Splatterhouse – Evil Cross and Nightmare

In the past, I have talked about how the schlock and gore of Splatterhouse appealed to my high school self.  This game had all of the components an awkward horror nerd required: a setting heavily influenced by monster movies, side-scrolling beat ‘em up fun, and an eerie soundtrack full of gothic riffs.


Composed by Katsuro Tajima and Yoshinori Kawamoto, the Splatterhouse soundtrack featured tracks with heavy metal titles like I Can Feel It in My Veins, I Will Find You, and Evil Cross and Nightmare.

Somewhere between horror movie track, heavy metal ballad, and baroque classic, Evil Cross and Nightmare is a fantastic song that takes much of its inspiration from Romantic composer Frédéric Chopin.
