5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome soundtrack to a brilliant remake, 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maniac (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (MP3 Download)
I just got done watching this, and it more than surpassed my expectations.

I came on here straight away afterwards to see if a soundtrack was available as the synth patterns really resonated with me, so was pleasantly surprised to find it.

The score, to me, is highly reminiscent of the works of Georgio Moroder, Tangerine Dream, with a touch of ambient Daft Punk (Discovery) with a main theme that really sticks in your head. BOW BOW!!!

It captures the sleaziness of the kind of exploitation/grimy films that came out in the early 80s really well.

Best track, which I cannot stop listening to, is 'Haunted', which sounds like something out of Alan Parker's Midnight Express (also scored by Moroder).

Looks like with this, Drive, and erm Tron Legacy, that those cool, deeply atmospheric electro synth scores might be making a comeback (which worked so well in the horror genre with films like the original Nightmare on Elm Street), which is great news, as another reviewer stated, this is indeed great stuff for fans of old school horror and moody electro synthesizers!

BOW BOW!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific stuff, 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maniac (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (MP3 Download)
This is a great soundtrack to a very interesting horror/slasher movie remake.

I like the electronic soundtrack, its moody, imposing and very dark with great melody. The soundtrack album is short but it makes up for it with great phrasing between tracks and maintaining its theme without adding any tracks which could create a different atmosphere.

Buy it especially if John Carpenter has had an affect on your upbringing!

One of the best soundtracks I have ever heard. I love all of John Carpenter's 80's analog synth film scores and this is right up there with them. What this adds to the mix is a modern hypnotic feel to the tracks that really makes this work as a stand alone piece on its own. I ended up buying this on vinyl as well!
