oh god, it was truly horrible. but cd store peeps and i were into the soundtrack so we went to see it. bad. bad. bad.

I was flipping through tv stations last night and did a "wtf, spawn?" when I went by whatever station it was on. The best/worst part is that it works pretty well as an indictment of how out of control comic book shit was in the early 90s.

a searing indictment of the whole corrupt system!

I like how committed Leguizamo is to playing a constipated clown in this movie.

Spawn OST vs Judgement Night OST

Ebert: As a visual experience, ``Spawn'' is unforgettable.

well I do agree with this.

El Tomboto, Friday, 20 July 2007 22:14 (fourteen years ago) link

I liked a few of the OST songs, the Prodigy/Morello one I was into when it came out. Clubs flogged "trip like I do" to death, oooh its about acid wooo arent we all crazy. Geez.

Mansun & 808 State - Skin Up Pin Up

I still rep for this track.

1899 Horsey Horseless (HI DERE), Monday, 8 June 2009 17:53 (twelve years ago) link

Marilyn Manson & Sneaker Pimps - Long Hard Road Out Of Hell

this one, too

1899 Horsey Horseless (HI DERE), Monday, 8 June 2009 17:54 (twelve years ago) link

I used to have that soundtrack too, but I later sold it to friend. Now I kinda regret it, because IIRC the Orbital/Hammett and Apollo 440/Morphine and Rollins/Goldie tunes were quite nice. The Prodigy/Morello tune was okay too, though I think there was better version of without Morello called "No Man Army". Or did I dream that one up?

Tuomas, Monday, 8 June 2009 19:06 (twelve years ago) link

i saw this in theaters at the age of 12

No, that existed and it was better.

one thing that does not hold up on this soundtrack is "For Whom The Bell Tolls (The Irony Of It All)" by Metallica & DJ Spooky

I came to this soundtrack thinking it would be as awesome as the Judgment Night soundtrack. I was sorely disappointed.

the Metallica track especially

``Spawn'' is best seen as an experimental art film. It walks and talks like a big budget horror film, heavy on special effects and pitched at the teenage audience, and maybe that's how it will be received. But it's more impressive if you ignore the genre and just look at what's on the screen. What we have here are creators in several different areas doing their best to push the envelope. The subject is simply an excuse for their art--just as it always is with serious artists.

ian, Wednesday, 9 June 2010 20:11 (eleven years ago) link

I saw this movie because the speed freaks that had been squatting in what became my studio had left a vhs tape of this behind when the fire department kicked them out. It was pretty horrible.

I had also forgotten that Atari Teenage Riot/Slayer might as well just be Atari Teenage Riot, lol

huh I remember Soul Coughing/Roni Size as an interminable slog but right now it's fantastic. (Let's see how I feel 2 minutes from now.)
