OCR01772 - Splatterhouse 3 "Call of the Mask"

Recommended Posts

Short. Yet incredibly scary. Yet amazingly well done.

This guy still impress me a lot. Every song posted, there is an improvement. Strings are spot on and the choirs are pretty cool. It didn't needed a lot of samples to become a great track.

Very creepy. Very nicely done. Would be a great song for a haunted house, movie, etc.

My only issue is the trombone sound. Brass is near impossible to get to sound real, and while this is well done, it's still sounding a tad too fake. One minor gripe compared to a really good track, though.

This remix was very fitting for Halloween coming up. It's perfect for the occasion. I had it on repeat in my dark room with my headphones blasting. I got chills everytime. Ha ha!...and then I heard my door shut behind me...and jumped.

The strings really give this a sort of 90s Bruckheimer/Simpson action movie feeling, especially around 2:00.

Very atmospheric piece that would fit perfectly for some dark and dangerous dungeon in an adventure game/RPG. Nice use of the choir sample, too.

Very suspenseful; I almost expected something a bit more 'shocking' coming from the source, but this is a lot classier; great use of SFX like the rhythmic footsteps. Great textures and sample use, and some nice progression. The source doesn't lean to far towards a strong melody, but the mood set in the arrangement is the real star here.

Nice work. :-D

Orchestral, plus sound effects. Yeah, that's a movie score sound all right. This is one of the tracks I should listen and learn from. A lot of the time it seems so simple, yet is powerful, ominous, captivating... As if _it_ was a movie.

Wow very atmospheric :) Sounds so professional too I can imagine hearing this song exactly in Saw, Jeepers Creepers, I don't know any movie where the viewer is meant to think the bad guy is in the room with them as they watch the cinema innocently

I meant for that to sound creepy

No really, I'm scared. . . great work =)))

Reminds me a lot of a few of the creepy renditions of the Super Mario World's ghost house music that are here on the site. This is perhaps more understated, and probably benefits from it more on the creepy, mood-setting side of it. There's a distinct lack of driving melody, which actually becomes the mixes strongest trait. It becomes less about a journey through the usual stages of structured music and just lets the suggestions of tone seep into you.

The samples are a huge reason why I think this is so successful. The strings, choir and percussion do a stand-up job in capturing that cinematic horror vibe, and I even think the brass was a pretty acceptable selection.

It doesn't lend itself for multiple playings and its not really going to please anyone in the mood of an energetic party song, but given the right time, place and mood, it achieves everything it sets out to and sounds terrific in the process. A different approach to mixing and definately worth checking out.

This does a great job of creating a creepy atmosphere - this is a great example of accomplishing this without having to go into a 5-6 minute song with a lot of complexity to fully accomplish a concept. The orchestration is used just right I feel here.

This could be the theme to a REALLY good horror movie.. I actually like the chord progression especially in the first half

Great stuff !!

Well... This mix is absolutely chilling - to great effect, of course. I've listened to all of your other remixes tonight, too, and they've all successfully captured that film score-y kind of vibe. This one, however, I think is best if only for the fact that it really emphasizes mood and texture over melody, which makes it stand out from a lot of the other remixes on the site, while sticking true to its film score inspiration.
