A great little soundtrack – to one of the creepiest baby films ever! The score is one of the last from the legendary Bernard Herrmann
– and it's one that's got all the depth and majesty of his best work for Hitchcock – an amazing sense of tone and texture that's hardly what you'd expect to such a gory little thriller! Herrmann
was always one to bring his a-game to the studio, but he really knocks it out of the park with this one – using classic modes to hit some newly-creepy styles – in a way that's almost as if he's trying to show a whole younger generation of soundtrack artists that things can still be done best the old way. This reissue presents the music for the first time ever in its entirety – with amazing sound, and a very well-done booklet filled with notes and spooky photos. Titles include "Father & Child/Father Protects Child", "Raid On The School", "Frank Visits Basement", "It's Alive", "Charley's Dead", "The Big Search", and "Empty Fridge/Father Stalks Baby".
