Friday The 13th goes to an early 80s disco, 1982 to be precise. Love that synth bass.
Remember when Howard Shore was awesome? Particularly when he was scoring for Cronenberg.
Ambient to noisy electronic delirium and back again.
Francois De Roubaix was a French film composer. I think his mind was quite free of constraints when it came to making music. You can hear it all here in just 3 minutes. He covers a lot of ground but it doesn't sound forced or shoehorned, it's just wonderful. As far as I can tell only two tunes from the soundtrack to the 1971 Belgian film Daughters of Darkness were ever issued. Les Dunes d'Ostende was on one side of a 7" released by French label Barclay.
Keeping with the horror theme, De Roubaix died in his mid 30s in an accident whilst diving off The Canary Islands in 1975. He is pictured on the cover of one of his compilations in scuba diving gear which I thought was rather macabre.
HORROR MOVIE PODCAST - FACULTY OF HORROR
If you can get past how impressed this duo are about their scholastic achievements and are a horror movie fan this could be a podcast for you. The hosts Andrea Subissati and Alexandra West take an analytical look at one or two films per episode which are thematically linked. They've covered ye olde classics like Night Of The Hunter, Witchfinder General, Black Christmas, The Exorcist, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Shivers, Halloween etc. Plenty of 80s and 90s movies like The Shining, Sleepaway Camp, Friday The 13th, Fright Night, Gremlins, Lost Boys, The Crucible, The Crow & The Cube have been featured. Films of the new Millennium are not shied away from either, like they are in many other casts of pod. Wolf Creek, The Loved Ones, Elle, The Descent, Trick'rTreat, Calvaire, Martyrs, The Babadook, Cabin In The Woods & Drag Me To Hell have all been picked apart by the faculty. Alexandra West wrote the book Films Of New French Extremity and has a new book due soon about 90s teen horror.
I've never seen this movie but it's apparently a cross between Carnival Of Souls and Messiah Of Evil. Which sounds like it would be right up my street. The full version on youtube is unwatchable but it was issued by Arrow on dvd & blu-ray last year though. Looking forward to tracking it down.
