Tabs Out | OGRE and Dallas Campbell – All Hallows’ II

OGRE and Dallas Campbell – All Hallows’ II

I know this is going against protocol, but…


OGRE (aka Robin Ogden, not the one you’re thinking of) and Dallas Campbell are transatlantic buddies who just want to frighten the bejeezus out of each other. Fresh(ish) off their rescore of George A. Romero’s classic zombie flick “Night of the Living Dead” (Lakeshore Records, whoa!), the boys are back in town, virtually, through a secure internet connection. This time they’re cooking up a sequel to their hit “All Hallows” with another soundtrack to an imaginary thriller. And this one’s real nightmare fuel, check it:

“35 years ago investigative journalist Ellis Ledstone admitted himself as a patient to an alternative healthcare facility, The Shepard Institute For Psionic Inquiry. 6 months later, police would break down its doors to discover the remains of a dozen patients in The Institute’s basement.”

Oh snap! That sounds terrifying, in all the right ways. Not uncoincidentally, this is right up your alley if you’re a “Stranger Things” fan, as that soundtrack was also released on Lakeshore – Lakeshore is like a genre film soundtrack hall of fame! Delightful synthwork conjures fabulous moods, and you can pretty much imagine how the “film” “All Hallows’ II” is going to play out, just by listening. You thought John Carpenter knew how to cook up the heebie jeebies, make your skin crawl, but you won’t be disappointed with OGRE and Dallas Campbell, not even a little bit. Plus, we all know it’s better to celebrate Halloween in January anyway – it’s sneakier that way.
