Like Evelyn, the soundtrack for The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave (1981) has risen to visit the Earth once more courtesy of Mondo and Death Waltz Recording Company. Also in today's Highlights: three new clips from Fear Inc., details on the one-shot comic, Dante, and a look at the Don't Knock Twice demo Trailer.
Mondo and Death Waltz Recording's The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave Vinyl Soundtrack: From Mondo: "Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to exhume another classic soundtrack from the world of horror cinema with Bruno Nicolai's incredible score to the 1981 Emilio Miraglia Giallo The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave (aka La Notte Che Evelyn Usci Dalla Tomba). The film is as mad as its title; Evelyn is dead before it starts and her previously institutionalized husband Alan, who has begun to murder strippers as a form of therapy, is duped by his cousin who wants to rid of his heir. Oh, and there's the matter of Evelyn's resurrection and a whole dose of other murders - it's unreal.
Adding to the surrealism of the situation is Nicolai's deranged score that mixes super effective jarring orchestral with electronic effects and speed jazz that has truly disconcerting time signatures. It's absolutely creepy and utterly terrifying with queasy quivering synthesizers that sound like an entire wave of insects and the juxtaposition of a fantastic bass line with a sawing string effect that is just sickening. And then there's the beautiful typical romantic Giallo melody that really stands out, with vocals courtesy of the iconic Edda Dell'Orso. (Charlie Bridgen - Editor: Films On Wax).

Watch Three Clips from Fear Inc.: "What if there was a company you could call that, for a premium, will bring your fears to life. You don’t have to leave your house, your office, or your vacation; the scares are customized to your tastes and arrive at your doorstep when you least expect it. But like texting an ex at 2am, what sounds like a great idea at the time, can end up getting you killed.
When horror movie enthusiast Joe Foster (Lucas Neff) and his girlfriend, Lindsey Gains (Caitlin Stasey), are handed a business card for such a company, Joe’s curiosity gets the best of him. As the Fear, Inc experience seemingly begins, scares start popping up right out of Joe’s favorite horror movies, quickly turning him into a kid in a candy store. If the kid was a self-righteous thirty-year-old and the candy store was the prop room from SAW. After a friend explains the company’s dangerous reputation, his rollercoaster of a journey goes from light-hearted fun to uncomfortably realistic as things take a major turn for the worse. Joe’s sense of reality spirals out of control as he’s forced to take responsibility for his actions, no matter the cost."
Directed by Vincent Masciale from a screenplay by Luke Barnett, Fear, Inc. stars Lucas Neff, Caitlin Stasey, Chris Marquette, Stephanie Drake, Patrick Renna, Eric Lange, Naomi Grossman, Mark Moses, and Abigail Breslin.
Released by Electric Entertainment, Fear Inc. is available now on VOD and digital platforms.
Dante One-Shot Comic Details: Press Release: "Fan-favorite writer and Top Cow COO Matt Hawkins (SYMMETRY, THINK TANK) teams up with all-star artist Darick Robertson (HAPPY!, Transmetropolitan, TheBoys) and co-writer Jason Ning for DANTE, a gritty, supernatural thriller one-shot from Image Comics and Top Cow Productions this January.
Dante was a family man with a wife and a young daughter—and also a top assassin working for an international crime syndicate. For two decades, he worked hard to keep those two lives separate. Manipulated into thinking he could retire with the syndicate's blessing, Dante is betrayed. While fighting to save himself, he accidentally kills a young Asian boy—an act which changes him forever. Cursed, and covered with otherworldly tattoos, Dante embarks on a journey to uncover the source of this supernatural affliction and to save his family.
"When Cryptozoic and Strange Turn asked if I'd be interested in working on a book with Darick Robertson, I had to pinch myself at first to see if I was dreaming it," said Hawkins. "Darick is one of those artists that writers dream of collaborating with, and working with him was one of my most fulfilling experiences in comics thus far!"
"Working with Matt, Jason, and the whole Cryptozoic team was an excellent experience,” said Robertson. "The script is moody and gritty, which fit nicely into my artistic wheelhouse. The colors are by the ever incredible Diego Rodriguez, and I believe this is some of our best work to date."
DANTE ONE-SHOT (Diamond code: NOV160552) hits comic book stores Wednesday, January 25th. Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, December 12th."
