Waxwork Records reissues the soundtrack album from the 2007 Halloween anthology film Trick ‘R Treat as a deluxe double picture disc set. Directed by Michael Dougherty (Krampus), Trick ‘R Treat has become a modern cult-classic and October tradition alongside classic horror films like John Carpenter's Halloween. Starring Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, and Dylan Baker, Trick ‘R Treat won over fans and critics alike with it's maliciously whimsical approach of breaking down Halloween traditions. Waxwork has worked closely with both Dougherty and composer Douglas Pipes to create the ultimate Trick ‘R Treat soundtrack experience.
The expanded double LP features over an hour of music that has been mastered for vinyl and supervised by the composer. For art duties, Waxwork brought on board the incredibly talented Francesco Francavilla (Afterlife With Archie, The Black Beetle). Francavilla has worked as an in-house artist for both Marvel and DC Comics, and has created the full LP packaging artwork with approval from Dougherty, himself.
At the request of Dougherty, Waxwork acquired the full audio stems from the film to create a full bonus Spooky Sound-FX album. Like the classic Disney LPs such as Chilling, Thrilling Sounds From The Haunted House, the album takes the listener through the streets of Warren Valley, OH on a cold Halloween night filled with vampires, werewolves, rock quarry zombies, and Sam himself. It was constructed, mixed, and edited by Evan Chen, the sound designer on Dougherty's 1996 animated short Season's Greetings which features Sam's first appearance, and inspired the film Trick ‘R Treat.
