The movie is a terrific mix of horror and comedy, that as far as I'm concerned is the best vampire movie ever! I won't go on and on about this one because if you've gotten this far then you know exactly what the soundtrack has in store for you.

Today I have two tracks from the classic film "Night of the Creeps". The film was scored by Barry De Vorzon. I originally came across these when the score wasn't released and someone was able to pull the audio from the source film. The two tracks, one of them being heard when the students are getting ready for their dance. The other is a suite if sorts that has some suspense music and love theme mixed into one track. This score was never released until 2009. La-La Land Records was able to give it a release in time for Halloween last year. However that release was a limited edition to 2000 copies. If you can't get your hands on that, but want to hear some music from the film check out this download now.

I bought this soundtrack long ago on cassette along with Charles Bernstein's "A Nightmare on Elm Street" score. I can still remember that creepy feeling the songs gave me listening to them when I was little. Good times.

Today's post is the original soundtrack release of Halloween III: Season of the Witch. This is probably the most controversial film in the series as it has absolutely nothing to do with Michael Myers, but don't let that idea stop you from watching if you've never seen it. I love this flick and there is a large following of people that love it as well. It has Tom Atkins for god sakes I mean that's all that really needs to be said, but beyond that it has supernatural happenings, evil masks, doom to all the children and perhaps the greatest jingle of all time. The Silver Shamrock jingle that you hear over and over throughout the movie.
I would say this is the 2nd best film in the Halloween series. The first film being the best. However it's really hard to compare The Michael Meyers storyline to this film as they are completely different aside from the doom happening on Halloween that is.
Now if we are talking soundtracks, this is the best Halloween soundtrack hands down, it's absolutley awesome. The "Main Title" and "Chariots of Pumpkins" tracks are worth getting the soundtrack alone. This long out of print soundtrack has been re-released by Alan Howarth. It's been remastered and additional bonus tracks, something worth getting if you are an avid fan.

Today I have a treat in the spirit of Halloween and those of you that want to add to your halloween party background music as well as hard core Friday the 13th fans that have agonized on finding a score to "Jason Lives." I've created new album art for this one as the album art that was floating around out there for this soundtrack was pretty ugly and all around bad quality.
Open up your halloween big for this massive 58 track download. It contains all of the cues from the film that as far as I know was taken from an old DAT tape of the film or a supposed release that is long since out of print. As a bonus to the Harry Manfredini music you'll also get the Alice Cooper and Felony songs that appeared in the flick. This is quickly becoming my favorite Friday film. I watch them enough my favorites tend to change like the wind.
"Jason's not in his grave! Hawes is. Dig it up! You gotta dig it up! You gotta dig it up! "
