FYE will also carry a limited edition version (1500 units) on “Blood Splattered” vinyl, also being released on September 16, 2016.
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.
