Tentacoli (Tentacles) Complete Soundtrack by Stelvio Cipriani Now Available for Pre-Order

Screen Archives released news last week of an upcoming release of Stelvio Cipriani's 1977 score for the Italian horror film Tentacoli.  The album is being produced by the Digitmovies label and is slated for a December release.  I'd always heard about the movie (and how awful it was) yet I've always been intrigued by Italian horror scores.  Looking into the music for this film brought many a pleasant surprise.  This music is just too good for the film.  Thoroughly exciting, catchy and totally 70s, this soundtrack is full of harpsichords and groovy melodies as well as some great electronic music.  Cipriani later used some of the music in his scores for cop movies.  This CD release boasts the complete soundtrack release with 16 minutes of unreleased music as well as bonus demo tracks.  I look forward to eventually purchasing it as it will probably be a great conversation piece at get-togethers.  Pre-order from Screen Archives Entertainment.

Original LP cover.  You really can't go wrong with the varied poster artwork for this film.
