Poll: Best SF/Fantasy/Horror Movie Soundtrack?

February 22nd, 2009

OK, I don’t want to repeat myself exactly from yesterday’s sf band thing, but I was inspired by Phil Plait’s post about this utterly fantastic video:

As you may or may not know, Orff’s ‘O Fortuna’ was used extensively in the movie Excalibur.   Other parts of the soundtrack had this great theremin-sounding stuff and wailing voices and I loved it.

My all-time favorite soundtrack has to be Conan the Barbarian by Basil Poledouris.   Totally awesome:

OK, there are some other great soundtracks out there. Star Wars is quite memorable. I liked Bram Stoker’s Dracula sound track very well, too. Some strange ones, too, like Lady Hawke. A lot of good ones out there of different types. Which do you like the best?
