- Evil Dead 2013 Original Score by Roque Banos

Modern remakes of classic horror films can be a little hit and miss these days, with the advent of computer generated gore in place of real gunge and buckets full of fake blood, it can leave the cinema going public feeling a bit cheated in some ways. That said though, the 2013 reimagining of Sam Raimi’s 1981 zombie fest by Fede Alvarez was actually quite good, enough thrills and guts to satisfy the most hardcore of horror junkie.
This original soundtrack by Spanish composer Roque Banos fits the film quite perfectly, released on the cult label Death Waltz that brought you such delights as John Carpenter’s ‘The Fog’, Halloween and old school shockers like ‘Twins Of Evil’, this is pure horror in your ears, with sweeping strings and discordant piano taking you on a journey into that cabin in the woods from which no-one can survive.
The scary bits are super exaggerated by the screeching horn section and the tension built up by the ubiquitous vibrato strings. There is a reoccurring theme throughout the record, which is a strange siren sound that seems to warn you of an impending doom, like an old door slowly creeping open to reveal the demon within. With Banos graduating from Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music it’s no wonder he’s now making music of this caliber, slick and professional and with the power to invoke sheer terror, this is a must for the horror soundtrack lover and if you’re of the faint hearted, trust me, I wouldn’t listen to this with the lights turned out.
