It's nearing Halloween so I thought I'd put up a horror themed soundtrack. It's for my all-time favorite zombie movie "Return of the Living Dead". I love the weird story, the mix of horror and comedy and a pretty interesting soundtrack to boot. If you haven't seen this make a date to watch it this Saturday. You won't be disappointed. For those who have seen it and love it here is the fantastic soundtrack, which includes a dvd rip of the intro credit music.

Well it's finally October and I was trying to think what to post next. Then while listening to iTunes toay I had a revelation to post three of my favorite "pop" tracks from the Friday the 13th film series. These tunes are all pretty catchy or memorable from the scenes they were playing during. If you don't have these and you are a Friday fan I urge you to download them. I have videos below the download link for each song, in the event you can't think of what songs I'm referring to here.
* Lion - "Love Is A Lie" (Part 4 Crispin Glover dancing)
* Pseudo Echo - "His Eyes" (Part 5 when the girl is dancing in her room)
* Alice Cooper - "The Man Behind the Mask" (Part 6)

This is my 4th re-up for this theme. It's a popular one. I now have an updated version with the voice over that has much better sound quality than the previous download.
* * *
This was a request from fellow reader R.J. Sayer. Sorry it took so long. As an added bonus for having to wait for these two tracks I have an additional song thrown in. Donald Rubinstein's theme he composed for the "Monsters" TV show that was a similar show to "Tales From the Darkside", but from what I recall had some added humor at times.
"Tales From the Darkside" was a fun horror themed TV show in the vein of Twilight Zone and Outer Limits. There were some great episodes. One I watched on youTube was called "Halloween Candy". It was a pretty good episode that captured the feel of the show.
I've read that George Romero originally wanted to do the show as "Creepshow", but Warner Bros. had the rights to that name or something like that so they ended up doing it as "Darkside"
I have both the instrumental and version with the voice over. It's a great creepy theme that gave me an uneasy feeling when I was little.
Man lives in the sunlit world
of what he believes to be reality.
But, there is, unseen by most, an underworld,
a place that is just as real,
but not as brightly lit.....
I know this isn't movie related, but its entertainment... video games that is. This is the album for the game Super Smash Bros. Melee for Gamecube. This album came out back around the time the game first came out and was part of a special gift to Nintedo Power subscribers. Enjoy, I'm sure the download won't last long, it's a pretty rare album to find.

Here is the now out of print soundtrack to the 80s total and utter rip-off of E.T. We'll there is not to much to say about this flick other than it's really bad. Damn near unwatchable. When I saw it at Big Lots for $4 I just had to have it. There is one scene that is particularly hilarious and bad that involves the kid in the wheelchair.
The soundtrack itself isn't all that bad, but low budget 80s movie standards. There are some really catchy tunes here that are worth a listen. Enjoy!

Here is the now out-of-print (OOP) soundtrack to the cult favorite "Orca: The Killer Whale". This movie was born out of the whole JAWS craze, but is actually much better than you might think. It's a bit of a Jaws rip-off, but it comes off pretty well with good acting, interesting story and above all a fantastic score by Ennio Morricone. I read somewhere that he said this was one of his personal favorite scores he's composed. I haven't seen the movie in probably 20 yrs now, so I can't remember details, but I do remember enjoying it quite a bit.

Sorry I've been out of the scene for a bit. This year is just crazy busy and the weeks fly by. Today I have the Basil Poledouris soundtrack to the 80s action "classic" Conan the Barbarian. I haven't seen this movie in nearly 20 years, but the soundtrack is pretty good. My favorite track is "Anvil of Crom" it's such a great tune. I can listen to that on loop about 10 times in a row every time it comes on. I have to admit I miss the days when movie posters had that painting style as you'll see on the soundtrack cover to the right.

I recently watched "Eyes Wide Shut" and I'm just loving this movie right now. I heard bad reviews over the years and really never looked into the movie until a few months back when my wife started watching it and said it was pretty good. We finally got around to watching the whole thing and it's so strange and mysterious that it really captured my imagination. The score has songs from a varied number of artists, but all very haunting and weird for the most part. My favorite two tracks are "Masked Ball" and "Migration". If you like this flick check this soundtrack out.

The rest of the soundtrack is 80s pop type stuff and if you are a fan of the movie you'll definitely dig them.
"Look Scotty, I know what you're going through. Couple years back, a kid came to me much the same way you're coming to me now, saying the same thing that you're saying. He wanted to drop off the team. His mother was a widow, all crippled up. She was scrubbing floors. She had this pin in her hip. So he wanted to drop basketball and get a job. Now these were poor people, these were hungry people with real problems. Understand what I'm saying?"

Today I have the score to the controversial film "White Dog". The music was composed by Ennio Morricone, who is very well known in the soundtrack world. He has scored some classic flicks over the years. This score is really one of my favorites lately. I never heard of the movie until a few months ago and was sadden to find out at the time it was unavailable in any format, but then a few months later it finally was relased by the Criterion Collection. Just strange luck on my part. The movie is definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it yet. It was based on true events, which makes it all the more chilling and sad. If you are wondering how the music sounds check out the trailer below. That features a cue from the film. Enjoy!

Here is the full soundtrack by David Newman for the 1988 cult classic Heathers. This is one of my top 80s films, and probably one of my favorite movies of all time. It's teen-comedy sort of, but more of a black comedy with a darker edge than the stuff John Hughes was putting out in that era. Stars included Christian Slater and Winnoa Ryder playing the central characters in the film. The score is pretty enjoyable to me and there is a lot of nostalgia when listening to it. This soundtrack also includes the "Teenage Suicide (don't do it) by Big Fun.

I plan to have something else up on here later this evening. Now that the holidays are over I can get back to posting on a semi-regular basis.
