PERRY BOTKIN, SOUNDTRACK - Silent Night, Deadly Night (2LP)

Death Waltz Recording Co. may be home to some of the scariest music around, but it doesn't mean that we don't get into the Christmas spirit now and again. In that tradition, here's our idea of Xmas cheer as we present the release of Perry Botkin's jolly old score to the controversial 1984 slasher SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT.

Composer Botkin is no slouch in the recording world, arranging for Bobby Darin, Harry Nilsson, & Barbra Streisand. His score is both chaotic and tragic; crashing sounds of distorted percussion are punctuated by both synth and acoustic piano, reflecting the sheer damage that has been done to Billy's mind. The end result is both emotional and terrifying, even more so with the selection of original Christmas songs as composed by Morgan Ames that are spread amongst the film's soundtrack. But a word of caution: If you don't have SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT on the turntable this Christmas we'll have to tell Billy that you've been. naughty. Consider yourselves warned.
