HOUSE OF TERROR 40th ANNIVERSARY EDITION ON 180-gram VINYL with EXCLUSIVE GRAPHIC NOVEL!
The 1970s classic, scary Halloween album, HOUSE OF TERROR, is back on limited-edition vinyl, after over 40 years inside the Power Records archive!
Through an exclusive license with the imprint’s parent company, Inspired Studios, Inc., Studio Chikara released its first-ever album on 180gsm vinyl just in time for Halloween!
“This exciting opportunity to reissue an album I loved as a child was too good to pass by,” says Studio Chikara founder, Robert V. Conte. “One of the best spoken-word-and-sound-effects records ever made is back for an all-new generation to enjoy.”
First released in 1975 as “A Story of Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman,” House of Terror was last issued on vinyl in 1982 on 12-inch, 33-1/3 RPM vinyl. On those issues, the story took both sides of the album. This time, Studio Chikara’s Anniversary Edition is made on 180gsm vinyl with bonus content including an entire B-side of “Ghostly Sounds,” an all-new gatefold jacket, liner notes, photos, and a recolored version of the original 16-page booklet now extended to a 48-page graphic novel!
Neal Adams, the pre-eminent creator of classic stories featuring Batman, The Avengers, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, X-Men, and his own creation Armor, wrote and drew this story through his own company, Continuity Studios.
Adams passed in 2022 at the age of 80, but his family has maintained the company’s legacy.
The total print run of House of Terror 40th Anniversary Edition is strictly limited to 1,000 copies, and is being released nationwide starting on Tuesday, October 17. Two variants exist: 500 units of “Vamprye-blood Splatter” edition, and the remaining 500 copies on traditional black vinyl.
Both editions are available directly at www.studiochikara.com, eBay, and participating retailers for $49.99 each. UPC# 711574944910
“House of Terror 40th Anniversary Edition is the first of several planned vinyl reissues,” concludes Conte. “The resurgence of this genre opens several opportunities to relive history, and that’s one of Studio Chikara’s top goals.”
