Tangerine Dream - Strange Behavior OST LP (Neon Twist Vinyl)

Terror Vision

Soundtrack to 1981 horror film, “Strange Behavior” on vinyl for the first time ever!

Although it’s had a strong cult reputation since its initial release, Strange Behavior was the odd man out at the time: in 1981, horror movies were primarily of the stupid slasher variety. This film deserves better – it’s more of an homage to the all-American 1950s B movie. Future Oscar winner Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters) and director Michael Laughlin cooked up this kooky tale of a mad scientist programming small-town teens to kill. Laughlin’s long-take style gets under your skin, the Tangerine Dream score is unnerving, and the fact that the whole thing was shot in New Zealand adds a touch of the peculiar to the “Midwestern” landscape. At times the weird science seems to have infected everyone in town (a giddy choreographed dance at a teen party comes from nowhere), which just adds to the sense of general – you know – strange behavior. Condon and Laughlin followed with 1983’s Strange Invaders.
