Richard Stone’s Pumpkinhead
May 4, 2019
PUMPKINHEAD Soundtrack Gets New Standalone CD Release
PUMPKINHEAD, originally released in 1988 by United Artists, was the directorial debut for Stan Winston, creature maker & special effects master extraordinaire. The film stars Lance Henriksen, John D’Aquino and Kerry Remsen in a dark fairy tale of revenge and redemption. The score by Richard Stone is melodic and authentic, a mix of acoustic instruments and country rhythms. Stone went on to become what many called the heir to Carl Stalling. The world lost a true talent when Stone passed away in 2001 at the very young age of 47.
Originally released for the first time as part of Varese Sarabande’s Little Box of Horrors 12-CD set, Notefornote music has reissued this with a unique graphic design, featuring insightful commentary notes by composer Edwin Wendler, and with jewel case packaging for those who missed out on the box set or decided to wait for a separate release.
This release is limited to 666 copies, and will ship the week of May 20th. For more information, and to hear audio samples, see notefornotemusic
