La Cripta E L'Incubo aka Crypt Of The Vampire

Today I present the score to LA CRIPTA E L'INCUBO (1963) by Carlo Savina. This film is known under a wide variety of titles but most know it as CRYPT OF THE VAMPIRE. The CD was released by Digitmovies (Catalog Code: CDDM182) back in March of 2011.

I've never seen this movie. I do know it's an Italian gothic horror film that is loosely based on Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu's famous novella "Carmilla"

There was a DVD release back in 2006 that is still available and rather inexpensive. I'll have to pick it up one of these days.

I've only had a chance to listen to the CD once (I'm on my second listen right now as I type this up) so I'm not sure how to explain it other than it reminds me of the music from other Italian gothic horror films like Bava's BLACK SUNDAY etc. and while it is very different from the giallo scores that came later I am still enjoying it very much.

The first part is 199MB and the second part is approximately 42MB. The files use 7z compression. I suggest using 7-Zip for extraction. Also note that the files are password protected and that this password is: terrorxpress

As per my usual methods the CD was ripped with EAC to the FLAC format and includes the EAC made LOG file and CUE Sheet file. I also made a M3U PlayList file and provide high quality artwork scans (please note I only scanned the CD cover).

Until next time ... listen until your ear's bleed !!!
