I finally took the plunge and picked up The Beyond. My only experience with Frizzi's work was Zombie, which I didn't find too appealing. It lacked the energy and brightness that made Goblin's Dawn of the Dead so unusual. But wow! This is a great album! Wonderful fusion of Goblin and Morricone. Also, the vocoder-like effects remind me of Phantasm.

I know it's a long shot, but are there any fans here who can recommend similar albums from Frizzi? Thanks-

Yeah! City of the Living Dead is a great score!

Yay! The Beyond is ace. I like the film too. Especially the ending. I used to watch that over and over just for the music. I quite liked Frizzi's Zombie, especially the opening.

Yeah, I was thinking of giving Zombie another try. I think I was 14 when I saw it. It was just too damned bleak and grim (both film and score). But I felt that way about a lot of Morricone's work back then and my appreciation has matured greatly. I'll be sure to rent The Beyond as well. I've heard great things about it.

I thought the score worked well in the film. The film is decent with two good strong leads, and some gory set-pieces. And a bit mad, obviously.

One of the best (and worst) days in recent memory for me was discovering the "Moviegrooves" website.

Best, because the site has a zillion CDs (well, about 1000) of incredibly obscure and cool film scores, library music, and just plain unclassifiable stuff -- and has sound clips for everything.

Worst, because... well, since discovering the site, my productivity on my home computer has been shot to hell, 'cause I can't stop browsing Moviegrooves and listening to all their stuff. :-)

I really like Frizzi's The Beyond. It has heart!

Gotta love that cover with the rising sludge-corpse.

Another Rosenthal / Rosenman situation?
Will Frizzie be confused with Frizell?

Only for me, right wink

Cool. So I finally saw The Beyond. It was terrific! Man that ending has staying power! To see the visuals the music accompanies was a real treat. (I also got to see where the cover for the old Fangoria produced "Deep Red" book came from). Iconic gore!

I also watched Zombie and City of the Living Dead, and instantly bought both scores as well. It was nice seeing Zombie cleaned up on DVD...it struck me as a lot more slick and less dreary than I remember from that shitty pan and scan VHS.

I love that early 80's prog. horror sound. I also got Manhattan baby, which is another great score. Anyway, just wanted to heap a little more praise on Frizzi. He really had his art together. Goblin might be dead, but i can still discover their imitators! Viva Frizzi!
