Prisoners of the Ghostland is the latest wild and crazy Nicolas Cage film, and you just knew that Waxwork Records would be all over getting us the score to the film released. Done by composer Joseph Trapanese, this release will feature jacket layouts and an art print by artist Matt Needle and will come spread over two 180 gram colored vinyl discs."My score for Prisoners of the Ghostland is a love letter to my favorite films and music. You'll hear clear influences from Spaghetti Westerns and classic sci-fi, as well as from traditional Japanese music, Baroque Sarabande, and French Impressionism. For me, the collision of these musical styles with Nicolas' expressive performance and Sion Sono's beautiful images is the most gratifying result of the film." said Trapanese on his music in the film. Check out the release below.
