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.

Splatterhouse

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.
