Mountaintop Motel (Ron Di Iulio Cover) by Everett Dudgeon (Prophet X)


"Mountaintop Motel Massacre is truly an underrated horror flick. It has elements of Psycho, Misery, and even some classic Old Dark House moments.

The score by Ron Di Iulio is minimalistic and creepy. I sounds like the score is completely synthesized and my guess is an ARP Odyssey or Minimoog was used with possibly some type of string machine.

I went with a bit more of an acoustic approach using the Prophet X. The main melody is sequenced with some samples of a music box and also some creepy children vocals "La" This gives a creepy childish innocence which perfectly represents the main character Evelyn. There some brooding filter sweeps behind everything symbolizing something evil lurking beneath the surface.

Then suddenly another female vocal starts doing another melody overtop which is soon joined by a Theremin-like synth.

All in all I'm quite proud of this one, as simple as it is.

Please check out Vinegar Syndrome's awesome release of the film
