House By The Cemetery

20130806-184745.jpg

My first Death Waltz Recording Company soundtrack reissue in awesome translucent red vinyl.

This was one of those movies that got to me. It wasn’t much different than Fulci’s ‘The Gates Of Hell’, ‘The Beyond’, or ‘Zombi’ gore-wise. But the simplicity of the story, mixed with Walter Rizzati’s subtle and haunting score made for an eerie and at times melancholy experience. My 12 year old self felt so anyways. Hell, my nearly 40 year old self thinks so, too.

I think even if you’re not an Italian horror film fan you could still appreciate Rizzati’s score. Fulci was a misogynistic turd. But this film and score stand out as a shining moment for him.

Arrivederci!

    1. I’d say River’s Edge was about as disturbing as any Italian horror film I’ve seen, maybe even more. Well, except for Fellini Satyricon. I still have nightmares.

      Feck has to be one of the most interesting characters Hopper ever played. Maybe even more so than Frank Booth.
