In Antichrist, a grieving couple retreat to their cabin in the woods, hoping to fix their troubled marriage. When nature turns evil, things go from bad to worse and the true terror begins. Lars Van Trier’s shocking, dark horror thriller just celebrated its 10th anniversary in May. To commemorate the occasion, the film’s Soundtrack is coming to vinyl to the delight of audiophiles everywhere.

From The Antichrist OST Press Release
Ten years after the film’s initial release, the extreme, provocative performances from Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg in Antichrist still have the power to shock, repulse and divide audiences.
The sound design by Kristian Eidnes Andersen with Lars Von Trier, was composed using only natural sounds and samples (including internal body recordings). Each element was recorded specifically for the film and overseen by Von Trier, including a brand new, sombre performance of Händel’s ‘Lascia Ch’io Pianga’, recorded in Kastelskirken church in Copenhagen, 2009.
Antichrist OST is pressed onto heavyweight 180 gram vinyl with an etched B-Side. The vinyl is housed in a heavy 350gsm card full colour sleeve featuring the original theatrical release artwork.
Cold Spring Records brings the Antichrist OST to vinyl on September 6. You can pre-order directly from Cold Spring here!

I have to admit I haven’t seen the film. However, Willem Dafoe is great in everything, so I have to add it to my list. Any fans out there in PopHorror land? Will you snag a copy of the soundtrack on vinyl this Fall?
