Dr.Chris Record Spotlight: Dracula

Posted in entertainment, music, record, vampires, vinyl on November 20, 2015 by chrisdsav

Dracula staring Frank Langella as the count himself came out in 1980 with a great score by John Williams. The music was composed and conducted by Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra.

If your not familiar  with John Williams work, then I am ashamed at you, he is one of the most reconnizable conducted in the history of cinema, for films The Star Wars Saga episodes 1-7, Superman, Jaws,  Indiana Jones 1-4 and so many more.

It’s a dark Gothic macabre score for Williams, and his first Vampire score. It has a really nice feel and you can tell this is Williams work in the very beginning  of the movie as the helicopter flies over head as a tracking shot is used across the ocean to Dracula’s  Castle.

The vinyl it self is not much to look at in the way of anything artistic  or fancy compared to my previous vinyl reviews. With Langella on the front and the tracks on the back.

It’s a very romantic  piece of music something  I would put on for that date who enjoys the romance of the vampire.

Hey everyone  who reads the blog and follows the show on WCUW 91.3 FM. I will be at the Hartford  Comic  Con this weekend. If your from CT come on down buy a ticket. As I have at previous  conventions we will be raising money for a charity. The Boston Children’s Hospital in Boston Massachusetts  saved my son’s life 8 years  ago and he continues  being a patient  there doing yearly check ups. We will be giving away prizes such as posters, t shirts, books, comics, DVDs and blu rays, and other assorted items from the horror industry. I will have my lovely assistant Elena Ferrari with me to help at the convention.

I may or may not have a show this weekend……live. Radio of Horror will still be on the air with past interviews and more.
Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook  and our youtube channel for past interviews.

Dr.Chris Record Spotlight: DOCTOR WHO

Posted in aliens, entertainment, sci-fi, Time Travel, vinyl on August 4, 2015 by chrisdsav

This month we showcase the sound track of  DoctorWho. This limited edition vinyl was put out in time for the 50th Anniversary  of the doctor.
It’s a pictured stamped album with David Matt and Chris the last three doctors before Peter Capaldi on one side and the Tardis in the time vortex on the other. Ypu really get a striking image of the Doctor looking at it spin on your player.

The music is by Murray Gold and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Conducted by Ben Foster. Round Grainer  did the track for The Doctor Who theme.
The company who produced this is Spacelab and Silva Screen Records. It was only sent to Hottopics. You may be able to find it on the BBC shop site or Doctor Who fan sites but I’m not sure.

I am the Doctor is one of the best themes on here and it’s great to hear on your record player. It really give you a sense of hero worship listening to this great theme.
He music seems mostly from the 7th series of the new Who. Less to do with Christopher Echelons run as the doctor.

If you can find it it’s a great compilation of music at a affordable  price, 19.99. We will be playing this album on Radio of Horror some time soon.

The Evil Within The Assignment

Posted in entertainment, Japan, Monsters, Video Games on May 16, 2015 by chrisdsav

Been a couple weeks since I did a Saturday game review and we come back this time with a return to one of my favorite more recent survival horror games.
New DLC content arrived for The Evil Within and its kind of what fans were hoping for from the get go with this new game from Bethesda games.
This time you play as Julie Kidman the third person !aim character seen throughout the main game. At the end of the main story you learn she was involved with a shadowy organization controlling the bad guy Leslie and his alternate personality Ruvik.
Kidman’s story runs parallel with the main game thru the Assignment.
You are given very little in the way of weapons and can only attack some thing in chapter two by sneaking up behind a creature with an Axe. One of the new enemies introduced is The Spotlight a shrieking arm bound or arm less (its hard to tell in the dark) when she shines her light on you comes charging after you looking to kill you.

The game has a duck and cover feel depending more on survival and less on shooting and killing an enemy. You don’t know when a grotesque horror will pop out and try to chop you up.

Other enemies all appear too be from the main story and you have to fight Joseph who has been posted by Ruvik. You get clues to Julies past and bits of prices of the main mystery.
This is one of three DLC chapters I will be reviewing. Expect the second two to come in a few weeks.
