Bram Stoker's Dracula Soundtrack Review[Musical Monday]
Greetings everyone!!! So, we got an announcement for you, we at the Gruesome Gazette are proud to announce a new column, where we will review and discuss horror movie soundtracks and scores. There is just so many great ones out there, and every classic horror movie would not be complete without the music. Being that we are both a fan of horror movies and music, this would be the perfect column to have. So it will be on Mondays for now, unless something or someone else gets added on. It will be Tha Thrilla and Mike Cleopatra swapping every other Monday. I could see this getting a lot of hype and an audience, so let's see how this goes.
So we shall start off with the original soundtrack to Bram Stoker's Dracula. This is straight up such a majestic soundtrack composed by Wojchech Kilar. This orchestral soundtrack will either pump you up, or even move you to tears with it's more romantic pieces. It is such a perfect accompaniment to such an outstanding movie. I still get goosebumps just listening to it to this day. Plus it really brings to mind that gothic vampiric vibe as well, making you think of dark castles with rivers of blood flowing through.
Some of the standout tracks to me are "The Storm", "Vampire Hunters", and "Love Eternal". Especially "The Storm" as that track features such a pounding relentless beat accompanied by chanting, oh it is just fantastic. And there was a song on the soundtrack made exclusively for the movie but was only included in the end credits called "Lovesong for a Vampire" by Annie Lennox. In danger of being called a softie, but that song is such a moving piece, even though you can see why it really was left just for the end credits as it differs from the orchestral pieces
So if you seen Bram Stoker's Dracula, or just like orchestral horror movie soundtracks, I definitely recommend giving this a listen, as I am sure you will fall in love with it just as I did.
Till next time, stay scared -Tha Thrilla-
