Walter Rizzati - Quella Villa Accanto Al Cimitero (The House by the Cemetery) OST (1981)


The other day, I read a review of City of the Living Dead on the Final Girl blog, wherein the author talks about how she tends to give Italian horror movies a pass when it comes to things like plot and whether or not they make any sense. And it occurred to me that I do the same thing, and though there are a number of factors at play, it must have at least a little to do with the fact that the films of Fulci and Argento are often accompanied by some of the greatest soundtracks in the history of horror.

Case in point: The House by the Cemetery. This movie makes absolutely no fucking sense, but there are some awesomely gruesome deaths, genuinely frightening supernatural occurrences, an ample portion of unintentional humor, and a mournful, atmospheric, piano- and synth-heavy soundtrack courtesy of Walter Rizzati. Ergo, it's dope as fuck.
