Cool topic! but impossible to answer, there’s so many movies and so many variables.
Sometimes sound design and score are blended so effectively they’re indistinguishable, the excellent low budget horror picture “Dead Birds” a good example. Or better still, Robert Wise's 1963 masterpiece, "The Haunting". And sometimes score becomes sound design and/or multiple composers are heard, such as Kubrick’s “The Shining”. Some favorites are punk, some are pop and some are public domain library stuff, like the original 1968 “Night of the Living Dead”. And some manage to be quite good even when it's obvious the composer nicked somebody else’s work. “That was an homage” being the contemporary filmmakers refrain. The startling orchestration techniques of early to mid 20th century avant-garde composers tend to be “homaged” the most these days yet it’s very rarely admitted or even discussed.
Other favorites include...
Elmer Bernstein's "To Kill A Mockingbird" (1962)
Paul Giovanni’s “The Wicker Man” (1972)
Bernard Herrmann’s "Mysterious Island” (1961) and “Taxi Driver”
Ennio Morricone’s “The Thing” (1982)
John Lurie’s "Stranger Than Paradise" and “Down By Law”
Bruno Coulais' "Himalaya" (2000)
Troy Sterling Nies’ “The Whisperer in Darkness”
Wojciech Kilar’s “The Ninth Gate”
James Bernard's "The Devil Rides Out"
Lots more :)

Did you see “Easy Rider” at the Regal? oooo, naughty! :o
I saw it at my local cinema too, and though we were “under-age”, the good folks in the box office must’ve looked at me and thought, “This poor wee kid rode his bike dozens of miles, just to see this rubbish? He earned his ticket already, we’re ashamed to charge him a slim dime!” That was key: peddling a bicycle 20 km to the cinema, stumble towards the box office, sweaty and grimacing to politely request, “One ticket please.” They never asked my age.
Favorite cut from that soundtrack, Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild" 8)

I watched “Phantasm” (1979) again last night and right you are, the sound design is surprisingly good, considering how few instruments are heard. And....ghod I’m so thick....I only just realized, Angus Scrimm as “the tall man”, is doing an Albert Steptoe impression. Chin out, scowl and squint, presto: Albert!
A meter taller maybe, but it’s still Albert :wink:

Yeah got the dvd box set of Phantasm and soundtrack is amazing as is Halloween & The Fog listed, what's even more epic is that there's another Phantasm movie just made after all these years too of wishing called Phantasm 5 Ravager with all the original cast including Angus Scrimm mentioned as the tallman. Looks brilliant too. 8)

(p/s) Oh yeah lol, Angus does look similar to Albert with his chinny scowl. Won't be able to watch the film again without him saying " Harold, where's my bread n butter" in my mind now. :lol:
