HM: No. The studio never made any particular demands about the music – they were just pleased with the way things were going. Some of the films had to use more old material because my schedule didn’t give me time to write any new music. And of course sometimes the editing got so crazy because of censorship from the MPAA that even though I had written music specifically to fit a scene, sometimes it might have been cut so much that the music editor had to patch it up with cues from an earlier film! I didn’t specifically write music for Friday the 13th Part VII or VIII but I think some of my music got reused in there anyway.
