Preorders have opened at Spacelab9 for the Splatterhouse (1988) vinyl soundtrack album. Decorated with grisly custom cover artwork by Shagrat, the analog record release is estimated to ship in August with extensive liner notes by Rob Strangman.

Namco's horror-themed beat-em-up arrived in arcades in the late '80s, placing players in the role of protagonist Rick Taylor as he dawns his paranormal Terror Mask. Rick takes on unspeakable horrors in a haunted mansion in an effort to rescue his girlfriend Jennifer. Namco ported Splatterhouse to the TurboGrafx-16 console in 1990.

Preorders for the LITA clear-colored variant have opened at distributor Light in the Attic in Seattle. "Evil Cross & Nightmares (Stage 4)" from the hack-and-slash game, composed by Yoshinori Kawamoto and Katsuro Tajima of Namco Sounds, is streaming on the Spacelab9 SoundCloud channel.
