None. Unless I get in the mood. Halloween has no meaning to us Norwegians.

That is quite possibly the saddest thing I've ever heard. Do you have any month devoted to horror? A week even?

Dark Shadows (Robert Cobert)
House of Usher (Les Baxter)
Black Sunday (Les Baxter)
Blood and Black Lace (Carlo Rustichelli)
The Whip and the Body (Carlo Rustichelli)
Rosemary's Baby (Komeda)
Eye of the Devil (Gary McFarland)
White Angel, Black Angel (Piero Umiliani)
The Dunwich Horror (Les Baxter)
Death Walks at Midnight (Gianni Ferrio)
Suspiria (Goblin)
Salem's Lot (Harry Sukman)
and Morricone's Argento trilogy: Bird with the Crystal Plumage, Four Flies on Grey Velvet, Cat o' Nine Tails

He, he....no. But we have a small horror film festival out in the western countryside called Ramaskrik. To be fair, the occasional Halloween party has appeared even in Norway in later years -- an import from the US. I always shun it like the plague.

Nor do good movies like THE SAND PEBBLES.

Since the fifth film is on the horizon and there's no details for a UK release yet, I suspect PHANTASM is gonna get a lot of play to make up for it.

In October I play warm, "spooky" sorts of horror scores. Autumnal stuff. Big gothic things. Slashers and shrieking terrors I find generally work better in the summer.

No horror scores, strictly speaking, but some scores with scary elements, such as:

"Something Wicked This Way Comes" (Horner / Delerue)

Score from some seasons of "Buffy the Vamprie Slayer".

Stuff from "The X-Files" series. I'll save some of the "MillenniuM" stuff for the following cold months.

And I'd play Salem's Lot" if I had it.


To me, Horner's SWTWC is quintissential October music. And the opening voiceover dialogue from the film always comes to mind.

Great! You really seem to like it. Well, either that or your stint at the Actors Studio has really paid off.
