Alessandro Alessandroni - Original Soundtrack Music for the Movies: Suor Omicidi · Lo Strangolatore di Vienna · Lady Frankenstein (1999)

Three horror soundtracks from Italian composer Alessandro Alessandroni. The comp was released in 1999, but Lo Strangolatore di Vienna and Lady Frankenstein both came out in '71, and Suor Omicidi in '79; as far as I can tell, none of them have ever been issued on their own. Ghostly choral arrangements, grainy synths, cinematic string pieces, creepy jazz-inflected psychedelia, and more that will definitely scratch your hallucinatory, gore-loving, 70s-Italo-horror itch. I've never seen Lo Strangolatore di Vienna (and the soundtrack's easily the weakest of the three) but the other two I can wholeheartedly recommend.

The track listing's pretty perfunctory and boring, so find it here if you like.

  1. Oddly enough this has been on my playlist over the last week. A great introduction into Alessandro's horror scores.
