Chuck Cirino - Chopping Mall (Theme) (1986)

Today's Music for the Month of Halloween installment is the main theme for 'Chopping Mall', a 1986 slasher movie about high-tech mall security robots which malfunction and thus proceed to hunt down and exterminate a group of expectantly foolish teenagers partaking in an after hours party in the shopping center. My thoughts on the movie aside, I really dig this score; all sorts of funk-synth madness can be heard here, and overall it's just a downright fun, menacing piece of music.

For those who might be interested, Cirino seems to specialize in composing music for the horror genre, and imbd lists a total of 68 such works to his name. Nice, I guess. If 'Chopping Mall' is any sort of benchmark, perhaps you should skip the movie and listen to the soundtrack instead.

Also, to LJ friend kilobot8, your name has always reminded me of 'Chopping Mall'. :P
