"The horror, the horror -- imagine your worst slasher nightmares transfered directly to the devil's disco dancefloor. A cross-section of the world's finest, dirty-electro zombie-worshippers bow down and deliver their own interpretations of soundtracks featured in their favourite 70's and 80's horror movies, all exclusively for the truly electrifried Device Electronic Entertainment label. Some movies will be instantly recognizable; the debt of the electro nu-school to the works of John Carpenter is oft-cited and fully in evidence here, others less so -- unless you collected all the banned 'video nasties' on the list, mid furor. Of course, these slightly more liberal times have seen most of these films passed uncut and in far wider circulation than their creators could ever have envisaged. Elements of this music have seeped into the mainstream, tainting flesh and consuming souls from within with its blank staring empty-eye sockets and decrepit imagery. From the true underground, directors such as Lucio Fulci, the most perverse purveyor of rotting flesh and popping eyeballs, and Dario Argento, laying on the stylish atmosphere and the frenzied stabbings, have inspired a creme de la creme of the current new wave of Italo-disco protagonists to new heights of unease."
