When a Stranger Calls was Dana Kaproff's second film score – his first was for Bert I. Gordon's Empire of the Ants (released by Kritzerland) – and Kaproff deserves a good deal of the credit for the film's suspense level. It is simply unthinkable to imagine this film without his score because his score is as much a leading player as any of its cast. It's relentlessly suspenseful music – there are no pretty themes to lull you and give you security – just dread, pure dread, and then almost psychotic music for those moments when things, well, get out of hand. The score is written for strings, prepared piano, and percussion. It is a superb genre score and a classic.
This is the world premiere release of the soundtrack to When a Stranger Calls. The film, of course, was mono, as is this recording, taken from the original session tapes. We present every note of music Kaproff wrote, in film order, as that's the way it plays best – like a symphony of dread and terror.
When a Stranger Calls is limited to 1000 copies only.
