Rob Zombie is working on his new ‘Rob Zombie Presents’ reissue series, and has chosen the soundtrack to the 1932 horror film White Zombie as his first reissue in his series. White Zombie starred Bela Lugosi, and is considered to be the first-ever feature length zombie film. It was largely filmed on the Universal Studios lot using props from other horror movies at the time.
The film White Zombie is also where Zombie’s former band, White Zombie, got their name from in the mid 1980s. Says Zombie: “I have always been a huge fan of movie soundtracks, so I jumped at the opportunity to work with Waxwork on this project. I can’t wait to release these albums. So many of these films are greatly underappreciated and they all contain such great music. So to be able to release these deluxe packages is a dream come true.”
