Cinema's most iconic whistle...By the master of Film Music, composer Bernard Herrmann (‘PSYCHO’, ‘VERTIGO’, ‘TAXI DRIVER’, ‘CITIZEN KANE’, etc.) 

“Twisted Nerve’s most stand out feature was Bernard Herrmann’s magnificently creepy-catchy whistling score” - Quentin Tarantino” - October 2014 

A 1968 British psychological horror film from the Boulting Brothers, ‘Twisted Nerve’ starred Hywel Bennett, Hayley Mills and Billie Whitelaw. The film itself has little to offer, however its soundtrack remains one of Herrmann's finest and, alongside the film, would have probably languished in obscurity but for the intervention of Quentin Tarantino who revived its main whistle theme for his 2002 film ‘Kill Bill: Vol. 1’, bringing Herrmann's music to a whole new audience. At long last, the soundtrack to Elle Driver’s infamous hospital scene in ‘Kill Bill: Vol. 1’ and the inspiration for countless ringtones and samples the world over comes to record stores in 2015 - when ‘Twisted Nerve’ is released in a Super-Deluxe soundtrack package by Stylotone working closely with the composer’s family, The Bernard Herrmann Estate and with a little help from director Quentin Tarantino. The complete Original Motion Picture Soundtrack composed and conducted by Bernard Herrmann for the Boulting Brothers’ Production of ‘Twisted Nerve’ has been Assembled, Mastered and Cut at London’s world famous Abbey Road Studios to produce a stunning Master that is “enough to make even Hitchcock jump!”. The audio for this release has been overseen from start to finish by Grammy®-winning engineer Sean Magee, a member of the team that remastered The Beatles Catalogue in 2007 – he was also personally responsible for cutting their recent mono and stereo vinyl editions. Over 75 minutes of music – across three formats (Vinyl, CD & Download - Hi-Resolution & MP3) in two Super-Deluxe packages! 

Our super-deluxe package has been produced to the absolute highest possible standard as if it had been released at the same time as the film, having sourced manufacturers who are able to produce all the parts on exactly the same machines as used in the 1960s. The ‘Twisted Nerve’ Super-Deluxe soundtrack package will be available in two “blood-spattered” coloured vinyl editions - one yellow and one transparent - featuring spot laminated 320gsm tip-on gatefold sleeves.
