AMITYVILLE HORROR (EXPANDED) (CD)
Composed by: Lalo Schifrin

CLASSIC HORROR RE-RECORED BY THE COMPOSER.

There are few passages that one could characterize as gentle, with the exception of the film's love theme for James Brolin and Margot Kidder (called "The Window"), a touching respite from the dark and dramtic music that dominates the piece.

Yet "The Amityville Horror" could never have been the hit that it was without Schifrin's inventive, unnerving music -- music that not only frightened moviegoers but, even more significantly, managed to convince them that the events being depicted were real.

Based on a bestselling, allegedly nonfiction book about haunted goings-on in a Long Island house ("The Amityville Horror Conspiracy"), this rather cheesy horror movie is more silly than unsettling. James Brolin and Margot Kidder star as newlyweds who move into the empty home and are gradually affected by the legacy of a murder committed on the premises. Rod Steiger is a priest who can tell what's up and gets dispatched in a rather ugly way. Director Stuart Rosenberg can't lift the action above a certain level of tawdriness, and the audience ends up watching the horror from a distance instead of feeling involved. In the wake of "The Exorcist," this 1979 spooker seemed like a no-brainer knockoff--and still does.
