Film score for Kiyoshi Kurosawa's horror film composed by Takefumi Haketa

Employing a string orchestra, harp, guitar, synthesizers and reverb-soaked soprano vocals, this music is very nearly as creepy, apocalyptic and depressing as the brilliant Kiyoshi Kurosawa film that it scores. Almost the entirety of this album's themes and flourishes consist of well-worn horror film clichés, but Haketa's approach to this material is so novel and presented with such conviction that it feels fresh anyhow, and can even induce a few chills when removed from the context of the movie's visuals.

Mostly known for his occasional anime and television scores, this is Haketa's only composition for a live-action feature. As it's fairly unpopular and quite short (over a minute shy of a half-hour), it's safe to assume that this score will never, ever be released outside of Japan. However, it is available on a variety of file-sharing networks if you're willing to conduct a patient search for it. Recommended for fans of horror film scores and especially Kurosawa's amazing motion pictures.
