I Sell The Dead Coming to Vinyl!

We're super excited to announce a second collaboration with Glass Eye Pix! Deep Focus Records will be releasing a vinyl pressing for Jeff Grace's fantastic score to I Sell The Dead, starring Dominic Monaghan, Ron Perlman, Larry Fessenden and Angus Scrimm.

We're also delighted and honored that Angus Scrimm will be contributing exclusive liner notes for the vinyl release. As many fans know, Angus was a Grammy Award-winning author of liner notes well before he became an icon of horror. Under the pen name of Rory Guy, Angus wrote for Capitol Records for decades, penning liner notes for the likes of The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole.

Upon its release, I Sell The Dead (written and directed by Glenn McQuaid) received a warm reception from horror fans and critics alike. In fact, Jeff Grace's score was also nominated for Best Score in the 2011 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards.

"The film moves with a darting confidence and it literally soars via the evocative and aggressive score by Jeff Grace." - Hammer to Nail

  • Best Independent Feature Film: Toronto After Dark Film Festival (2008)

Production Delay

One of the few downsides of the vinyl resurgence is that there are too few pressing plants to keep up with the demand.

So naturally, there has been a bit of a delay in the production process for the Hole Digger/Trawler release. We've been told that it should be shipping to us this week, so we're crossing our fingers that we're only talking about a day or so delay in shipping out the pre-orders.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

UPDATE (DEC, 3): The release shipped Monday December 2, and is heading our way! We're tracking its progress closely, and expect vinyl at our doorstep by the end of the week!
