This is one of my favorite scores. Bellon is known most for Highlander, but his work here is outstanding. The music is far better than the film it is for. I was very disappointed with the Blu-ray ‘isolated track’ channel as it is an audio interview with Bellon, then the iTunes release of the score.. which is missing the climactic and beautiful end cue. Is anyone here familiar with Bellon or this score? I hope it gets another treatment soon.. I really want the complete score and certainly prefer the quality of a physical CD compared to iTunes.

It's a great, varied and incredibly fun orchestral horror score with a gorgeous neo-baroque love theme of special note. I was thrilled a few years back to discover it had been quietly released on iTunes. I must admit both Waxworks films, though objectively dumb, are a total blast and hugely entertaining. My senior year of college I saw a 35mm print of the first one with a packed house and it was just so much fun. A number of other films from this director also have fantastic scores that are way more ambitious and thematic than the films deserve - see Mark Mckenzie's WARLOCK score and Richard Stone's VAMPIRE: SUNDOWN IN RETREAT.

In general I need to get better-acquainted with Roger Bellon's music.

Check it out people!
