Edition of 400. "I Vampiri" (aka "The Devil's Commandment," 1957) co-directed by Riccardo Freda (as "Robert Hampton") and Mario Bava (uncredited) is Italy's first horror film of the sound era. According to certain sources, Mario Bava -- besides taking care of the cinematography, lighting and special effects, also completed both movies as director and his original touch is very evident in these works. The soundtrack composed by Maestro Roman Vlad (1919, Cernovtzy, Ukraine) is here for the first time ever on vinyl, re-mastered from the original tapes. Vlad has written a mostly monothematic symphonic score, particularly macabre and dramatic based on a main theme, a mysterious agitato given by violent glissè of French horns accompanied by a strings orchestra that often is reprised with variations in the score.
