“In 1990 Philip Glass was asked by director Bernard Rose to compose a score for his film Candyman. Rose, a young director had an intriguing film, Paperhouse to his credit and the Candyman story, (written by Clive Barker), was a tale of contemporary myth and horror that possessed a truly frightening psychological plot. Glass accepted this task and wrote a "gothic" score for chorus and pipe organ. Somewhere down the line the film's producers and Clive Barker became dissatisfied with Rose's work, probably because he wasn't creating enough overt gore and horror and relieved him of the job of finishing the film. ”

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
