MARTIN is one of the great unsung horror films of the 1970s and easily one of George A. Romero's best works. John Amplas brings this remarkable humanity to a character that is a vampire and is depicted in a much different way than you've come to expect from a movie like this. The whole thing functions as more of an art film than straight horror - which is part of what makes it so memorable and has helped build a cult audience over time. That uniqueness is also backed up by Donald Rubinstein's excellent score to the film which is a mix of lonely piano and some strings as well as one more freeform jazzy track or two. The overall tone is a haunting and melancholy one. There is an unsettling nature to some of the music too. It has a dissonance in parts and an eerie female vocal that is both lovely and unnerving at the same time. It's a nice listen and a nice release from Ship to Shore. They've also included some liner notes from Rubinstein himself in which he touches on his memories of composing the score and his musical influences at the time.
Here is a humorus 10-minute loop of "Torgo's Theme".
