Ok, So I was recently at an event with a friend of mine and the CEO of AwesomeBMovies.com, ‘Matthew Dowling,‘ and he told me something about horror movies that seemed to really keep him interested in the movies that we were watching at the time… That was the music!

Ok… So, I have always been a big fan of the music in movies… Rather it be the darker more chilling themes in the music from movies such as, ‘Halloween,’ or the softer more easily listened to… More uplifting music from soundtracks like the music from, ‘Titantic’… But for me I kind of thought that I was the only one… I mean when I look at the music that seems to have come out at one time or another… Well I like it… But a lot of people I thought kind of de-rided it… Boy was I wrong!

At this event, one of the things that people were doing was they were  buying vinyl records of some of the greatest soundtrack music from horror movies! And it reminded me of how much I loved horror movie soundtracks!

I say that, but something interesting also kind of came in to the mix with all of this! What happened was truly interesting to me!

You see, I happened to catch the vinyl sales while it was at an intermission for the movie… But when I got back for the second movie… Boy! I started seeing the movie with the music connected to it… I have to say… It reminded me of the first time I saw a movie and truly loved it! Besides the fact that the movie itself was dare-I-say-it… AWESOME! The musical score that accompanied it was nothing short of brilliant, and getting to have him and his band give a little concert before hand was an experience that I will never forget!

A genius composer who has done some great work bringing music to the horror movie genere, bringing some great music to these great Lucio Fulci films, 'Fabio Frizzi,' before getting started with the next part of his concert before the next movie!
