Evil Dead Trap/Tomohiko Kira
Honestly, this isn't something I ever thought I'd find myself posting. It's just so fucking obscure. Years ago I was on a random myspace made for fans of horror film music and one of the tracks they had up was the main theme for a Japanese gore flick from the 80's called "Evil Dead Trap". Not to be confused with "The Evil Dead". I planned on not listening to it much but I gave it a few seconds listen... low and behold this theme really got me. I downloaded the theme and searched for the soundtrack and found nothing. Not a single clue as to whether there was ever a soundtrack or bootleg at all. Years went by.
The other day I stumbled upon this 12 track score for the film from one of my favorite non-blog sources. The person who had it didn't speak very good english. When I asked he/she about the soundtrack's origin and whether it was a bootleg they just said something to the extent of 'hope you enjoy... i do not no... bootleg probly!"
I haven't seen the film yet but I plan on netflixing it very soon. Surprising since these are the type of movies I pretty much live for!
The film's main theme is what stands out the most (Track 1). Absolutely moody. I was almost dissapointed to find that tracks 7-12 are pretty much just variants on a particular chase theme. But they are still very good and in all honesty there is not even a smidgen of room for me to complain being that this is probably the rarest score I have in possession.
There is no real poster image I have for introduction like with most posts. All I could find was a DVD cover. There's not much on the web about this movie except for reviews and one small fansite.
So here you are... no track listing. Just tracks 1-12. This one's a keeper.
