This could be a listener's worst nightmare--and that's a compliment! Who can resist a compilation that features some of the best moments in contemporary horror and "weird" movies from some of the most recognized film composers? Bernard Herrmann's shower suite (rendition by Elmer Bernstein) from Psycho, Pino Donaggio's "Drill of Death" from Body Double, and J. Peter Robinson's background for Wes Craven's New Nightmare are among the symphonic scream themes. John Carpenter's own music for his Escape from L.A., Halloween, and Vampires is versatile and atmospherically pleasing. David Cronenberg is represented twice and in two distinctively different styles, as Michael Kamen's creepy orchestra for The Dead Zone contrasts with Howard Shore's metallic and darkly romantic strains for Crash. A ghoul-ash of tradition and loony experimentation. --Joseph Lanza

"I love this CD. The renditions of each selection is top rate. Especially Psycho and For the Last Time We'll Play(from the movie Carrie).
I'm a home haunter. That means I haunt my yard for Halloween. I begin making my halloween projects in June and this CD is the perfect accompaniment to get me in the mood. Highly recommended!"
