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.

My Bloody Valentine - Paul Zaza
Re-up new download link

Here is one of my favorite themes to a horror movie, it's really quite good I must say. It has the musical style perfectly fits the movie and the setting of the movie, this small working class town with miners as it's inhabitants. I think I just listened to it 15 times in a row while I typed up this post.

The film however isn't one of my favorites. It's not awful, but it's just not classic or even all that good to me. I think I was expecting more from it. I may need to give it a few more viewings. I originally came across this track on the now defunct "Please-Release" soundtrack blog. So credit goes to that guy for posting this back then. Enjoy!

The Thing - Ennio Morricone
Full Score/Soundtrack

Today I have the now out-of-print "The Thing" score/soundtrack by composer Ennio Morricone. The thing is one of my all time favorite movies, and if you catch me on the right day I may just say it's my absolute favorite movie. The film has been talked about to death, so there isn't anything new I can provide you on that front. The music however is a major element to the film to help set the mood and it doesn't disappoint! Morricone's score captures that feeling of isolation and fear that is essential to this film. If you are a big fan of "The Thing" I highly suggest getting this added to your music collection.

Cruel Intentions - Edward Shearmur
(Full Score)

Here is the complete full score to the 1999 teen flick "Cruel Intentions". The score was composed and performed by Edward Shearmur. I happened to discover this a couple of years ago when I was trying to hunt down any possibility of a score soundtrack in existence for this. Quite honestly I do not know where this came from, who posted it online or when I originally found it but, I'm for ever grateful to them. This is one of my favorite scores for one of my favorite guilty pleasure films. I can't quite say why I like it. Most stuff like this I wouldn't even give 10 min attention. The music captures the feeling of the film so well, at times diabolical and sneaky. Other times very touching and emotional. The full score is total of 23 tracks. I normally will embed a video for the trailer for the film, but in this case I wanted to show a scene that has the score heavily used in it. It's some great stuff.

As I said this is one of my favorite flicks. In my little world it's a cult classic. The first couple times I saw it I really didn't care for it at all, but then the third time was the charm. I really started liking the movie for it's demented charm. Well enough of my rambling enjoy the score. Also I don't normally ask, but let me know if any of you have been hunting for this score.
