I always believe that I have a top five, but it seems to me like there is always, always, always a never ending competition between his many, many, many top scores, a never ceasing ascending movement.

What are your top five picks?

3. The Exorcism of Emily Rose
4. The Fly 2
5. The Hurricane

Hard Rain

The Fly 2

That's four. I really need to explore more of his work. I'm sure I'm missing out on a lot of great stuff.

One of my favorite composers. Too dificult to select a top "5" as several of his scores are great.

1. Hellraiser (hope he allows a complete release someday)
2. The Fly 2 (hope he allows a complete release someday)
3. The Killing Season
4. The Core
5. Drag Me To Hell

Lots of runner's up (Murder In The First, Species, The Glass House [probably he considers this one of his "Jennifer 9, 10..." as he mentioned that after the success of "Jennifer 8" directors kept asking similar scores from him - but this one has such a lovely main theme], Copycat, The Ghost Rider, Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Priest...)

Flowers In The Attic
Bat 21
Fly 2
Haunted Summer
Murder In The First
Something The Lord Made
The Killing Season
Monkey King 1 & 2 wink
