WITCHED ON SOUNDS

Music inspired by "the scariest movie ever made" (according to many scaredy-cat Americans) hits in September...

Bauhaus, PiL and Skinny Puppy add an appropriately ’80s industrial goth feel to the music “inspired by” massive US horror film The Blair Witch Project.

Made on a budget of around $30,000, The Blair Witch Project – which opens in the UK on October 29 – has already taken millions at the box office and looks set to establish itself as a perennial and much imitated horror classic. The story is told as a documentary, supposedly put together from video and film footage shot by three Maryland students doing a movie about the legend of a local witch. After getting lost in the woods and being horribly slaughtered, the cannisters of film are found years later.

Although there is no music in the film itself, the album was compiled as a mix tape in the posession of one of the film’s characters.

The full tracklisting for ‘Josh’s Blair Witch Tape’ – released in September in the UK – is as follows

Lydia Lunch – ‘Gloomy Sunday’ Public Image Ltd. – ‘The Order Of Death’ Skinny Puppy – ‘Draining Faces’ Bauhaus – ‘Kingdom’s Coming’ The Creatures – ‘Don’t Go To Sleep Without Me’ Laibach – ‘God is God’ Afghan Whigs – ‘Beware’ Front Line Assembly – ‘Laughing Pain’ Type O Negative – ‘Haunted’ Meat Beat Manifesto – ‘She’s Unreal’ Tones on Tail – ‘Movement of Fear’ Antonio Cora – ‘The Cellar’
