Label: House Of Analogue
Rated: *****
The saga of the Amityville movies started back in 1977 and is based on the book "The Amityville Horror" by Jay Anson, which was published in 1977. As stated by Wikipedia, the story of The Amityville Horror can be traced back to a real life murder case in Amityville in November 1974, when Ronald DeFeo, Jr. shot all six members of his family at 112 Ocean Avenue. In December 1975 George and Kathy Lutz and Kathy's three children moved into the house, but left after twenty-eight days, claiming to have been terrorized by paranormal phenomena produced by the house. Jay Anson's novel is said to be based on these events but has been the subject of much controversy. The latest chapter of the saga is titled "Amityville Legacy" and its directed by Dustin Ferguson. Its soundtrack has been composed and played by a guy well know for you CHAIN D.L.K. readers, because I'm talking about Aidan Casserly, already singer with Empire State Human, Kubo, Figaro, Garland Cult, etc. Available on digital format for House Of Analogue, Aidan's soundtrack brings in fiftween original tracks deeply influenced by dark electronic film scores of the 70’s and 80’s, and especially for films such as "Phantasm", "The Terminator" and "Halloween". We have a main tune which returns different times under many forms, as well as dark pop moments like "Who's there", where the atmosphere is apparently quiet but underneath there's a certain twisted tension going on. Aidan is able to mix really well tense atmopsheres and catchy melodies as well as using sounds that are fitting the aim of recreating the classic 70's, 80's atmospheres giving to them a modern feeling. I enjoyed that, even without watching the movie! Check it in the major digital retail stores.
