Bobby Johnston is an American composer who has composed original scores for several films, including King of the Ants, Wristcutters: A Love Story and Edmond. This horror drama looks like a lot of fun, but the music ultimately disappoints simply because I don’t feel it, anything at all really. When I listen to the score I never feel scared, emotional or excited. Cues like ‘Cop’, ‘Pussy Patrol’ and others merely chugs along without any direction whatsoever and never gets going.

Conclusion

This wasn’t what I expected at all, and unfortunately I didn’t get what I wanted. This score could have had a lot going for it, but ultimately it is not even remotely interesting for me. If only… I kept saying to myself as I was listening to this. Oh well, at least the film seems interesting.

GEEK SCORE: 53.3

Buy the score at Amazon MP3 or iTunes.
