Waxwork Records is proud to present the debut vinyl release of THE SENTINEL Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Gil Mellé. The Sentinel is a 1977 American supernatural Horror film directed by Michael Winner (Death Wish, Death Wish II). The plot focuses on a young model (Cristina Raines) that moves into a historic Brooklyn brownstone that has been sectioned into apartments, only to find out that the building is owned by the Catholic diocese and is a gateway to Hell. The film features early acting roles by several now-household-name actors such as Christopher Walken, Jeff Goldblum, and John Carradine.

Following a string of supernatural Horror films such as Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, and The Omen, The Sentinel is based off the 1974 novel of the same name by Jeffrey Konvitz. Unlike other films of its time dealing in topics of the occult, The Sentinel features strong visuals and depictions of creatures from Hell as they appear in the works of Dante's Inferno, Christopher Marlowe, and the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch.

We are beyond thrilled to release THE SENTINEL Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for the very first time on vinyl. Featuring "Gateway to Hell" Metallic Gold with Black Smoke colored vinyl, Artwork by Robert Sammelin, heavyweight gatefold packaging with matte satin coating, and a 12"x12" art print.
