Vincent Gillioz is a new name for many. Vincent is a Swiss composer and he grew up playing guitar in rock, punk and metal bands. He met up with Christopher Young who was so impressed with his music that he recommended him for the Sundance Composers Lab. He is the composer of no less than 69 titles according to IMDB. Thanks to the great people at Howlin’ Wolf Records, this score has seen a release.
This psychological horror drama sure has a lot of tension as can be felt just by listening to the music. My favorite track is actually the opening track ‘Last Breath’ which sounds a bit like John Murphy’s adagio theme for Sunrise. A beautifully crafted theme. Most of the score is based on ambience and tension like the scary cue ‘Scars’ that lures you into an aural landscape where there seems to be no hope, just a horrific experience for the couple within the film. There’s a theme being played throughout on the piano in cues like ‘Mystery in the Shed’ that is quite a stark contrast to the more scary cues on the album.
The biggest problem this score has is that the cues generally go into each other without being remembered. The theme heard in ‘Mystery in the Shed’ amongst others is good, but not good enough to make me want to hum it. Still, the score has a lot going for it, specially if you like tension based ambient horror scores you might get a kick out of this.
GEEK SCORE: 73
