"Horrible Sounds of Halloween" Cassette


Okay, here it is, the final (and late) Freebie Friday for 2015, and we're ending it with another gem! Another cassette picked up on a whim, Horrible Sounds of Halloween is a short blast of vintage, novelty Halloween greatness. Based on the blandness of the label, I assume this was released some time in the mid 80s. An unassuming orange label on both sides with a generic font. I know this thing was mass-produced on the cheap!!

But the greatness of this cassette lies not in the label, but in the audio. More low quality "Halloween" spook sounds with a quickening heartbeat underlying the entire 15 minute track (the audio is repeated on the second side, which is kind of a letdown...). And although the quality leaves much to be desired, there are honestly some cool, creepy sound effects scattered throughout. For a purchase on a whim, I'm really happy with this cassette!! Happy Halloween, everyone!!

The FINAL Halloween Weather Forecast Update:





It looks like we may be able to pull this off!! As long as those showers hold off, we should be able to get through trick-or-treat AND have everything put away before the rain comes. Keeping those fingers crossed for one more day!!!

Just a quick question, is this not the same upload as the Spooky Sounds tape? The version of Horrible Sounds of Halloween I'm looking for sounds like this. https://soundcloud.com/nostalgiakidd/funworldtm-thriller-chiller-1988 (Thriller/Chiller here I believe is a bootleg of the original Horrible Sounds of Halloween) It's basically the same as "Chamber of Horrors (1988)" but with out the cheesy jazz music or the "happy halloweeeeeeen" voice...or thriller.

Anonymous, this version is different than the HSOH link that you posted. With so many of these novelty cassettes being released, rereleased and then rereleased again with the same names and different tracks, who knows how many different versions there are. I actually posted a "Chamber of Horrors" cassette from the 90s with a completely different audio track from the 1988 original!
