AllMusic Review by

Legendary Horror Films collects 15 of the classic Universal horror film themes and delivers them on one CD. From the original Dracula's use of Tchaikovsky to the brilliant themes from in-studio composer Max Steiner, the entire album is filled with either recognizable themes or surprisingly unfamiliar orchestral pieces. With an emphasis on quality compositions and a relatively clear sound (considering the source material,) Legendary Horror Films is a great collection for the casual horror fan.
