ABOUT THE INVINCIBLE CZARS SCORE - this particular soundtrack performed live incorporates voice loops and is still the most understated effort by the band to date.  That band used themes from Eric Satie’s Gnossiennes 1, 3 and 5 as well as a complete arrangement of Debussy’s Footsteps in the Snow.  It was also one of the most collaborative efforts by the band featuring cues written by new bass player Hen3ry Q Vines, violinist Phil Davidson and voice/winds mistress Leila Henley.

Considered by many to be the first great American horror film, John S. Robertson's DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE allowed stage legend John Barrymore to deliver his first virtuoso performance on film. Blending historic charm with grim naturalism, this version of DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE is one of the more faithful of the many screen adaptations of Stevenson's story (though greatly influenced by T.R. Sullivan's popular stage treatment), recounting a visionary scientist's ill-fated attempts to unleash the human mysteries that dwell beneath the shell of the civilized self.
