I ask this because apart from the opening sequence where discount Jaqueline Bisset goes diving (which sounds similar to some of his material from Humanoids From The Deep), none of those early Horner tropes seem to be present. In fact, it sounds like a lot of the cues could even be library tracks.
Anyone really know how much Horner contributed to this film?
BTW the film is hilarious!

Roger Corman famously reused music, effects and sets from production to production.
Horner's music was tracked into quite a few of his films during that time.

Are you referring to L'isola degli uomini pesce?



Michelini wrote and recorded this score in 1978 and the film premiered in Italy in January 1979.

When it was distributed in 1981 on U.S. screens, it was titled Screamers and this is when some cues (Horner's?) were tracked into the Americanized print.

He scored the underwater sequences only. Part of it was used.

Watching this now. There's a repeating piece of music that is unmistakably Horner. It's a dark arpeggio for vibes, piano, and harp that would form the backbone of his HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP score a year later. His name isn't even in the opening credits, although a musical director (who was probably responsible for the luau source and any library music) IS credited.
