Audiodrome#4: The Wicker Man
Head over to Paracinema.net to check out the latest instalment of Audiodrome: Music in Film. This month I’ve been listening to Paul Giovanni’s inspired score for Robin Hardy’s folk-horror masterpiece, The Wicker Man. Heavily informed by paganism and indigenous music, Giovanni’s meticulously researched soundtrack combines adaptations of traditional folk pieces, poems and authentic-sounding original compositions.
Why not pick up the latest issue of Paracinema while you’re there? Amongst its lurid delights are articles such as Panic in Detroit: RoboCop and Reagan’s America by Andreas Stoehr; Blood on the Rubber Chicken: Horror Parodies of the Early ’80s by Mike White; and Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures from Hell by Todd Garbarini. All great stuff, written by hardcore fans of genre films for hardcore fans of genre films.
