The Exorcist III Vinyl Soundtrack from Waxwork Records

It’s a wonderful life, because The Exorcist III‘s soundtrack is coming to vinyl from Waxwork Records. Priced at $40, it’s expected to ship on May 27.

Sourced from the original masters, the score is composed by Barry De Vorzon (The Warriors, Night of the Creeps). It’s pressed on 150-gram neon pink and purple smoke colored vinyl.

The album is housed in a gatefold jacket with matte satin coating featuring artwork by Suspiria Vilchez and a 12×12 booklet with liner notes by De Vorzon.

Rob Zombie Figure from McFarlane Toys

McFarlane Toys recently launched a Music Maniacs line with Ozzy Osbourne and Alice Cooper. Rob Zombie will be the latest rocker to join in July.

Priced at $24.99, the 6″ scale figure is ready to dig through the ditches and burn through the witches with an appearance based on 1998’s “Dragula” music video.

It features 12 points of articulation and comes with a microphone and mic stand figure base, along with a numbered certificate of authenticity out of 6,200.

Toxic Crusader Pillow Buddy from Brain Candy

Snuggle with Toxie without the concern of radioactivity thanks to Brain Candy’s Toxic Crusaders pillow buddy.

Limited to 50, the plush doll stands 22″ tall and features front and back designs. It costs $45 and is expected to ship in six weeks.

Sting Blu-ray from Well Go USA

Currently available on VOD, Sting will crawl onto Blu-ray on July 30 via Well Go USA. The creature feature boasts practical spider effects by WETA Workshop (The Lord of the Rings, Krampus).

In Meagan Navarro’s review, she says “Sting is at its strongest when it focuses on the horror. The steady build-up to its showstopper finale offers tense spider horror moments as Sting slinks around air ducts or darkened corners and delivers more than one gnarly death.”

Kiah Roache-Turner (Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead) writes and directs. Alyla Browne, Penelope Mitchell, Ryan Corr, and Jermaine Fowler star.

Three featurettes are included: Creating the Monster, The Director, and The Cast.
