BRITISH, both the actress and the director. Director throughout the 70's into the 80's made a string of low budget horror efforts that was often gritty, effects a bit ahead of it's time in the gore department. One had MICHAEL GOUGH in it, but that was before the all star horror film he made in the 80's.

I am a Canadian composer who has scored about a dozen and a half films from the 70' and 80's. A few were genre,one a hip 70's version of a classic horror story. Another, a remake of a classic Science Fiction movie which was nearly dislike by everyone who ever talked about it. WHO AM I?

Could that be Paul Hoffert? (THE SHAPE OF) THINGS TO COME would be the rubbishy remake of the classic SF. THE GROUNDSTAR CONSPIRACY might be the other genre one, but I didn't know it was a version of a classic horror story...

Anyway, even if I'm wrong and it ISN'T Paul Hoffert, I have to say that I do think his music and career are absolutely fascinating!

TO GRAHAM-If you are still awake, I guess it is about one a clock in the morning in your part of the woods- You are correct it's PAUL HOFFERT, the other genre film was FRANKENSTEIN ON CAMPUS with ROBIN[BATMAN] WARD.

I am a composer who did films from the 30's till the late 60's. In the 40's I wrote music for a few genre pics, In the 50's I did a few more. Near the end of my career I did a genre film with PATRICK O NEAL, and my music was also used for a infamous genre cheapie. Who am I?

Did they all write scores for Stephen King film adaptations?

What about this one - The very great jazz arranger and composer (splendid in films and TV too) Oliver Nelson arranged commercially-released vocal versions of a theme from one of Gerald Fried's early horror scores. For 1 point, the film please. And for an additional point, the title which the song was given.
