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.

Did You Catch Chucky and King Kong’s Cameo in the Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s New Movie?

Published

on

You may remember a few months back there was a kick-ass trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure flick Ready Player One that sported a quick glimpse of not only Freddy Krueger, but Stephen King’s Christine as well.

If those slick horror nods weren’t enough for you, today we have the new trailer for the film and guess who shows up? Yep, you guess it (from the headline) but Mr. Charles Lee Ray lends a helping knife to a battle, and the king of the jungle, Kong himself!

Very cool.

The cameos in the trailer is one of those “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” things, but let’s hope he has a bit more screentime in the actual movie. By the way, is Ready Player One reminding anyone else of the “Imagination Land” episode(s) of “South Park”…?

You can check out the trailer below and then make sure to let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernie Cline, and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen, and Letitia Wright.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.

Synopsis:

In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

on

Earlier today we let you know Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller Get Out scored nods at this year’s Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture and Best Actor – both in the Comedy category.

Strange.

Get Out Scores Golden Globe Nominations… as a Comedy

Published

on

It was a few weeks back now when we let you guys in on the rather puzzling news that the Golden Globes was considering Jordan Peele horror-thriller Get Out as a nominee…

As a comedy.

As strange as that news was, it seems it wasn’t a joke in its own right as Jordan Peele’s Get Out has scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The news broke this morning with the full release of this year’s nominations via EW.

You can check out the full list HERE.

One cool thing is that actor Daniel Kaluuya also scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – again, Musical or Comedy. Sad and borderline ridiculous that Peele didn’t score nods as director OR screenwriter. For shame, Golden Globes.

What do you think of this news? Are you just glad Get Out got SOME love from this year’s Gloden Globes, or could you care less about awards season? Let us know below!

Synopsis:
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship; but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
