To score SUNDOWN, director Antony Hickox was looking for a composer who could provide a rousing orchestral score comparable to the work of Elmer Bernstein or Ennio Morricone from many classic Westerns. However he lacked the monetary resources to hire either of those two legendary composers. The trend in horror films at the time favored electronic scores over orchestral scores for this very reason but Hickox was determined to get the right score for his film. Choosing raw talent over name recognition, Hickox hired Richard Stone, a gregarious up-and-coming composer who was eager to demonstrate his eclectic orchestral style and flair for aggressive storytelling. Stone had already established himself as a music editor for several prestigious composers including Georges Delerue and Maurice Jarre. His earliest feature film composing credits included SUMMER HEAT, NORTH SHORE and PUMPKINHEAD, which he scored for renowned make-up wizard and first-time director Stan Winston. Backed by an elite team of orchestrators including Conrad Pope, Philip Giffin and Mark Watters, Stone's music for SUNDOWN: THE VAMPIRE IN RETREAT reflects a spirit and passion for cinema seldom expressed in low-budget filmmaking and usually discouraged. The final result is a large scale orchestral score sure to appeal to fans of great filmmusic.Previously released on compact disc in 1990 and out of print for many years, featuring music composed by Richard Stone and conducted by Allan Wilson, performed by the Graunke Symphony Orchestra, with remastered sound by Digital Outland. The booklet includes new liner notes by writer Brian Satterwhite on the filmÕs production and the creation of this exciting large scale orchestral score.
