Music for Muffy

Okay, it's not even close to April right now, but to get folks into the Halloween spirit a little early, here's Charles Bernstein's excellent, diverse little score for one of the most underrated '80s horror films, April Fools' Day (which is usually classified as a slasher film, even though it's not at all). Nice direction by the much-missed Fred Walton (When a Stranger Calls), a dream '80s cast including Amy Steel and Deborah Foreman, and that cool twist ending make this highly recommended. Later ripped off shamelessly in 2005 by the painfully stupid Cry_Wolf; stick with the original.

So that song is chopped? I'm so thankful for this being up, but lemme know if I need to wait for a fixed version to go up. That might be tempting fate. I'll grab it anyway, you never know what will happen!

Ah crap, you were talking about Psycho 3. What a doofus I am to not catch that. No matter, 'cause this means it's time to download AFD! Thanks!

Great post! It's a fun movie, and I still get that end credits song stuck in my head sometimes, even though it's been years since the last time I heard it. Thanks!

No problem, I'll have the fixed PSYCHO III track up tonight. (I think that post is jinxed.) APRIL FOOL'S DAY should be fine.

Hey, great blog! I absolutely adore this movie, and think it's one of the great horror films of the era. Lots of fun! And speaking of slasher movies (whether this one is or isn't), does anybody know if a soundtrack recording was ever released for Jeff Lieberman's Just Before Dawn? Easily one of the eeriest and most underrated scores of the era (love those violins!)

Wow...I always wondered if a soundtrack album existed for this great, often underrated movie. My only complaint is that nobody ever actually braids their hair into a noose in it--but, actually, the movie's probably better for it.

Track 3 in the zip file is "Noelle's Theme;" it's complete. Check the PSYCHO III post/comments for the full "Shower" track. Enjoy!
