This is....interesting. I had this years ago, but before I had heard The Amityville Horror. Take a wild guess what happened after I heard Amityville's Main Title.

Same thing when I heard Bates '300'?

I've had the Varese CD for ages, but rarely listen to it. It just creeps me out too much.

Great news, a score I got very early on and have always enjoyed. I found the movie on vhs in a flea market (looking for anything Stephen King) and the movie creeped me out tons. The Zelda character remains one of the most disturbing images ever and the demise of Fred Gwynne one of the most terrifying sequences ever! Goldenthal's strings are so maniacally evil during those moments it hasn't lost any of its impact. The lovely waltz for the family, the mysterious and haunting music for the trip to the micmac burial ground and the exciting suspense music for Rachel's trip home, aside from the scary stuff there are so many great ideas and sounds that really elevate Pet Sematary to a classic horror movie; I've since upgraded my vhs to dvd and have yet to get the blu-ray but look forward to it as it's a movie that holds up very well. I'm glad I get to upgrade the Varese, when I asked Goldenthal about it in Krakow he said that he wasn't satisfied with the sound on the Varese as well as the cover artwork, I'm sure this La-La Land release will do it justice!

I don't like to admit it but yeah the score does creep me out (as does the film) that's why I'm a little hesitant about purchasing it, Eventhough I've never own the original Varese album. However I do want to add more Goldenthal scores to my collection. I guess I'll wait for feedback before making a decision on rather to purchase this or not.

I saw it mentioned in the LaLaNews thread, but I didnt see it explicitly described as the "surprise" release. I posted my question there, but seemed to get buried immediately. Thought I'd get a reply in this announcement thread. The thread that started the "hint" never got updated.

Sounds good to me. I always thought the song was at odds with the mood set up by the score. Can't wait to hear new Goldenthal! Was there anything that wasn't used in the film?

It's worth noting that this is NOT the official "announcement thread," just a thread based on the Facebook posting, created by an enthusiastic fan. smile

Ack! My bank account! I've never been a huge fan of this score, mainly because I find the audio quality on the Varese release severely lacking, but I splurge for anything Goldenthal.

Pretty much everything Goldenthal wrote wound up in the film. There are a few alternates, variant mixes and things of that nature.

Great to see more expanded Goldenthal, I think it is only his second score getting an expanded release (the other being LLL's Batman Forever).

As he seems to have been involved in this release I wonder why he would be preventing the release of the complete version of his (IMO) masterpiece "Alien 3" (I think MV mentioned in another thread that the main difficulty with that release is the composer being alive). I just hope MV can convice him to allow a complete Alien 3 in the near future!
