"Meridian" 1991 film score from master composer Pino Donaggio!

Hi everyone. Here is the music score for the Full Moon horror-fantasy film "Meridian" from 1991 by Pino Donaggio! That's the year I graduated from high school so I remember renting the flick that year or the next. Of course being from Full Moon, the film itself sucks. Yet, composer Pino Donaggio's beautiful film score is the superb aspect. Of course, he is the master of themes & melodies, chart topping pop hits, and imaginative & memorable film scores.

He's a superb singer, violinist, and composer. His use of an orchestra with synthesizers and eeire female harmonies are other reasons his scores stand out from other composers. "The Howling", "Tourist Trap" (2 of my favorite films), "Piranha", & a bunch of Brian DePalma film scores, etc. are all in his resume.

The tracks that I've highlighted in green in the track list are my favorite tracks .The other tracks, although just as awesome, have certain dramatic moments (it's a horror film of course) that pop up which can become jarringly loud and disrupt your listening flow. So you could make yourself a playlist of only those tracks I highlighted, or just make your own mix. Search for the hidden link to download the file and enjoy!

Happy FRIDAY THE 13TH! Stephen King's "THE MIST in 3-D Sound"! from 1993

Hi folks Jason here to say HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH! I can't wait to see the new FRIDAY THE 13TH remake coming out tomorrow with my friends! As my good bro Dave presently living in Michigan puts it, it kind of a mishmash of FRIDAY THE 13TH parts 1 -3. This makes it more fun, as it's not just a straight remake just as the HALLOWEEN remake had a different twist to it as well.
Now, yes, I just keep lagging a little longer than I mean to between posts. With all of the emails/comments and feedback, I know people want MORE. I'll give it to ya! Here we have a special treat from our ole pal Stephen King: THE MIST in 3-D Sound from 1993! My Dad bought this Simon & Schuster Audio CD edition back when it came out that year. I've been an avid Stephen King reader since I was a young kid, along with my older brother Mark and my Dad we love it all! So having read THE MIST when I was a kid, then listening to this SUPERB, full production audio play edition, it's been a huge thrill for the imagination long before the movie came to be. It really is in 3-D sound, fully loaded with masterful sound effects & superb acting, recorded in the "Kunstkopf Binaural Sound" technology with a "Neumann Fritz II"! Here is an editorial review excerpt from this 1993 edition:
"Product Description: A mysterious mist--alive with strange movements and unearthly sounds--creeps slowly into a small town, trapping the inhabitants from the rest of the world, in a chilling, full-cast dramatization of King's horrific story of fear and the unknown.
From the Publisher: Sound so visual you're literally engulfed by its bonechilling terror! Stephen King's sinister imagination and the miracle of 3-D sound transport you to a sleepy all-American town. It's a hot, lazy day, perfect for a cookout, until you see those strange dark clouds. Suddenly a violent storm sweeps across the lake and ends as abruptly and unexpectedly as it had begun. Then comes the mist...creeping slowly, inexorably into town, where it settles and waits, trapping you in the supermarket with dozens of others, cut off from your families and the world. The mist is alive, seething with unearthly sounds and movements. What unleashed this terror? Was it the Arrowhead Project---the top secret government operation that everyone has noticed but no one quite understands? And what happens when the provisions have run out and you're forced to make your escape, edging blindly through the dim light? The Mist has you in it grip, and this masterpiece of 3-D sound engineering surrounds you with horror so real that you'll be grabbing your own arm for reassurance. To one side---and whipping around your chair, a slither of tentacles. Swooping down upon you, a rush grotesque, prehistoric wings. In the impenetrable mist, hearing is seeing---and believing. And what you're about to hear, you'll never forget. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition."
Get ready for a creepy dive into horrorland, at home or on a road trip in your car!
