Dr.Chris Record Spotlight: Castlevania II Simon’s Quest

Posted in 80s, Dracula, entertainment, Monsters, music, vampires, Video Games, vinyl with tags , , , on July 7, 2017 by chrisdsav

It has been a long long time since I did one of these. I figured with the new anime show out now it be time to do another of the Castlevania records. I don’t have three yet which is what the new Netflix show is based on.  It’s on Netflix now check it out, the show is four epsiodes. 

The music is what you expect from the game. Not every one loves this game it’s the most controversial of the CASTLEVANIA games. The music was still spot on matching the gothic nature of the franchise fighting your way thru Dracula castle.

The soundtrack was composed by Kenichi Matsubara, who later created music for the Castlevania arcade title Haunted Castle.  Haunted is considered to be a very very difficult game to beat. 

The NES version of the sound track is on side A the Famicon version on side B. There are major difference between the two. I’m not a music expert but I do like scoree from both. 

The art for the album is by Eric Powell. I love the map of Castlevania in  the middle of the sleeve when you unfold it . If your a huge Castlevania fan like I am you want to pick this up and the other sound tracks Mondo was selling them I’m not sure if they are sold out of the special edtions but you can get the regular black vinyl here

WOW there were a lot of Horror movies in 2017 so far one a week and with more coming in February I thought the best way engage the audience about my thoughts would be to take it month by month. I am going to make some videos dedicated to the franchises we have out Resident Evil, Underworld and this weekend The Ring.  Stay tuned for those soon. All movies are playing at the Black Stone Valley Plaza in Millbury Ma off of rt 146  and other theaters around the country. 

UNDERWORLD BLOOD WARS

mv5bmji5njk0ntiynv5bml5banbnxkftztgwnju4mjy5mdi-_v1_sy1000_cr006741000_al_

When I heard this female led action series was going to be directed by a Woman I was very excited BUTTTTTT Anna Foerster really didnt make this movie unique or better than the last. In fact she seems to ignore things set up in part 4. Kate Beckindale returns in what has become the most tired worn out Vampire franchise since Sparkle Boy and Cock Tease Girl, Its so heavy on the CGI and bland plot line over the top action and not in the John Wick way. Plots are dropped and the more interesting characters are killed off. Its Nice to see Kate back in leather again but I don’t need to see another one of these films again. When this first started I was so excited and I loved the dvd when it finally came, but as the series went on it got worse and worse.

The BYE BYE MAN

Don’t say it Don’t think it Don’t Say it Don’t think it……yeah just keep saying that over and over and over again. What a great idea but executed so badly. Another movie with a FEMALE director this month Stacy Title and I would be very happy if it was not so bad. Doug Jones is her saving grace but he barely does anything in this movie . Carrie Ann Moss shows up as a detective trying to investigate what is going with these three college kids who are being manipulated by this Bad Bad Man and she is USELESS in this movie. Her characters has nothing to do. Pass on this one.

SPLIT
Of all the films I thought would be the worst was one of the best SPLIT is a decent thriller by M. Night Shyamalan  This was a decent portrayal of a split personality disorder. James McAvoy really shows his acting chops in this movie developing the different personality of the people inside Kevin. The onl;y problem I have is I wish we could have seen more of those other people as we only get maybe 7. The main character from last years The Witch and Barry, Anya Taylor Joy is really showing showing she is  becoming the IT girl of Hollywood. There is a HUGE connection to another M Night film, I hope you all caught it and there are other Easter Eggs in this film worth checking out. 

RESIDENT EVIL THE FINAL CHAPTER 

reinternational

Finally its over hopefully, I think so who knows Friday the 13th had its FINAL CHAPTER and he WENT TO HELL and we still got more Jason movies. I don’t know what Paul WS Anderson and his wife Mila Jovovitch are doing when they are making these movies. It opens In DC where we left the last film but with characters missing like Leo and Ada Wong and a powerless Alice with NO EXPLANATION of what happened. There is a movie between them and we never saw it. Claire Redfield shows back up with no mention of her brother Chris….he must have been making Prison Break the mini Series and DC Legends of Tomorrow. I like Ali Larter and live seeing her in things, I been in love with her since Final Destination, but this series wasted her as an actress. If this is what we call acting fuck this, this film series is just hear to suck money from you cuz people are too stupid to stop seeing them. You want a great Resident Evil Experience go play Part 7 Bio-hazard of the video games series. Trust me it will be well worth the money

On the show tonight from Fright Night Part 2 Julie Carmen. Her character in the film was the inspiration for my version of Dracula. Currently under development with Morgan.  Jess-O-Lantern returns to co-hosting duties after a 2 week vacation and we play some music from Twins of Evil the Lesbian Hammer Horror movie starring the late great Peter Cushing who appears in CGI in Rouge One A Star Wars Story.  And the soundtrack to SCREAM 1 and 2.
