    HIt’s Friday the 13th — the second one this year, in fact — and Waxwork Records is once again celebrating with Jason Voorhees. This time around, they’re bringing fans the complete score to 1989’s Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.

    After working with go-to franchise composer Harry Manfredini on 1988’s Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood, composer Fred Mollin went solo for the eighth entry, eschewing the traditional strings for a more electronic-based score.

    Now, the whole shebang is finally available on vinyl. As per tradition, Waxwork went straight to the original master tapes — dusted off from deep within the Paramount vaults — and they’ve since restored and remastered the sounds.

    Pressed to “NYC Grime” and “Hot Pink Flying V” 180 gram colored vinyl, the 2xLP package comes housed in an interactive die-cut jacket featuring original artwork by Anthony Petrie. Seriously, this thing looks like it’s been pulled right outta the late ’80s.

    Pre-orders are currently on-going.
