New from Digitmovies
21-Jul-2008 - Digitmovies has released in the wonderful territory between mystery and eroticism of Jess Franco, for the first time the rare complete and stereo score by Bruno Nicolai for the Franco movie realized in 1970: Les Cauchemars Nassent La Nuit (aka “Nightmare come at night”) starring Diana Lorys, Paul Muller, Jack Taylor, Colette Giacobine, Soledad Miranda (under the pseudonym of Susan Korda). The movie tells the ambiguous story of two female exotic dancers who embark on an erotic friendship which takes a turn when one of them begins having recurring nightmares of her killing people and where the line between realty and fantasy begins to blur to the most extreme. This score has never been never released on record officially, even if some tracks were possibly included on library albums of Edipan. For this CD every note recorded those days has been used: the master tapes kept in the Edipan vaults were rescued in very good conditions and in full stereo.
Another one from Digitmovies is the ninth volume of the series dedicated to the soundtracks of the Italian Peplum genre: for the first time the complete score by Carlo Innocenzi written for the movie Il Terrore Dei Barbari (aka “Goliath and the barbarians”) directed in 1959 by Carlo Campogalliani. The movie tells about the invasion of Italy from Alboino and his army, faced by the muscleman Emiliano. Among bloody battles there is also space for love due the fact that Emiliano falls in love with Landa, daughter of Delfo, the duke governor of the country. Of this score at that time not a single note was released, but in the USA the American version distributed by Roger Corman’s AIP changed the music and Les Baxter was engaged to write an alternate score. In those days the score of M° Baxter appeared on a stereo album titled “Barbarian” and later re-issued by Varese Sarabande (VC 81078). The Italian score was conducted by Franco Ferrara. This CD is possible again thanks to the big help of C.A.M. in whose historic vaults the original mono master tapes are survived until today.
The third release by Digitmovies is Dellamorte Dellamore, directed by Michele Soavi and starring Rupert Everett, François Hadji-Lazaro, Anna Falchi, has been considered a cult of the genre since its theatrical release (1994). Francesco Dellamorte is a guardian of the Buffalora cemetery, a North Italian town.The protagonist’s close collaborator is Gnaghi, who spends all his time in front of the tv set. By day Francesco lives a boring and depressing life, but by night he becomes a living dead’s exterminator.In fact,dead people of the town come back to life seven days after their death.The score is written by Manuel De Sica, author of several scores for Cinema and TV. This de-luxe CD edition is the complete version of the score.
