Halloween cinema special

Roll up for the best of this year’s Halloween horror cinema, from the Dead & Breakfast all-nighter in Derby to The Exorcist with added ouija board experience in Muswell Hill

To the traditional sounds of Halloween – screams of terror, groans of pain, revving chainsaws, retching in the aisles and the like – come some more tuneful emanations this hallowed eve. Film-plus-live-music events are this season’s must-have, it seems. The perennial Chills In The Chapel, at Islington’s Union Chapel, has been doing this for a while. This year it brings electronic composer and John Carpenter collaborator Alan Howarth to preside over doomful synth accompaniment to Escape From New York (Fri), and a medley of clips from the Halloween franchise (31 Oct). In a similar vein, Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin perform their score to a screening of giallo classic Profondo Rosso live for the climax of Sheffield’s gruesomely varied Celluloid Screams horror festival this Sunday.

Album Review: Goblin Rebirth – Goblin Rebirth

I am a self-proclaimed giallo fiend. I didn’t really care that much for horror (outside the tentpole films like Alien and Dawn Of The Dead) until I saw Suspiria for the first time. The Dawn of the Dead score is a fantastic one but it lurks and shadows the film, waiting for the right moment to attack, differentiating itself by merit of mixing soundscapes with dissonance. Goblin’s score for Suspiria is a musical black swan, emerging fully-formed from the magickal intersection of prog, psychedelia and the cinematic works of Goblin’s forbears Stelvio Cipriani and Bruno Nicolai. It wasn’t subtle (or even, arguably, a suitable film score) but, at the same time, it had a mystique and richness unlike any score before it. At the time, the band Goblin was comprised of five players: Massimo (guitars), Fabio (bass), Agostino (drums), uncredited keyboardist Maurizio and lead composer Claudio Simonetti.
