My good friend Mike at blogthejerk.blogspot.com/ posted the killer Last house on the left soundtrack yesterday, so today I thought I would post this Italian masterstroke. So here's Riz Ortolani's soundtrack to cannibal holocaust. This soundtrack has got to be one of the more depressing recordings I have heard(just like the movie). There's just something here that brings you down, it's hard to explain really. I think I would feel the same way even if I hadn't seen this movie. Despite what you may think about it and I know there are a lot of different opinions, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST stands the test of time. Its still shocking to this day and has lived up to it's legend unlike several other Italian gut munchers. Riz Ortaolani scored several exploit classics such as MONDO CANE, CASTLE OF BLOOD GOODBYE UNCLE TOM and SO SWEET...SO PERVERSE, all of which are great soundtracks. Forget any feeling you have toward this flick and enjoy this great soundtrack.
