Horror Score of the Day - Juan Carlos Calderón / Vengeance of the Zombies

A couple of years ago, I ripped the cinelogue from an .avi version of this memorable and moody Spanish horror film—then editing down that file to include only the bits that featured music, so taken was I with Juan Carlos Calderón's score, a hodgepodge of grooviness that melds Piero Umiliani-like, jet-set pop with small-combo psych rock.

Juan Carlos Calderón - Vengeance of the Zombies Original Soundtrack (72MB; 256kbps)

Vengeance of the Zombies was the product of two giants of Spanish horror/fantasy, Jacinto Molina (known internationally as Paul Naschy) and director León Klimovsky, who did some of their finest work as a team.


  1. Hello!

    I am really sorry to bother you and to have come across your post of this fantastic score so late, but would you please be so kind to upload it again.

    I would be so grateful and happy to hear from you with a new download link which I hope I will not miss.

    Thank you very much in advance!

    The music to the film is indeed fantastic.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. The download link is viable again. ENJOY!

  3. Hello!


    Thanks a million!

    What an aural feast!

    The most amazing thing about your rip is that it stays true to the original priceless camp sound of those days' worn recordings.

    I have been wanting so bad to have an OST to one of those amazing Spanish horrors of the 1970s and here I have it after all with your great help. The Spaniards sound heavenly in their inimitable rhythmics with those wicked brass section workouts. And the break beat bass on this one is just so perfect.

    If only I could reward you somehow for this great gift. Any Italian OSTs of 1960s-80s you are perhaps looking for and cant find? I have many and could help out in case you need something.

    So, be aware, refer to me should you need something Italian. My e-mail is just in case.

    All the best!
