ALESSANDRO ALESSANDRONI - La Terrificante Notte Del Demonio (Devil’s Nightmare)
DEVIL’S NIGHTMARE (La terrificante notte del demonio) 1971 by ALESSANDRO ALESSANDRONI, considered one of the most evocative and suggestive horror soundtracks, marked his debut release on LP, from original master tapes, in 2017 thanks to Cinedelic records, and in a few days it was sold out.
It is now repressed in 300 copies. Don't miss it!
Directed by Patrice Romme, THE DEVIL'S NIGHTMARE was an Italian-Belgian production and featured main performers Jean Servais alongside a sensual Erika Blanc; also worthy of note is the disturbing presence of the graceful and filiform silhouette of Daniel Emilfork in the role of Satan. The film's components are typical of the Euro-horror genre of the time: a Gothic castle, eroticism, and bloody murders…all in a spectral and dense photograph.
It is the music of Maestro Alessandro Alessandroni, who needs no introduction, to indelibly mark the listener, starting with the hypnotic, psychedelic opening theme to which the harpsichord and his faithful Fender Stratocaster add the acid and fuzz, overlapping the silly wordless vocals of his companion Giulia De Mutiis.
