Catchy and disorienting in equal measure.  Love the squelchy sounds and awesome vocal manipulations.

Thanks! Most of the manipulations were actually done by the actor in the original movie, who seemed to be aiming for a Boris Karloff/Vincent Price persona.

I really like this, it's gentle and spikey at the same time. Excellent choice of archive samples too!

Delightfully confusing and...dare I say...infectious!  Great source selection and manipulations!

Kind of a processed/compressed sounding Primus on Prozac at the start and then the prozac really kicks in at the end.  big_smile  Wonderfully weird yet catchy at the same time.
