The Horror! The Legend Of Hell House Soundtrack & Creepy Comics

An unreleased soundtrack from 1973, this is obviously Dark Horrorcore Hauntology before the term was invented, by me, two minutes ago. Complete with heavy breathing, screams (naturally), indiscernible voices, and an almost continuous drone, it’s a short but brilliantly effective creation. BBC Radiophonic Workshop stalwarts Derbyshire and Hodgson work some black magic at the mixing desk, adding occasional baritone sax, trumpet and muted tribal drumming for extra depth. This is a perfectly nightmarish ambient affair.

I’ve included some Horror comic scans below for your gruesome viewing pleasure.
