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.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

Published

on

As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which is why I’m looking forward to Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and if you are too, check out the film’s new trailer and poster.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, and Mel Brooks.

Look for it in theaters on July 13, 2018.

Synopsis:
In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

Published

on

The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.
