Stuart Gordon's 1985 classic "Re-Animator" is one of my all-time favorite gore flicks, a super-solid piece of sick insanity adapted from a story by one of the greatest writers ever, Mr. Howard Phillips Lovecraft. One of the best parts, though, is the jaunty, creepy score by Richard Band (also responsible for the sweet jams heard in such films as "From Beyond" and "Troll" (see previous post)). The main theme from the first "Re-Animator", in particular, is a real gem, a quirky, minor-key ditty that gets stuck in my head at least once or twice a week.
If you dig horror soundtracks at all, you should really check this (and anything else by Richard Band) out. Oh, and if you've seen "Re-Animator" but NOT "Bride of Re-Animator" you should probably look into that, too. You really won't be disappointed.
