanks entered scores for competition at the festival. Renowned and award-winning for both directing and composing, Jamie Blanks is best known as the director of both URBAN LEGEND (1998) and VALENTINE (2001), and the director/composer/editor of both STORM WARNING (2007) and LONG WEEKEND (2008). CRAWLSPACE (2012) is the directorial debut of Justin Dix, Blanks’ practical effects and make-up wizard. Like Blanks with his two wins for “Best Musical Score,” Dix won “Best Makeup and Effects” at Screamfest in 2007 and 2012.
STORM WARNING stars Nadia Farès, Robert Taylor, and David Lyons, and follows a yuppie couple lost in a thick, brush-filled marsh who seek refuge at an isolated farmhouse only to discover they’ve jumped out of the frying pan into the fire, while CRAWLSPACE stars Amber Clayton, Ditch Davey, and Eddie Baroo and is about an army special forces unit sent to infiltrate Pine Gap Australia’s top secret underground military compound, which comes under attack from unknown forces.
With a foreword by author Mike Thorn, detailed notes on both scores by Jamie Blanks, and an epilogue by author Adrian Roe, the STORM WARNING/CRAWLSPACE CD features Howlin’ Wolf Records’ most extensive packaging to date with a 32-page, full-color booklet, stunning photography by both Terry Hope and Hugh Fleming, and gorgeous original artwork by Hugh Fleming, all gloriously crafted and designed by longtime Howlin’ Wolf Records Art Director, Luis Miguel Rojas.
