John Barry's Somewhere In Time comes immediately to mind, as well as Ron Grainer's Omega Man.

R.I.P., Richard. frown

Does JAWS 3-D count?

I would say Hans Salter's THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN. That ending cue alone is incredible.

Agree on "The Omega Man".

Also like Jerry Goldsmith's weird score for the "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" segment of "Twilight Zone: The Movie".

Matheson, interviewed in Twilight Zone Magazine about "Nightmare At 20,000 Feet", called Goldsmith's score "terrific". I wholly agree, but still I'd have to name Delerue's "The Doll" as my favorite score for a Matheson-written production.

HA!

In all seriousness, this is a GREAT score - Big, thematic, with a gorgeous end title from back in the day when horror films still had those. I can even forgive the blatant Stravinsky cops that pop up now and again...

How about Billy Goldberg's DUEL? That's always been a stinking, original and unusual work that fit its film perfectly.

Damn, forgot about Goldsmith's "Nightmare At 20,000 Feet" from Twilight Zone: The Movie and Delerue's "The Doll" from Amazing Stories...great choices.

Goldsmith did not really score "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" - it was a case of the editors using cues from other Goldsmith scores for the series.

I vote for Goldsmith's score for "The Invaders" episode of TZ.

I think they mean TWILIGHT ZONE THE MOVIE 1983, Bill.

I wouldn't call it the best, but I'd sure like to hear it released on CD, the Delia Derbyshire/Brian Hodgson score to THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE.

My favorite 5:

  • Nathan Van Cleave's "A World of Difference" from THE TWILIGHT ZONE
  • NIGHT OF THE EAGLE (BURN, WITCH, BURN!) by William Alwyn
  • THE LAST MAN ON EARTH by Paul Sawtell & Bert Shefter
  • FANATIC (DIE! DIE! MY DARLING) by Wilfred Josephs
  • THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES by Stanley Myers

    Best TV score from a novel/original screenplay by Matheson :

    Bernard Herrmann's LITTLE GIRL LOST and Fred Steiner's MUTE which is also an outstanding episode featuring a stunning Ann Jillian.

    Win Butler, Régine Chassagne & Owen Pallett 's THE BOX


    Best movie score from a movie having a screenplay by Matheson not based on a novel of his own :

    Les Baxter's MASTER OF THE WORLD
