Waxwork Records revealed today that it is handling the vinyl release of the Starry Eyes soundtrack. This is significant in that it’s the first contemporary score Waxwork is releasing. Previous releases include Re-Animator, Day of the Dead, Rosemary’s Baby, Creepshow and Chopping Mall. Friday the 13th is on the way later this month.
Starry Eyes‘ score was composed by Room 237‘s Jonathan Snipes. You can read my review of the film – which wowed me at SXSW – right here. Dark Sky Films is distributing; we’re just awaiting a release date. Get a sample of the score below.
The film – directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch - tells the story of Sarah Walker, a determined and desperate actor who would do anything to land her first big role. Unfortunately, this leaves her prey to a satanic cult who has been operating as Hollywood’s gatekeepers since the Golden Age. They have the power to make her a star, but it comes at a terrible price. What follows is an occult tale of paranoia and possession that explores themes of transformation, body horror and a woman going through a psychotic breakdown.
