She Demons & The Astounding She-Monster [MMM-1971] offers music to watch girls by – girls who want to kill you! This extremely fun CD opens with Nicholas Carras' rousing 1958 score for She Demons, which is easily his most-requested title. The music will surely get your toes tapping with its jungle drum rhythms. Besides demon-dance tunes and horror cues that'll make you never want to be alone with a woman again, there's music for evil Nazis, volcanic eruptions, and even some island romance. You'll enjoy spending some time with these feminine fiends who've definitely got the beat!
One thing you can say about Guenther Kauer's 1957 score for The Astounding-She Monster – it's astounding! Unlike any other soundtrack from a 1950s horror movie, it's impossible to guess how Kauer was inspired to create something so inventive for this rather pedestrian low-budget film about a deadly female extraterrestrial. The superb writing will remind some of Bernard Herrmann, but Kauer has a unique voice. Recorded in Germany and transferred from the composer's master tapes, this creation by the almost-unknown writer will be a revelation to those who have never seen the movie and a much-desired treasure for those who have watched it dozens of times. You might also recognize this score from its re-use in the truly awful Tor Johnson picture, The Beast of Yucca Flats! This release contains almost an hour of music and the 20-page illustrated liner book details the music, the composers, and the movies. The riveting cover art is by the legendary Vincent Di Fate.
