Goldsmith once said that the role of a film composer was to score the emotion, not the visuals, and this Oscar-nominated horror masterwork demonstrates that philosophy perfectly. Although the ghostly Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg film brings the scares, Goldsmith looked beyond that to score the underlying love between the Freeling family that comes under threat from the supernatural scourge. The result is a powerful score that mixes tender lyricism in the form of Carol Anne’s Theme with some of the most complex and compelling material of Goldsmith’s career, a score that brilliantly pinballs between shock and awe. An enduring masterpiece in the composer’s impressive oeuvre.

One of the finest scores of the ’80s are any era. Layered, symphonic and drawing from Goldsmith’s incredibly wealth of music knowledge. A masterpiece. A must-have
