Riz Ortolani

La Danza Macabra

Riz Ortolani - La Danza Macabra

A deluxe edition of the soundtrack composed and directed by Riz Ortolani for the 1964 horror movie Danza Macabra (a.k.a. Castle Of Blood) directed by Anthony M. Dawson (Antonio Margheriti) and starring Georges Rivière, Barbara Steele, Phil Karlson, Raoul H. Newman. For the first time ever on vinyl, this amazing soundtrack is one of the best works composed and directed by Riz Ortolani. I must say it’s the perfect soundtrack to describe the gothic atmosphere of the movie. Beside a few melodic moments, an orchestra never sounded so “horrific”. Pure terror!!! The complete recordings remastered from the original analog tapes. Master and sound restoring done by Roberto Zamori at Film Music Art Studio. Beautiful gatefold sleeve cover artwork done with the original movie poster, as we did for Morricone’s L’Istruttoria E’ Chiusa.
