Released by Aleph
The Amityville Horror
Lalo Schifrin re-recorded his original, Oscar-nominated score for the 1979 horror film for release on his Aleph label, but it’s so faithful to the original that most listeners won’t notice — plus it’s considerably more complete than the old LP. The Schifrins asked me to contribute notes, which was a pleasure and an honor. This was a movie that needed a lot of help in the suspense-and-terror department, and Schifrin delivered spectacularly.
