Alan Howarth Collection Volume 1 is an album featuring music composed and performed by Alan Howarth for three recent horror films from his filmography presented here on two CDs.
Released in 2008, EVILUTION details what happens when an infectious bio weapon developed by the military gets loose and begins infecting people, turning them into vicious killers. The first of two feature films that Chris Conlee would direct (the bulk of Conlee’s film work would be as an assistant or supervising editor), EVILUTION starred Eric Peter-Kaiser, who also co-produced the film with his Canadian production company.
Released in 2007, HEADLESS HORSEMAN tells the story of seven college kids who take a shortcut on their way to a party and find themselves in the town of Wormwood, where a ghostly headless horseman has taken up seasonal residence and begins to hunt them down one by one.
In 2009, Howarth was hired to score HIGHWAY HUNTER, which was ostensibly based on a true story. The film starred scream queen Danielle Harris, Doug Jones, and Lance Henriksen. After initial discussions about the score for the film, the director returned to Chicago to complete post-production there while Howarth composed, recorded, and mixed his score in Los Angeles.
