Goblin Buio Omega Soundtrack

buio-omega-goblin

Goblin soundtracks on vinyl–especially those on Cinevox–are going for ridiculous collector prices. One is priced at over $70.00! That much of a vinyl purist I am NOT. I prefer to download these instead and look for the vinyl versions used. This soundtrack album for the film Buio Omega is pretty sweet, sounds I’ve been searching for but never managed to find at an acceptable price–at least on vinyl.

It’s got PLENTY of 80s Italian horror soundtrack cheese–alternately moody and goofy. Goblin was in heavy synth mode here–there’s none of the industrial clang-and-shriek of Suspiria, and the dancefloor groove of Tenebrae is also missing…but there’s no denying the synth-cheese on this…it’s pretty tasty. Goblin is in fine, if restrained, form here.

The movie itself is twisted, lurid and just plain wrong. It’s got a nightmare quality that elevates it above the average twisted 80s shockers, but there are some genuinely stomach-churningly grotty scenes in this one...purchase Goblin’s soundtrack instead and get the cheese sans the necrophile imagery…
