AllMusic Review by

A straightforwardly spooky score to a journeyman horror series -- there are no particular surprises here. Staccato string figures mark the title music, swelling strings and moody minor key ideas make up the majority of the cues. Tongeren uses strings and string sounds for the most part, with few woodwinds or choral sounds in evidence, and cellos and basses being unusually present in the mix. The album closes with "Poltergeist Techno Legacy," a curiously jolly dance piece by Ryeland Allison.
