I Know this has probably been done, But I couldn't seem to find it in an actual by the numbers poll.
Again, I have to say CARRIE, but I also love Halloween, Friday the 13th, Deep Red, Cannibal Holocaust, Psycho, and the Beyond. They are also up there in my favorites. But you forgot Zombie! That's another of my favorites.
I think Pino Donaggio is a master of music and I love anything he does, particularly Carrie and Dressed To Kill. The music, IMO, is one of the many things that make a movie what it is, so in those situations it makes the film all the more enjoyable. I love how the score to Carrie is at first sad and sympathic, but then at other times scary. Definitely my all-time favorite score and I even own the soundtrack so I can listen to it all I want (the only bad thing is on the CD they edited some of the music and changed it from the way it was in the movie, but you'll hardly notice unless you are a big fan. )
from this list, Halloween
off the list, I have to give a mention to Poltergeist and The Others. the soundtracks to both of these movies were stirring and very melodic and added much depth and emotion to the movies in which they played.
The Exorcist of course followed by Carrie and Phantasm in a tie for second.
Choosing 'other' is boring so I voted for Friday the 13th. Part 3 specifically. Gotta love that throbbing techno beat.
Halloween's theme is classic...it really sets the tone. I love Tubular Bells in The Exorcist, but since that one wasn't written specifically for the movie, I don't really count it.
From the list I picked HALLOWEEN, but my own personal favorite is PHANTASM.
CREEPSHOW for "honorable mention"
While CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST is definitally in my top 5, I chose Other to go with the BUIO OMEGA theme! Simply amazing and Goblins best work.
I voted for Cannibal Holocaust.
I've always found it creepy and weird.
Halloween simply cause its so effective to create the atmospehere in the movie...
Dawn Of The Dead is my favorite. But Halloween theme have been a huge part of the movie.
I voted "Other" because I like the score to Zombie.
Of the stuff on the list, for years I thought nothing could top Halloween, until I heard Suspiria's. Carpenter was definitely inspired by Argento in more ways than one.
But Zombie gets my vote...the creepy "main" theme, which I don't like playing in a darkened room, plus the lush minor chords played by the synthesizer whenever Dr. Menard is agonizing over whether to shoot the next zombie in the head. Those chords contain so much pathos, it's like each one is more agonized than the last.
And a shout out for the greatest disco song of all time, "Do It To Me Once More," from House on the Edge of the Park. :banana:
Do you happen to have an MP3 of the actual disco song?
I second that. Great song!
I wish...I'd be dancin'!
