Waxwork Records wants you to come out and play with THE WARRIORS
Waxwork Records who recently re-released the brilliant TAXI DRIVER soundtrack, have another special treat for film geeks on the way: the original full score to Walter Hill’s 1979 cult classic THE WARRIORS.
THE WARRIORS centers on a tough street gang from Coney Island who are framed by rivals for the killing of Cyrus (Roger Hill) a chieftain trying to create a truce by bringing all the gangs in the city together. With nowhere to run and no place to hide, The Warriors find themselves under attack by the other gangs who assume they are guilty and want to take them out. It becomes a deadly game of survival as they try to make their way home without being offed or arrested.
