Product Description

Music Composed and Conducted by Richard Band

From the foreword by director Stuart Gordon: 

"As Richard and I are both admirers of the classic film scores of composer Bernard Herrmann, I suggested that he might try limiting the instrumentation for CASTLE FREAK to stringed instruments, as Herrmann had done so effectively for Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO. Richard took that idea and ran with it, creating a magnificent score that seems as if it is being played on the tautly stretched nerves of the terrified listeners themselves.

At times the music has a classical feel that seems perfect for the ancient stone walls of the thirteenth century castle. But like the title character, Band’s score can instantly transform into something fierce, primitive and out of control with screeching crescendos and crashing percussion as the strings are violently struck with mallets. The title theme, played by a string quartet, is in my opinion as disturbingly beautiful as Saint-Saens’ DANSE MACABRE."

Limited Edition of 1000 Units.
