Last week Movies on the Radio brought you an hour of Italian film music, displaying the characteristically extravagant imagination heard in various styles of film, from dramas to comedies to Spaghetti Westerns.

Now, as Halloween approaches, David Garland presents some exquisitely spooky music culled from many Italian mystery and horror movie scores--further proof that Italian composers have a knack for wild, colorful soundtracks. Featured composers include Ennio Morricone, Claudio Gizzi, Stelvio Cipriani, Pino Donaggio, Goblin, Bruno Nicolai, Berto Pisano, and others.
