Ha yeah some are quite similar aren't they? That one is a bit more experimental with the kinda phased voices, the other one is more simplistic. On that mix I did recently I put Nadine from The Serpent... it's way similar to that Pazuzu one from Exorcist 2 I put above. I guess he did literally hundreds of albums, we can forgive him a little self-referentiality

I watched this on Christmas Eve a few years ago expecting it to be complete bollocks and thought it was brilliant. The soundtrack alone was worth watching for.
It is brilliant, and the soundtrack is part of the brilliance.
