there are plenty of soundtracks out there one can consider decent albums on their own, but these ain't them (imo).

give me some lalo schifrin, morricone as opposed to 30 minutes of mildly interesting synth textures.

yes i said it.
to each his own.

but it should be said, an overwhelming majority of those horror films were done very cheaply, so to compare Morricone to those composers is a logical non-starter.
