Five Awesome Italian Horror Movies With Ennio Morricone Soundtracks

Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack work automatically classes up any film he’s attached to, and Lucio Fulci’s Lizard In A Woman’s Skin is no exception. The movie itself is super-trippy, surreal, and a fun watch. But the soundtrack is such a massive part of this film that it’s really hard to separate the two.

If you need proof of that, here’s the trailer (available on Youtube while it lasts, naturally. You know how these things go…)


If you are into the Ennio Morricone sounds you hear in the trailer, you can buy the Death Waltz vinyl reissue of the Lizard In A Woman’s Skin from Turntabling while supplies last, but you can also check out the DVD reissue from the always-awesome Mondo Macabro. Buy the Mondo Macabro Lizard In A Woman’s Skin DVD.

Another super-awesome Italian film with an essential Ennio Morricone soundtrack? Dario Argento’s Four Flies On Grey Velvet.


Yes, we love trailers at Turntabling, and can’t get enough of these, so we like to post them as often as we can. The Dario Argento / Ennio Morricone connection never gets old, and this movie features some great work by Morricone with some nice prog touches and the usual moody, “death is creeping up on you” swells and swoons.

Some complain about the pacing of Four Flies on Grey Velvet, but die-hard giallo fans can’t get enough of this. Turntabling has at least one copy of the soundtrack on AMS/Cinevox. It’s a great vinyl record! Buy the Four Flies On Grey Velvet soundtrack from Turntabling while supplies last.

If you need a copy of the movie you can always check out the MYA reissue which seems to be more readily available these days-it’s a DVD version of Argento’s Four Flies on Grey Velvet that some might feel is quite as obsessive or stunning as an Arrow Video release, but if you are dying to see (and own) a copy, this is one to look at.

There’s nothing at all wrong with the MYA release, but it if you are looking for tons of bells & whistles, this ain’t the version of the film for you, sporting a few trailers for Four Flies, an image gallery, and English-language credits. Chances are good many reading this are hungry for more…but if you just need to experience the film, there’s nothing at all wrong with the MYA version for that.

Arrow Video Cat O Nine Tails Argento Morricone

Speaking of Arrow Video, their two-disc edition of Dario Argento’s Cat O’Nine Tails is DEFINITELY something you should invest in-Arrow puts so much care into these releases, it’s very difficult to praise them enough. The soundtrack by Ennio Morricone gets REALLY experimental on this one, and it’s one of his all-time best if you are into dissonance, surreal sounds, and a wildly unpredictable sonic journey with just enough jazz influence to put this on a completely different level even alongside the Maestro’s other work of the period.

And no recommendation of Italian cinema featuring Morricone’s work would be complete without a mention of the terrific Black Belly Of The Tarantula, another unusual journey into the wild, unpredictable world of Giallo films, this one featuring a killer fond of paralyzing people with a poison-tipped needle before doing the unspeakable crimes.

This soundtrack is a prize amongst some giallo lovers, at least the ones around here. You can buy The Black Belly of the Tarantula by Ennio Morricone on vinyl from Turntabling while supplies last, but do be sure and check out the trailer below if you haven’t seen this outstanding Italian film from 1971.


And finally, giallo fans hooked on The Black Belly of the Tarantula should not pass up the chance to see The Fifth Cord, which is yet another Franco Nero giallo, this one kicking off on New Year’s Eve and going right into the black-gloved, fedora-wearing madness! Yes, at Turntabling, this one goes on the player EVERY New Year’s eve (or day) along with New Year’s Evil, which is a classic of a whole ‘nother kind.

Check out the trailer for this one below (while it lasts on YouTube), and keep your eyes peeled for a vinyl copy of this one-not as easy to find as one might think!




Mort Garson Black Mass Lucifer

The Wonderfully Surreal Vinyl Of Mort Garson

Mort Garson Black Mass Lucifer
The wonderfully surreal world of Mort Garson includes a nice assortment of unusual vinyl records, many of which are fairly analog-synth heavy and all of which are fun to listen to. Taking a vacation to Garson-land, in terms of diving into his back catalog, is a joy more record lovers should try.

Garson covered a lot of ground in his career as a multi-talented composer, conductor, arranger, performer, etc. before he died in 2008 and his legacy is pretty damn enviable for fans of unusual vinyl records-“love sounds” music, occult-themed modular synth freakouts, and yes, music for sensuous lovers, and for plants (see below).

Mort Garson The Zodia Cosmic Sounds vinyl record

We don’t need to go into the entire Mort Garson bio, since the super-fantastic Space Age Pop has already done an extensive biography and Turntabling highly recommends this site for all your Space Age Bachelor Pad music detail needs (and more). But suffice it to say that Garson, a military veteran and among the early adopters of Robert Moog’s synthesizers, is a force to be reckoned with if you’re a hardcore vinyl lover with a penchant for Moog sounds (and Turntabling is ALL ABOUT that).

Have a listen to these amazing Mort Garson sounds while they last on Youtube-they are well worth seeking out! Especially the adults-only Music For Sensuous Lovers, which is Garson’s contribution to the Adults-Only vinyl craze of yesteryear. These links might not stay up forever, hear ’em while you can!

What Have You Done To Solange soundtrack

Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack for Cosa Avete Fatto A Solange? (What Have You Done To Solange?) is, for obsessive Morricone lovers at the very least, a MUST-HAVE. The lurid album cover art, the salacious set pieces, and the dreamy vocalizations of Edda dell’Orso make this one of the all-time greats of the era. Have a good look (and listen) to the trailer and you might just catch yourself wondering why you never checked this one out before. If you already know, imagine how it great it would be to hear this for the first time all over again.Solange vinyl record soundtrack morricone

Jess Franco did a wonderful thing by bringing on Morricone conductor (and soundtrack legend in his own right) Bruno Nicolai on board for his film referencing de Sade…this one is also back in stock and features the super-groovy Drug Party track worth the price of the LP all by itself.
