Various Artists

Music by James Bernard, Mario Nascimbene, Carlo Martelli, Humphrey Searle, Christopher Gunning, David Whitaker & Benjamin Frankel

“Full marks to Silva Screen for the presentation of this 2CD collection of horror film from Hammer’s heyday. ‘Don’t Hear It Alone’ screams the cover, beneath a drawing of Dracula about to pounce on his beautiful, hapless victim. These are new recordings and today’s digital technology makes the music even more spine chillingly creepy with of course, crashes and bangs aplenty to make you jump out of your skin. Whether you are a horror aficionado or not, you have to marvel at the descriptive power of these scores.” – Classic FM Magazine

“…The real reason to buy this album – and the secret to much of Hammer’s success – is the subject of disc one: the late James Bernard. His music for the Dracula movies occupies a unique niche, with it’s dizzyingly fast chase material and outrageously sentimental romantic motifs. Proof that music can scare without resorting to shock tactics.” – Total Film

“Baron Frankenstein himself would probably approve of this bloody good compilation” – Dreamwatch Magazine

Performed by The Philharmonia Orchestra, The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra & The Westminster Philharmonic Orchestra
