Warning: This album is SCARRRRRY.
We’re pleased to present a wonderful compendium of songs from horror films (mostly), featuring a stellar cast of Broadway and Hollywood performers. Featuring songs from such great films as Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, The Blob, Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte, Mothra, Attack of the Puppet People, The Uninvited, Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, Who Killed Teddy Bear?, What’s the Matter With Helen, Circus of Horrors, and more, sung by Brent Barrett, Katherine Helmond, Judy Kaye, Rebecca Luker, Remy Zaken, Lynnette Perry, Alison Fraser, Tami Tappan, Jason Graae, Christiane Noll, Michelle Nicastro, Sharon McNight, and more, with special appearances by horror icon, Zacherley, and Attack of the Puppet People co-star Susan Gordon (daughter of the film’s director, Bert I. Gordon).
While the films may have been scary, the songs are anything but – the are beautiful, like the classic “Stella by Starlight” and “The Faithful Heart” (from Journey to the Center of the Earth), while others are pure fun, like Burt Bacharach’s classic song from The Blob, while some are just plain obscure yet great, like the amazing “Who Killed Teddy Bear?” from the film of the same name.
Originally released in 2003, the album has been out of print for many years. We’ve given it a fresh remastering and new cover art. Produced by Bruce Kimmel, this was the very first CD to feature the Kritzerland logo and name – a co-production with Red Circle. Kritzerland officially made its debut as a label in 2005. Orchestrations and Musical Direction by Grant Geissman (composer of Two-and-a-Half Men and Mike and Molly). - KRITZERLAND
