Comments
The sixth disc in the SFX Champion box set, which focuses solely on Michio Yamamoto's Bloodthirsty trilogy that was conducted by Riichiro Manabe. This CD contains the complete scores to the first two entries in the series and roughly half the score of the third, which spills over into the seventh disc. The first film featured is the 1970 Vampire Doll, which is also the shortest of the scores at only 23 minutes. Sadly, the music for this movie is fairly forgettable, as it tended to sift into the background during the feature and director Yamamoto relied on a lot of silence to heighten the mood. Looking at the cue numbers, it would appear that there was an unused theme still left for this film, although it's not present as the only extra is the haunting "sound effect" of the wailing voice. Thankfully, the second score, which is nearly twice as long as the first, fairs much better, and I would go as far to say as it was a career high for composer Manabe. The main title in particular is nice, as are the three themes leading up to it. Surprisingly, the score in general works fairly well as a stand alone experience, as Manabe just seemed to hit his marks for this one, which is even more shocking given that it appears that very few alternate takes were done. Granted, like any Manabe score there are some duds, like "Natsuko's Revival" which has that familiar "frog croaking" type of sound, but in general it's surprisingly solid given his other work. Unfortunately, the same could not be said of his Evil of Dracula score, which rounds out the disc. To Manabe's credit, his work for this film tends to start off strong for the first couple of cues, but beyond this there isn't much to tout, although the worst of the score is to be found on the next disc with the remainder of the cues.
