Bloodsport is one of those 80's movies that you forget about sometimes, and then when you remember it was a thing, you yell at the top of your lungs and throw some karate kicks. One of the best parts of the film is the synth-heavy score from Paul Hertzog. Every part of it is so 80's it hurts, but it fits the Jean-Claude Van Damme classic like a glove. Waxwork Records now has a remastered and expanded version of the score, hitting vinyl, spread across two-colored discs, and taking preorders for shipping in January. Check it out below.

It has been so long since I have seen this film; I think I am due for a rewatch this weekend. In any case, you should go and get yourself a copy of this, as it is one of the best action film scores of the 1980s and deserves a slot on your vinyl shelves. You can order it right here.
