"Dracula(Christopher Lee) was possibly the best film on Bram Stoker's blood-sucking icon(since Bela Lugosi in 1931)...this first Hammer Dracula film captured the ruthless tone of the title character in undead "Living Color", not to mention Professor Van Helsing(Peter Cushing) who was always around with garlic, wooden-steak and religious cross in hand...but folks, none of this would grab you, but for the horror chilling and macabre score by James Bernard...composed music for "THE HORROR OF DRACULA(1958)..."DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE"(1968)..."TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA"(1970), creepy with blends of gore, that will raise the hair on the back of your neck...if that's the case, composer James Bernard has driven his point home.Let's look at some hard-to-find scores that appear on this compilation ~ "THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF"(1960), features one of my favorite actors Oliver Reed, as a 19th Century man who realizes you need to check out your family-tree quick, before something happens that may leave a lasting impression, composer Benjamin Frankel paints a portrait of the beast that will soon appear---"WITCHFINDER GENERAL"(1968), can anyone master the evil that Vincent Price portrays, our composer Paul Ferris sets the tone with his score "Prelude/Romanza", the over six minute wonderful sampling will have you begging for more...the remaining scores on this compilation is top-notch and very collectible...a must have for all film score collectors who like to be scared to death. Silva Treasury presents Movie Themes better than any label around today...James Fitzpatrick(album producer)...Reynold da Silva(executive producer)...along with The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra(Nic Raine-conductor)...The Westminster Philharmonic Orchestra(Kenneth Alwyn-conductor)...The Philharmonia Orchestra(Neil Richardson-conductor)...recorded in DOLBY SURROUND, is a "film-score-buffs" collecting dream...but remember, when listening to this CD, do not...DO NOT TURN OUT THE LIGHTS!Total Time: 56:12 on 14 Tracks ~ Silva Screen Records STD-5013 ~ (1997)"
