5. The original orchestral/electronic score from Karel Kachyna’s 1976 Czech film adaptation of Hans C. Anderson’s ‘The Little Mermaid’, composed by Zdenek Liska
6. The soundtrack to the film Angelic Conversation was composed and performed by Coil, and it was released as an album of the same title. In 2008 Peter Christopherson of Coil (with David Tibet, Othon Mataragas and Ernesto Tomasini) performed a new live soundtrack to the movie during a special screening at the Turin Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.
The film’s music track also includes Benjamin Britten’s “Sea Interludes” from Peter Grimes, performed by The Chorus and Orchestra of The Royal Opera House Covent Garden, conducted by Colin Davies.

8. Thou & The Body have used for their cover for EP-length 12″ RELEASED FROM LOVE 2014 scene from Pasolini’s Theorem
9.10.Hermann Kopp (Stuttgart, Germany), formerly member of the Industrial electro band Keine Ahnung, is known for his soundtracks to Jörg Buttgereit’s groundbreaking horror films “Nekromantik” (1987), “Der Todesking” (1989) and “Nekromantik II” (1990).
11. Liquid Sky is an independent American science fiction film. It debuted at the Montreal Film festival in August 1982 and was well received at several film festivals thereafter. The film is seen as heavily influencing a club scene that emerged in the early 2000s in Brooklyn, Berlin and London called electroclash.
12. The album cover “The Queen is Dead”, designed by Morrissey, features Alain Delon from the 1964 film L’Insoumis.
13. Fore Hallowe’en Album from the Folklore Tapes , Snail Hunter’s Domnhuil Dhu track number 3. Snail Hunter’s track is essentially an imaginary soundscape, a programmatic piece whose effects are prompts for pictures projected onto an inner screen. An intitial descending sprinkle of notes sounds like an arpeggio stroked from an omnichord, the 80s electronic autoharp which resembled a plastic artist’s easel. It’s a landing, a fade-in, or the drawing apart of a cinema curtain. It’s also vaguely reminiscent of the glittering descending chords punctuating the soundtrack of the 1970 Czech film Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, which alert us to moments of magical transformation and protective enchantment.
14. The Man who fell the Earth / 1976/ The film maintains a strong cult following for its use of surreal imagery and its performances by David Bowie .
15. Velvet Underground chanteuse Nico and French avant-garde film director Philippe Garrel . A collage of dreams. Garrel made a name for himself with this film as a new Jean Vigo.
16. Clive Barker originally commissioned a soundtrack for Hellraiser from the industrial band Coil. The music they supplied was rejected, and Christopher Young provided a more traditional orchestral score for the finished movie. Coil’s score, which was apparently described by Barker in a complimentary manner as being “bowel churning”, has been released in isolation as The Unreleased Themes for Hellraiser and as part of the compilation Unnatural History II (CD) (1995). Coil’s original theme was later covered by the Italian black metal band Aborym on their debut album Kali Yuga Bizarre.
