Film Score Friday 8/19/22

This week Intrada has released two separate score albums by two different composers for the same film.

LIFEFORCE, released in 1985, was Cannon Pictures' attempt at making a lavish sci-fi horror film in the vein of Nigel Kneale's Quatermass stories. Originally titled Space Vampires (until Tri-Star, its American distributor, decided that wasn't a classy enough title), the film was directed by horror legend Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist) and starred Steve Railsback, Oscar nominees Peter Firth and Frank Finlay, Patrick Stewart, Michael Gothard, and a memorably naked Mathilda May, with visual effects by Star Wars Oscar winner John Dykstra.

Henry Mancini composed the film's exciting original orchestral score, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, but when the film was released in the United States, its run time was reduced from 116 minutes to 101 minutes, and parts of Mancini's score were replaced by new music composed by Michael Kamen in hopes of making the film more traditionally scary. (The original, Mancini-only cut of the film has since become more widely available, and most revival house screenings of the film feature this longer European version.)

Intrada is releasing Mancini's score as a two-disc set, featuring the full score recorded for the film, the LP sequencing, and alternate cues. They are also releasing a full CD of the music Kamen composed and recorded for the film, much of it heard here for the first time.
