Dellamorte Dellamore OST

While preparing for the Dylan Dog Special that's coming this Friday night, this is a little curio I came up with, he-he...

Given the tight budget director Michele Soavi had in order to make Dellamorte Dellamore (aka Cemetery Man) back in 1993, it is remarkable how good the film looks throughout. The acting, the camera, the sets, the make up, a good deal of the special effects - they are all quite professional, at times bordering with genius (Rupert Everett's performance, the cemetery sets). The music by Manuel de Sica is rather effective as well, boosting the emotional voyage of the main character, Francesco Dellamorte while staying pretty listenable on its own. Of course, the roots of the soundtrack fall in Italian horror territory so you should expect extensive use of keyboards and sounds usually linked with the 1970s. That aside, the only thing that this soundtrack really lacks are some of the original songs found in the film, such as the totally kitschy and addictive Sezen Aksu hit, "Hadi Bakalim".
