How are the scores calculated and what does it mean?

From the director of The Pact, Nicholas McCarthy, comes At The Devil’s Door or “Home” as it is called in some markets. I really enjoyed The Pact and the score by Ronen Landa was terrifying which is why I became very happy when I got this score also by Ronen Landa. You don’t know it yet, but when you listen to the opening cue ‘Leigh (Theme From ‘At The Devil’s Door’)’ you are suspecting a melodic horror experience, but then you get to the second cue ‘So He Knows Your Name’ and you get chills by the fear that cue is inserting inside you. By the third cue ‘Sisters’, the body temperature just became seriously low.

I was expecting it to be scary, at least as scary at “The Pact”, but this is almost too much. I felt totally uncomfortable listening to this. I was constantly on the edge of my seat, turning around, feeling the presence of something in the house. I don’t know why I’m drawn to horror and that feeling I get when I listen to something terrifying. Why do I put myself through this torture of the mind? I really don’t know, but there’s a darkness inside me where I enjoy this more than I should. This is more like what Japanese horror composers are doing and doing so well. This might just be one of the scariest horror scores I have heard in my life.
