The score Christopher Thomas composed for the Rolfe Kanefsky horror comedy There’s Nothing Out There is receiving a CD release
Back in 1991, writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky gifted the world with the horror comedy There’s Nothing Out There (watch it HERE) – and after all this time, the score Christopher Thomas composed for the film is finally set to receive a CD release, courtesy of Klaatu Records. This release is limited to just 300 units, and copies can be pre-ordered at THIS LINK. They’re expected to start shipping out in October.
Here’s some information on There’s Nothing Out There: The 1991 independent production, written by Kanefsky when he was a high school senior, revolves around Mike (Craig Peck), a genuine horror film buff who has studied every film of the genre on home video and has a developed a sense of impending danger or doom because of it. When a group of teens show up at the nearby cabin in the woods for spring break, Mike tries to warn them about someone or something stalking them. They immediately dismiss him as watching too many movies until a murderous mutated frog starts to kill them off one by one, the horror genre’s cliches start to become frighteningly real.
The film score is by Christopher Thomas, who ramps up the scares and terror of the genre despite the films’ limited budget with much success.
And here’s the information on the CD release of Thomas’s score: – Premiere release, first time available – Pulled from only surviving cassette tapes – The Complete Original Score by Christopher Thomas – Mastered by Nick Bassett – Liner notes by writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky – Artwork Layout Design by Luis Miguel Rojas

I lucked across a late night airing of There’s Nothing Out There on The Movie Channel sometime in the early ’90s and have been a fan ever since. The movie has a cult following, but has never quite seemed to reach as many horror fans as it deserves to be seen by. I’m glad to hear that Klaatu Records is showing some love to the Christopher Thomas score, even if the release is just 300 units.
