Looking for a bit of help folks.....There is supposedly a 18 track promo version of Trevor Rabin's score floating about somewhere. I've only ever found a 15 track 'unmentionable' abomination that mostly wasn't even the music from the film. Can anyone confirm they've seen of heard this proper promo version. As a fan of horror scores I really loved this one and thought it was a pretty great departure from Trevor Rabin's usual style. Always thought it would sneak out from some label someday (LaLaLand ?) but so far no joy.Any help folks?
I never knew there was any version of it on the net. What's weird is that there are like two versions of this film. Exorcist: The Beginning and Dominion: Prequel To The Exorcist. I think everything is the same except for the director.
Was any score, promo or otherwise, ever released for Exorcist III? I can't find any information but more knowledgable heads here may know more.
Sadly no. What does pops up from time to time on ebay is a rip from the dvd channels (which has a lot of sfx) and runs very shortly.
I wish some label would do a release of the score Barry Devorzon did for "Exorcist III" combined with the other William Peter Blatty movie Devorzon scored, "The Ninth Configuration". Blatty has stated that the Exorcist - Ninth Configuration - Exorcist III form a trilogy.
Has anyone ever noticed the similarity between Rabin's score and Carl Stalling's WACKIKI WABBIT (1943)? What is supposed to be the ferocious tribal rythym in that movie sounds just like WACKIKI WABBIT's jungle dance. I think it's a coincidence. I don't think it was 'stolen' because why would you even be looking at that for inspiration. But if you're familiar with that cartoon, any tension that Harlin was able to ratchet out of the script was immediately dissipated by the memory of the frenzied, jungle gyrations that the hula-skirt wearing rabbit uses to distract the ravenous, ship-wrecked men.
Just thought i'd bump this in the vague hope of any chance of new info on a release. I know everyone wants their own choices out there but the fact that this score is kinda for TWO films should double its chances, yeah?....Yes...i know...i'm really stretching here! LaLaLand...any hope?
Just wanted to bump this in the vague hope that some Label will take heart and get this great wee horror score out. With all the low key horror synth drones that comes out this one really had a great atmosphere and a lot going with the mix of modern, atmosphere and tribal rhythms. Surely there's a chance someone might take a chance on releasing this? Pretty please?!
I have to admit I like the "Bruckheimer-Rabin" better.
I think if folk heard this they'd be quite surprised.Its not his usual stuff and the way he mixes the tribal elements with rhythms, traditional orchestra and choir really works. Its not quite as great as Morricone's approach in Exorcist 2 but it's a real cut above a lot of the more usual forgettable horror stuff.
Considering two of his best scores are still waiting to be released in any form (Remember the Titans, Jack Frost) he is obviously not priority for any label. Also you have to realize that most of his scores were done for Disney and various smaller companies owned by Disney, which is still licensing their stuff to Intrada ONLY. So Intrada is probably your only chance at least for now...
not sure if that's the case here too, as I could hardly care less about that "movie".
