One less overpriced Ebay collector's item:

The first title in our new line of re-issues is Ennio Morricone's superbly frightening score to one of the most lambasted movies of all time. This is a straight re-issue of the Warner LP (with the original artwork) that we are offering at the incredible low price of $12.98. Limited to 3000 copies. http://www.perseverancerecords.com

http://www.soundtrackinfo.com/OST/exorcist2heretic/

The latter 2 sites show a release date of December 6th.

The movie is one of my guilty pleasures and the Morricone soundtrack is incredible.

Thanks for the heads-up. :thumbsup:

Complete Die Hard and Scrooged announced by LaLa Land for next week. We should make a new soundtrack thread...

Superbly frightening ?

More like one of the most laughable and dated scores in existence. The track "Magic and Ecstacy" was supposed to be creepy and unsettling but I challenge anyone to listen to it and not laugh. Morricone is indeed la Maestro but even the all-time greats falter at times.

To each his own, but "dated"? Does this soundtrack contain the trappings of its time period? It may be wild & unhinged, but I'd argue Tubular Bells used in the original Exorcist is more obviously a product of the 70's.

The mythology-themed death metal band Nile sampled some of the tribal passages of this soundtrack on their early album Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka. Actually works rather well, IMO.

(Btw, Perseverance Records released a great soundtrack for 1978's Invasion of the Body Snatchers)

Simply put...you're wrong. :)

It's a superb soundtrack and fits very nicely into Morricone's discography.

Release was delayed a week or two, but this CD arrived a few days ago. The soundtrack's actually less wild than I thought it would be, sounds like a creepier variation on Morricone's spaghetti western orchestral/choral soundtracks. Great album!

Now, if only his score for The Thing would be reissued. I acquired the new CD of Alan Howarth's digital renditions (on BSX Records), but they ain't the same.
