    An elusive and highly sought-after effects cassette. (At least, as far as I know)
    Thanks for the attempts halloweiner, but the topstone one (the orange label cassette) isn't it either, nor is the blogspot link.

    Here's the alternate post I was referring to Chamber Of Horrors - alternate versions??

    for reference just in case my wording in the original post was bad.

    UPDATE/EDIT

    I JUST FOUND IT...but oh man is this weird.

    I came across a cassette for sale on ebay called "Scary Cassette Sons Affreux"...It IS in fact the tape I'm looking for, however it sounds as though it was recorded from a legitimate source, with a bad tape recorder...in other words the tape quality sucks, and it sounds like a bootleg copy of the "Real thing" which I imagine is in better quality. (Even the sounds in the Chamber of Horror Cassette are cleaner!) I've ripped the cassette in case anyone wants it, or has it in better quality.

    here's a picture of the one I just bought.

    And here's an audio stream of it. https://soundcloud.com/nostalgiakidd...e-sons-affreux

    Again, if ANYONE has any info on a higher quality version of either this tape, or one with the same sounds but a different name PLEASE let me know.

    And might I add, it's a little odd...when I translate the "Sons Affreux" in google translate, it translates to "Sounds Awful"...a little ironic eh?

    Jason at Scar Stuff has mentioned before that there was a lot of copying back n the day amongst these,Halloween recordings. I've also heard that a lot of music on iTunes sounds like it is a copy of a copy. Glad you found it though. This one is new to me.

    Just listened. Now that is awful...lol.

    I know right? And the sad part is, the version I uploaded is AFTER I put a bunch of cleanup VSTs and EQ over it. The actual tape sounds WORSE than the version I uploaded. It is still nice at least to have that soundtrack in some format though. Hopefully someday it'll be listenable...the search continues.

    Welp...I just found out a couple of weird details on this search.

    Apparently a LOT of the sounds from the cassette in question are sampled from the "Halloween Horrors" LP from the 70's, which is pretty crazy! Not all of them, but around 80 percent of them. I was happy to find that LP available for download, but I'm still on the search for the cassette...now after looking up more information and talking to a few people, I'm almost POSITIVE that the cassette in question is this one right here.

    Unfortunately, no one seems to be selling it atm. I really missed my chance, as it sold on ebay last year for 15 bucks.

    There was a post on that cassette on both the scary sounds blog, and the highbury cemetary blog, but I don't believe either
    of the pages link to a soundrip of that cassette specifically. There is the 90's version of the cassette which is just the
    updated release of "Chamber of Horrors" but I believe the original orange cassette I posted is the SFX itself in high quality.

    If anyone's got a copy of the cassette posted above, PLEASE let me know!

    it's basically the same tape as this

    same music/sound just different cassette names.

    That one's actually been uploaded to youtube as well as other places.

    It's just so crazy how such a widespread tape can be so...rare nowdays.
    Especially crazy at how elusive it can be even for internet standards.

    All I know is that as soon as someone posts a new copy, I'll buy it in a heartbeat, and upload it
    for the sake of everyone else lookin for it!
