The latest CD from Caldera is the first ever release of Gabriel Yared's score from director Paul Schrader's 2008 Holocaust drama ADAM RESURRECTED, starring Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe.


Kritzerland's latest is the first-ever release of the score from 1957's MONSTER FROM GREEN HELL, about scientists menaced by giant, radiation-mutated wasps in Africa. The score was composed by B-movie great Albert Glasser (The Amazing Colossal Man, Earth vs. the Spider, Tormented).


Intrada plans to release one new CD next week.


Varese Sarabande plans to announced three new Limited Edition CDs next week.


John Williams won this year's Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS; this is his 23rd Grammy.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?


ANGUISH - James Curd
 
"Trying his directorial hand after working as a producer on a handful of middle-grade horror films ('The Stranger,' 'The Roommate'), Mallhi struggles with the self-seriousness of his subject matter. His shots are all portentous darkness and dreary suburban houses, signifiers of detachment and malaise, while melancholy guitar-picking constitutes the soundtrack."
 
Abby Garnett, Village Voice
 
THE LAST WITCH HUNTER - Steve Jablonsky
 
"In its favor, 'The Last Witch Hunter' boasts some terrific production design and digital effects, notably the Witch Queen's lair and a creature called the Sentinel, both nightmarish pagan constructions of shape-shifting wood and bone. A couple of late plot twists also feel refreshingly left-field, even if they are shameless signposts for future sequels. Less impressively, Eisner’s movie is clogged with cardboard characters, flat dialogue and a sluggish middle act that gets lost in too much fabricated witchy folklore. Steve Jablonsky's ever-present, over-insistent orchestral score also grates on the nerves before long. Fast and furious on the surface, shallow and conventional beneath, Diesel's bid to carve himself another billion-dollar franchise is off to a good start with this mainstream crowd-pleaser."
 
Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter
