This is a great, catchy synth score from Silvestri from a period when he was at his most creative. Been content listening to a Vinyl rip I made but would love a nice gleeming remaster on CD. Is this a Varese Perpetuity title?
Yeah Francis. I think it is poorly made. Then again, most King pictures are not very good.
James Woods is the redeeming thing about this one. Overall I just mean that the demand for the score for this is probably somewhat relative to the limitations on the love for this film. Jerry Goldsmith is one exception where no matter how terrible his films were there was still a pretty big demand for his score.
I am not feeling that power for Silvestri, much as I like some of his stuff.
Well it is early Silvestri synths and that is not my favorite style of his, as a matter of fact I first didn't care for the score but its at times cartoonish quality grew on me and I wont deny that the nostalgia about the movie helps in that department. I still wouldn't mind a 1000 unit Varese Club edition, it did have a prior lp release like Children of the Corn did and that sold out fast at 1000.
Iv'e always been partial to Silvestri's synth scores because he always came up with really cool catchy hooks to drag you in. The scores in general could be so-so but that theme was awesome. Delta Force, No Mercy anyone? The main theme to Cat's Eye could easily be mistaken as an early synth demo of his Back To the Future theme.
