Ep. 107 - James Horner's 'Casper'
It's Halloween! • Comedy, Fantasy, Kids and Family, Music, 12-Oct-2021
"Casper" is one of those '90s gems that you can't quite forget. Directed by Brad Siberling (who also directed 'Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events'), 'Casper' was his directorial debut and featured the great James Horner at the helm to compose the score. Horner's composition is touching, fun, and iconic in so many ways - especially in the scene presented here.
All of us here at CineConcerts miss Horner each and every day, but we are so lucky to have such a beautiful repertoire of his music available to listen to. For this Halloween season, watch (or re-watch) 'Casper'. You won't regret it!

Did you know that was the only Dracula film to ever win Oscars? To us, this version of Dracula is our absolute favorite. Nothing tops Gary Oldman's version of this character and without question, Kilar's score is genius. From the costume design, Makeup, Art Direction, and Cinematography, the musi...
