Phantasm - O.S.T by Fred Myrow & Malcolm Seagrave

Here is the soundtrack to one of the most surreal, odd, and downright creepy little horror films you're likely to see, Don Coscarelli's "Phantasm". This was one of the movies that frightened the crap out of me when I first saw it, with its little hooded people and The Tall Man, chillingly portrayed by the excellent Angus Scrimm, walking through the halls of one of the creepiest mausoleums ever, and the damn spheres, going around, drilling for brains. It freaked me out when I was younger, and to this day my mom swears that it's the scariest movie she's ever seen. Don Coscarelli also directed "Beastmaster" and "Bubba-Hotep", and an excellent episode of "Masters Of Horror" called "Incident On And Off A Mountain Road", from a short story by Joe Lansdale, which also features Angus Scrimm (and drilling for brains!), which brings us back to the point, which is that this is the soundtrack to Phantasm, eerie, scary, and just for you.
