Love it!

For my taste, this is one of the most haunting horror scores ever. I know that it is inspired by SchifrinĀ“s "The Amityville Horror" - but I prefer GoldenthalĀ“s score by miles.

Why? Because once again a composer proves that a terrific main theme is the backbone of any great score. And a horror score that is only using scare tactics can never be as effective as a score that delves deeply into the feelings of the characters so that we can understand them and care for them before we get scared that something might happen to them.

The expansion and remastering is done perfectly, as on every La-La-Land-release.
