Francois De Roubaix - Daughters Of Darkness (Soundtrack) [LP]
Limited 180gm red vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Includes exclusive poster and printed inner sleeve. The French film composer Francois de Roubaix recorded compositions for a lot of movies. One of them is the Belgian cult horror classic Daughters of Darkness. The soundtrack to the erotic vampire film consists of a lot of different musical elements and is a seductive score. It is one of Francois' finest pieces of music. The colorful compositions support the love story and the different ways the vampires interact. The movie has been voted by authors, directors, actors and critics as one of the top horror films of all time. According to the critic Geoffrey O'Brien, 'Daughters of Darkness leans flamboyantly toward the artistic end of the Lesbian vampires spectrum, with Delphine Seyrig sporting Marienbadlike costumes and the Belgian director conjuring up images of luxurious decadence replete with feathers, mirrors, and long, winding hotel corridors'. At the film's core, however, is a deeply unpleasant evocation of a war of nerves between Seyrig's vampire and the bourgeois newlyweds into whose honeymoon she insinuates herself.
