Silver Bullet - Jay Chattaway
(Full score/soundtrack)

Here is the full soundtrack by Jay Chattaway for the 1985 film Silver Bullet. This is one of best Stephen King movie adaptations. It's based on the book "Cycle of the Werewolf". The movie sticks to the book pretty well, with a few changes here and there that I'm willing to accept, I mean there have been so many movies based on King stories that were completely unwatchable that a few changes here and there I can live with.

That being said it's one of my favorite werewolf flicks, my only gripe is that I wish the werewolf looked a little more "Howling" and less Teddy Bear like. Thankfully the director kept the werewolf hidden most of the time which always leaves the monster up to your imagination... and that's usually better than putting the monster out there in full light.
"I'm a little too old to be playing "Hardy Boys meet Reverend Werewolf"!"

I love this movie! The book was good too.

The Fiji Mermaid said...

Ladytink, thanks for stopping by. Yeah the book is a classic to me and the film was executed pretty well. It's one of my favorite werewolf films.

mBane said...

WOW.. Thank you for re-posting this.... BUT... I'm having a problem.. Is anyone else having trouble getting it ti download from z-Share?

The Fiji Mermaid said...

mBane, you are welcome. What type of issues are you having with downloading this. From what I can tell it's been downloaded about 160 times and your comment is the first I've heard that the download had an issue. I don't know how much I can trouble shoot the z-share stuff, but let me know what problem you have having.

mBane said...

Hello & thank you Miss Mermaid, I've never come across this problem before... What happens is, when it get's to the 'click here to start the download'.. I click it & then it returns to the first Zshare screen to start the download again... Plus, it takes that action as a download.. I know that i've tried over 50 times, to no avail. I am running a mac but like I said, I've never come across this problem & What makes it double strange is, the darkside download worked (thanks for that too)... I have a pretty large collection of soundtracks, If I was to list them & offer you the links, how'd would you feel about posting it on Megaupload or Yousendit?
either way, i'll work on that list. THANKS AGAIN

mbane, thanks for telling me what the problem is. I had a few other fellow readers alert me to a similar issue on other posts I had. I'm not sure exactly what is causing this, but what I"ll do is re-up it with a brand new link and see how that goes. I'll put a "RE-UP" message on the post and above the link letting you know it's been updated.

The Fiji Mermaid said...

mbane, Thanks for the list of soundtracks. I'll take a look through this later today.

mBane said...

Hello again, I don't wanna harass but any chance of that re up? Did you want any of those OST's listed?

The Fiji Mermaid said...

mBane, the Silver Bullet soundtrack has been re-upped. I'm using Megaupload this time.

Devious said...

Thank you for the re-up! This is my fav all-time movie and I just love the song 'Joy Ride' so much.

Horror Theatre said...

Hi there
PLEASE!!! is there a Rapidshare link to Cannibal Ferox / Zombie 2 OST ??? Can't use megaupload on my PC for some reason.
Thank you

The Fiji Mermaid said...

Horror Theater, I don't have that soundtrack/score. Sorry.

Greg Stuart Smith said...

Great score to a very fun and often scary film! Too bad it is lacking the young girl's older-self's narration! Wait, maybe that is a good thing...

This score makes me wanna go tearing around outside of town in a suped-up, fuel-injected wheelchair and let off firecrackers on a lonely bridge in the dead of night, preferably next to the woods where a werewolf is reputed to live! Oh, and during a full moon no less!

Me, as the fireworks explode in the air: "Yahoo! Yeah! Yeah! Alright! Yahoo! Yeah, that's a good one! Alright!" Then from the bushes: GRRRRRR! Oh, no! only one more roman candle left! Better make it count!!!

The Fiji Mermaid said...


Yeah it's a favorite score of mine. Chattaway did a good job with this one. Ha do you mean it's too bad the score is lacking the girl's voice over?

Ha ha ha! Every 4th of July this flick pops into my head. Fireworks and fighting werewolves, it's as American as apple pie.

Greg Stuart Smith said...

If I remember correctly, the story/movie is being narrated by the older sister Jane's adult-self, as if she's recounting a story from her childhood. It's just a very womanly sounding voice that they use.

I just looked it up, and the voice-actress was already 33 at the time they made the picture!

Anyway, I always thought this was sort of funny, because the film is set in current day 1984 or '85 (or at least I'm pretty sure it was), so that means the narrator is recounting the story from the future! That's strange, because you're not sure if that means you (as the viewer) are supposed to be from the future, too, or if she's just traveled back in time to tell us the story.

I just did a little research, and the movie is based on King's short novel CYCLE OF THE WEREWOLF. It looks like the book was set in the early 80's, too, and wasn't narrated by Jane, Marty's (the main characters) sister; in fact, in the graphic novel Marty's sister's name is Kate!

Anyway, the narration from the future thing always throws me for a loop. The V.O. was really sappy, too, and totally on unnecessary. I still enjoy the movie though, and am going to have to find a copy of the novel. Cheers! -- Greg

The Fiji Mermaid said...

Greg, damn I missed your comment the first time around. Sorry man!

I never thought about your voice over issue you mentioned before. For some reason it never was a question to me, but now that you mention it, you're right it doesn't make any sense. Actually now in 2011 watching it makes sense, but upon initial release I do wonder what the heck they were thinking.

Yes, "Cycle of the Werewolf" I've read that book a bunch of times, and this flick was a pretty decent adaptation. Although, as is always the case they take some license and liberties on the film version.

D.M.Cunningham said...

Don't know why it took me so long to find this link! Awesome awesome awesome. Thank you for posting this. I've been wanting this for some time. And the MANIAC score too! Happy dance.

The Fiji Mermaid said...

D.M. I'm glad I could help you out and get you connected to some great old scores. Yeah this one and Maniac are good. Chattaway has this "quiet, sinister" vibe going on both.
