Friday the 13th was a movie which had shown how the slasher horror really should look like. A simple story about a group of teenagers during summer holidays, being killed one by one by a serial killer is not impressive by today’s standards. However, back in 1980 it was a breath of fresh air. Today, you as player can become both a scared camper or a powerful and demonic Jason Voorhees in this cat and mouse like game.You are a camper - use your intelligence and skills to surviveLet's be honest, a normal camper does not stand a chance against Jason Voorhees. If he is going to catch you, then you are doomed. Luckily in Friday the 13h: The Game you are not alone. Besides you, seven other people (controlled by other players) decided to camp near the damned Crystal Lake. If you want to survive, you have to cooperate in order to be able to fool Jason long enough to allow the help to come. You can also simply run away from this hell. However, if you ever watched horror movies, then you know that it won't be easy. Remember that you cannot kill him. However, you can for example use flare gun, to distract him. You can also build various traps to slow him down. The only thing that stops you is your imagination and ability to solve problems. So, are you going to survive, or will you become another victim of Jason’s huge machete?You are Jason Voorhees - just kill all people foolish enough to camp at Crystal LakeBecause of stupidity and neglectfulness of the camp counselors you drowned in the lake. However, instead of being taken to afterlife, you were revived. For many years you lived in a crude shelter in the forest but when you witnessed the death of your mother (the only person who ever cared about you) in 1979, you swore that you will kill anybody foolish enough to come to camp Crystal Lake. Your task is to murder all seven campers. You are invincible, and you have many powers, which allow you to hunt your victims one by one. Do not be so full of yourself though. Contrary to characters from the movie, these campers are smart. Thus, they can run away from you and they will use every chance to gain the advantage. Will you be able to fulfill your quest for revenge?A demanding gameplayFriday the 13th: The Game focuses entirely on multiplayer. In each round one of eight players is chosen randomly and becomes Jason Voorhees. The othershave to survive the onslaught as campers. Are you brave enough to stand against Jason?
Perhaps the one true film noir to emerge from Italy, Milano Calibro 9 is a gritty, ultra-violent masterpiece and an essential entry in the cannon of Italian crime cinema. Centering on the character of ex-con Ugo Piazza (played with stone-cold precision by Gastone Moschin) the film also benefits from the presence of giallo regular Barbara Bouchet and her considerable charms. Released after a three-year term in prison for a bungled robbery, Ugo Piazza plans to lead the straight life for a while. But no sooner is he back on the street than he’s picked up by a bunch of hoodlums under the employ of his former boss, the ‘Americano’ – among them, the psychopathic Rocco – who are convinced that Ugo stole $300,000 before his incarceration. The gang forces Ugo to resume working for them in the hope that he’ll eventually lead them to their missing cash. The first part in director Fernando Di Leo’s Milieu Trilogy, Milano Calibro 9 is an early example of the poliziotteschi – Italian crime films –which proliferated in the 1970s. Di Leo eschews the sleazy, more exploitative approach of some his contemporary filmmakers for a more serious take on his subject matter – although he’s not averse to show-stopping gun fights and long, lingering shots of the lovely Barbara Bouchet.

Waxwork Records is proud to present SORCERER Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. Directed by William Friedkin (The Exorcist, Cruising) and starring Roy Scheider, Sorcerer is a 1977 intense, existential thriller that follows four outcasts from varied backgrounds that meet in a South American village. They are then assigned to transport cargos of aged, poorly kept dynamite that is so unstable that it is sweating its dangerous basic ingredient, nitroglycerin. The mounting expense to make the film required the involvement of two major studios, and production was troubled with its various filming locations in multiple countries, often times within dangerous rainforests and raging rivers. Sorcerer was a commercial failure and this has long been attributed to the George Lucas’s Star Wars which was released one month earlier, instantly becoming a pop-culture phenomenon and forever changing how Hollywood movies were made. Sorcerer has enjoyed a critical re-evaluation and is now widely considered to be a cinematic masterpiece. The film’s music by German Krautrock and electronic group Tangerine Dream features the band’s first film score. Before the explosion of electronic and synthesizer based film scoring prevalent in the 1980’s in movies such as Blade Runner and The Terminator, and before the explosive modern day interest and revival of successful synth-scored TV series’ and movies such as Stranger Things and Drive, the music to Sorcerer by Tangerine Dream is a wildly influential blueprint and example of how movie scoring could be approached. Director William Friedkin instinctively sensed this during a chance encounter while witnessing a secret Tangerine Dream concert deep within the German Black Forest in an abandoned Church in the mid 1970’s.
