Blood Feast
Original Score


Composer: Klaus Pfreundner
Label: ScreamWorks Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 28 July 2017

ScreamWorks Records releases the soundtrack to Blood Feast, scored by German composer Klaus Pfreundner. An official remake of the 1963 horror by Herschell Gordon Lewis, the 2016 movie is co-written and directed by Marcel Waltz. The film tells the story of Fuad Ramses, an American entrepreneur who moves to France with his family in order to open an American diner. With business going slowly, Ramses also works night shifts in a museum of ancient Egyptian culture. Tortured by vision from the Goddess Ishtar, Fuad starts to spice up his meals with unlikely ingredients...

Klaus Pfreundner throws everything at this score - and you have to admire his diversity. It kicks off with 'The Beast (Intro)', which is truly one of the most hauntingly bleak tracks I've heard in a long time. The use of electronically manipulated screams makes for an unsettling and unpleasant listening experience - which was exactly the intention. So, hats off to him for instantly giving me weeks of nightmares.

The album contains 11 tracks (31 min, 31 sec), four of these are songs by Chilli Con Curtis and Nici Roxx, and another is a reworking of 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' (1875 - Edvard Grieg)

This album's most interesting track, for me, was 'Sweet Bloody Paris', which had a ring of Nathan McCree's music for the first Tomb Raider game (1996). While I doubt I'll play the album again, I have saved 'Sweet Bloody Paris' to a playlist.

As horror scores come, this is above average for the genre.
