Saturday Music for Exorcising Demons

THE FUTURIST! has never met THE EXORCIST!, but if he did he wonders if he would hear this music accompany his entrance into his home. The 1973 film has got to be one of the creepiest horror films ever made. The mood it creates is palatable and you actually feel you are seeing something real. Of course, heads turning completely around and bodies levitating is NOT real, but the mounting minutes of menace convince you it is real. The music was a distinctive element of the film and even became a hit selling record that reached the top of the pop charts. Now, hearing it again, THE FUTURIST! feels it's a bit of a rip on music he has heard in Dario Argento movies ... or ... is it the reverse? Anywho, does anyone know how to get spewed demonic green vomit stains out of a silk nectktie? If so send all answers to

Listen (from a safe place):

theme from the film THE EXORCIST (1973)

Classic bit of music. It really sets the tone for the film. Any other creepy theme songs you would recommend, Mr.F?



There have been a couple posted this SHOCKtober on Saturday Music posts. Do you have a favorite? One of THE FUTURIST!'s favorite themes is to ROSEMARY'S BABY.

I googled that email address and this blog was all that came up! It may be available.


Silly Dara:

That is the official THE FUTURIST! email address. Certain emails are sent to that address that concern the business of THE FUTURIST!
