Claudio Gizzi - Old Age of Dracula (1974)



Today’s Music for the Month of Halloween selection is Claudio Gizzi’s main title for the 1974 Italian-French Paul Morrissey film ‘Blood for Dracula’, which was produced by Andy Warhol and later marketed in the US as ‘Andy’s Warhol’s Blood for Dracula’. I have yet to see the movie in its entirety, but Gizzi score has a dramatic, gothic atmosphere which I really enjoy, and his main theme, otherwise known as “Old Age of Dracula”, is especially sad. Equally evocative is his score for Paul Morrissey’s ‘Flesh for Frankenstein’, released in 1973. Great stuff.
