Favorite Halloween scores - Day 5.

For many years, filmmakers have sought to combine horror with humor. Sometimes, the results are successful, while other times, they aren't.

These films fall into the second category:

3. Transylvania 6-5000 (Lee Holdridge) - Hard to believe that a fine cast and a writer/director acquainted with Mel Brooks could add up to nothing. Still, Holdridge provided some lovely music.

2. The Spirit is Willing (Vic Mizzy) - Another marvelous cast, bedeviled by a director not known for (or fluent in) comedy. Mizzy's score, though, is a light-hearted romp.

1. Lesbian Vampire Killers (Debbie Wiseman) - Full disclosure: I only know of this movie through a couple of reviews and, by those accounts, it's puerile, but one would never guess it from what I've heard of Wiseman's lush, exciting score.
