Sample a Bit of the Score from Fetch

Published

on

One thing that can really make or break a horror film is the choice of music for its soundtrack, and no one is more aware of that than Fetch producer Theodore Loscalzo, who dropped us a line with a little behind-the-scenes info on the scoring process for the film along with a few clips of the types of music we can expect to hear in the finished product.

One of the things that makes Fetch special is the music that we have been so fortunate to include in the film, says Loscalzo. “One of the greatest challenges for any production is to find and have a score and music that supports and conveys the emotions that the director is working to create! Patrick Savage and Holeg Spies (official site here) are a unique composer-duo for film from Europe.

Patrick is a violin virtuoso and previous member of the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, who contributed to the score of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Harry Potter, and more. Holeg is an indie music guru and wrote tons of experimental music for prestigious contemporary art venues such the Centre Pompidou in Paris. He was sponsored in the 90’s in Japan by an ex-member of Juno Reactor (Matrix 2 and 3). The widely traveled composer/producer met director Takashi Miike in 2002 in Tokyo and created an audio-visual remix of his brilliant award-winning film Ichi the Killer. From there he decided to concentrate on film music, and his first hit was for the trailer of The Hitcher remake produced by Michael Bay.

Savage and Spies describe creating the score for Fetch as follows: “More than horror, Fetch is a drama, and we actually had to cover two different worlds. One, quite surreal, is ‘the barn’, a world for itself where humanity has disappeared, where love struggles with an everyday reality, where misery looks for hope and exit. Musically, there’s a deep contrast between these two worlds, and as film composers it is a fantastic opportunity to explore every kind of emotions and actions in one entire film. The result is a crossover of genres merging all together to guide the audience.

Loscalzo tells us he has also found an exceptional partner in Adam Wolf, Senior Creative Director of pigFACTORY Music. “Adam was fantastic to work with and found us a sound that fits the movie so well with UK pop noir starlet Gemma Ray. I feel like we were very lucky to be able to license her music; she has a very strong following in the UK, and her sound and voice were made for horror films! Doubters will be converted and convinced when Gemma and her band take the songs to an even heightened level of hypnotism and drama. She plays slide guitar not with a slide, but with a very intimidating ‘Psycho’-style knife. Check it out!

Adam and pigFACTORY were kind enough to provide a download for Dread Central readers of Gemma Ray’s “(You Got Me In A) Death Roll”. Click here or on the below photo of Gemma’s knife slide to listen.

Fetch is about a group of innocent Evangelical Christians that get caught up in a twisted story of betrayal, obsession, sex, and death that challenges the foundations of their faith as a result of what they experience. It was written by Trent (Deadgirl) Haaga; directed by C.M. Downs; and stars Ashlynn Yennie as Starlene Arbuckle, Shawn G. Smith as Punch, and newcomer Krystal Heib as Christina Jenkins.

Michael Bay Adapting Duke Nukem with John Cena in Talks For Lead Role

Published

on

I think we can all agree that this may very well be one of those times when we see an announcement and go, “Huh… That actually makes 100% sense and I’m completely behind it!”

It’s been announced that the classic FPS shooter series Duke Nukem is getting a film adaptation out of Paramount with Platinum Dunes, the company owned by Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller, producing the movie. As of now, there is no script but the plan is to have WWE superstar John Cena taking on the lead role. As of now, it’s still in early stages but this is actually very exciting news as this combination seems like a match made in heaven.

Just think about some of Bay’s films, like Transformers, Bad Boys, The Rock, The Island, etc… Now imagine that kind of gleeful explosive action as the backdrop for Cena to kick untold amounts of alien ass. For those who worry that Bay won’t go hard enough in terms of violence or offensive language, don’t forget that both Bad Boys films as well as Pain & Gain were rated R for very good reasons.

Duke Nukem was originally released back in 1991 in the self-titled game made by Apogee Software. The character has since been in multiple sequels, although there are only four titles to the main storyline, and spin-offs as well as appearing in cameos in other games such as Death Rally, Blood, Serious Sam 2, Balls of Steel and can be seen in the trailer for Ready Player One. Nukem’s last video game appearance was 2011’s Duke Nuke Forever, a game that went through countless delays only to be met with critical panning upon release.

Horror fans who have played Duke Nukem will recognize many of the character’s iconic one-liners as being lifted from several horror films. Quotes from They Live, Army of Darkness, Aliens, Predator, Jaws, Full Metal Jacket, Evil Dead 2, and many more. The references were littered throughout and many delighted in their homages. However, Bruce Campbell wasn’t a fan when asked about the game back in 1999. He told IGN, “…they’re rip-off artists. Let them get their own damn material. It’s called hiring a writer.” [Source].

That being said, how cool would it be if Campbell made an appearance in the film to put Cena’s Duke Nukem in his place should he use one of those quotes? Apart from being a treat for fans of the games, it’d be a great moment in a film that’s meant to be chock full of bravado, machismo, and strong chins!

Coming back to Platinum Dunes’ adaptation, we’ll be keeping a very close eye on this project! In the meanwhile, why not tell us your favorite Duke Nukem moment in the comments!
