Varèse Sarabande Releasing 4-LP Vinyl Score Collection for ‘Scream’ Franchise

As the latest installment of Scream lands in theaters this winter, Varèse Sarabande revisits Marco Beltrami’s masterful scores from the horror franchise’s first four films with Scream: Original Motion Picture Soundtracks.

The 4-LP set—pressed on blood-red vinyl with black smoke swirls—dedicates a full album to each film and includes two hours of unreleased material. In all retail stores June 10 2022 and available for pre-order today, the collection is housed in a unique jacket, which folds out into a 3’ x 2’ Ghostface mask.

For fans seeking additional content, the 6-CD and digital editions (both available today) offer each film’s score in its entirety, plus more than four hours of unreleased music, previously unreleased demos, cues, and alternate takes. The CD box set is available exclusively on VareseSarabande.com and Intl.VareseSarabande.com and limited to 1,800 units. Both the CD and vinyl versions feature new, in-depth liner notes from film music journalist and author, Jim Lochner.

In 1996, Scream ushered in a new generation of slasher flicks—mixing self-awareness and satire with chills, gore, and plenty of plot twists. Written by Kevin Williamson (Dawson’s Creek, The Vampire Diaries) and directed by horror pioneer Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Hills Have Eyes, Swamp Thing), Scream flipped the genre on its side. As Lochner writes, “Williamson populated the film with characters who knew about other horror films, spent much of their time referencing other horror films, and even recognized they were living inside of a horror film.”
