Ennio Morricone - Exorcist II: The Heretic

I make no claims that this movie is any good,but the Morricone soundtrack is of course a complex and frightening listen. While the film itself was vastly inferior to it predecessor and underrated sequel, Morricone's main theme "Pazuzu" is as terrifying as "Tubular Bells" from the original, and infinitely more alien and disorienting. Other facets of his work, such as his groovy psych/prog experiments and his percussion choruses crop up here in between calm, dirge-like string passages and eerie gospel. I promise, a dark room and a pair of headphones will give you ten times the chills "The Heretic" could ever provide.
Great Bird of the Sky


  1. that movie is as entertaining as it is nonsensical

  2. I agree that this album is far superior to the flick itself. And I uber agree that Exorcist III is underrated, fucking scary movie that one.

  3. never could bring myself to watchany of tje sequels , but who can resist a morricone soundtrack
