Anyone seen the film? It sounds cool AF.
I like the film a lot - I found it back in the day when I was seeking anything directed by Czech emigre Ivan Passer, after seeing Cutter's Way and becoming sort of obsessed with it (great film+amazing score, check them out!)
Haunted Summer is essentially the more polite version of the same events depicted in Gothic- but without Ken Russell's wild X-rated trippy music-video excesses (winking eye nipples!!) and Thomas Dolby music. It's the 'Merchant Ivory' version of the Shelley/Byron/Frankenstein trip at Lake Geneva and very well made/acted - hella classy considering it's an 80s Cannon film! Need to see it again tbh, but Young's score is definitely a standout element (along with Alice Krige...) Whenever I spin the OST that main theme haunts me for days. I could only ever find it as a full frame transfer on dvd, which is annoying- no love shown to this little gem as of yet. If you're into such things, DM me and I can hook you up with a dig file :)
