From the Singular press release: "Here at last!!!... THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED (LA RESIDENCIA, AKA “THE FINISHING SCHOOL” and WHO IS KILLING A CHILD? (¿QUIÉN PUEDE MATAR A UN NIÑO?, AKA “ISLAND OF THE DAMNED”), two masterpieces by the argentinian composer Waldo de los Ríos for the two only films ever directed by Chicho Ibáñez Serrador, absolute cult classics for all european fantastique lovers, together in a CD that will make history. After many years trying to recover this score, long awaited by the film music lovers, Singular Soundtrack located the masters of THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED, which many thought lost for ever. Hidden under other title, in a 1/4 tape with the music recorder for the film in a suite form (or “composer’s cut”), it was recently discovered in the private archives of the composer, giving us the chance to enjoy the music for first time. WHO CAN KILL A CHILD?, was released in 1976 on Hispavox as an LP (and released on CD in 2002), where there was a selection of tracks of the movie selected and edited by the composer to give the soundtrack a better chance in the general market. We have discovered and recovered the original tapes with the whole recording session, and checked that there where some fragments missing, and, most important, recorded material never used in the final cut. Remixed and remastered from the original recording tapes, this is the best way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED and enjoy WHO IS KILLING A CHILD? as it was originally created."
