  1. Congrats on another great Podcast with an excellent topic! You guys certainly discussed a very wide topic of titles! I have always felt that some of my favorite horror films would not have been nearly as good without the company of a powerful soundtrack. Here is my personal list of 10 choice films with truly exceptional scores: Planet of the Apes, Alien, Blade Runner, 2001 – A Space Odyssey, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Theatre of Blood, Hands of the Ripper, The Fearless Vampire Killers, Blood on Satan’s Claw.

    • Thanks for the praise, Todd! We really appreciate it!

      I am also a big fan of the Blade Runner score. I didn’t realize Hands of the Ripper had a score released?!?! Need to find that! Can’t have a Hammer score out there that is not in my collection!
