Tobe Hooper pulled a John Carpenter here, composing the score for his own film with his pal Wayne Bell. Sonically, the disc is similar to the "Phantasm" soundtrack in a lot of ways, full of farty analog synth and weird buzzing noises. And as an added bonus for anyone in a metal band, much of the macabre dialogue and tortured screams from the film are left intact on the soundtrack, providing much awesome sampling material. Also, as a bonus bonus, you also get the opening soliloquy, performed by none other than John Larroquette (y'know, Dan Fielding from "Night Court"?). Unfortunately, the crappy "Fool For A Blonde" song by Roger Bartlett from the beginning of the flick is here, too, because I'm a completist. Sorry.
