We're really close to ending our "Top Ten Horror Soundtracks Spectacular" and it's now time to bring the noise, literally...
So, I'm willing to bet you all know and (maybe) love the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre; now a lot of peeps don't know the original soundtrack, done by director Tobe Hooper and William Bell, is forever lost.
As with the rest of the movie, a movie that ran into all sorts of trouble that ended up making it ever creepier, the soundtrack was accidentally burned, and there's no real way of extracting it from the movie as there's just THE track that contains both dialogue and music.
Funnily enough, there's no need to, the cover on this post is the bootleg cassette version Dutch Oven did by taping the whole VHS (with dialogues included,) some dude from a death metal band (I forgot their name, sorry) says he did the very same thing and used to play it in his car, he claims it's the best audiobook ever.
To be fair, it ain't so much incidental music, as it is experimental noise/concrete music, it very well may be THE creepiest soundtrack ever to grace the screen and it'd be higher if it wasn't such a pain in the butt to get, even if it's bootlegged (y'all can find it in YouTube too, without all the dialogue.)
So, here's my copy alongside some other kick ass horror soundtracks I own of tape:
