The soundtrack CD for Hammer’s 1973 production The Satanic Rites of Dracula arrived in the post the other day and as I removed its cellophane wrapper I realised I hadn’t heard most of the music on it for the best part of thirty years, which also happens to be pretty much the length of time that I’ve been collecting music written specifically for films and horror films in particular. With that in mind John Cacavas’ score for Christopher Lee’s final bow as Dracula finally making it onto disk seemed as appropriate a moment as any to share my experiences in what I think can most definitely be termed a minority interest.
