Exclusive: Stream Two Tracks From Charlie Clouser’s Jigsaw Soundtrack

Published

on

In less than 10 days, Jigsaw will be hitting theaters, marking the return of the Saw franchise and possibly reigniting the series for a new set of films. To give you a taste of what’s to come, we’ve got two tracks from series composer Charlie Clouser to play for you.

The first, “Probable Cause”, is a brooding and hauntingly beautiful piece, gently pulsating with echoed bells and swooping pads. The second, “Tricycle”, is certainly a more suspenseful piece that includes the laughter of Billy the Puppet in the background. Were I a betting man, this would be music that I imagine will be used to reveal to people the nature of their circumstances. Oh yes, there will be screaming…

Speaking about the score, Clouser explains how he got some of the distinct sounds from a specific instrument called the “Que Lastas”. “There’s a builder of experimental musical instruments named Chas Smith that I’ve worked with since the first SAW film, although in the past I’ve always gone to his studio to record because most of his instruments are permanently installed and far too bulky to be moved,” Clouser explained.

He continues by adding, “When I was just beginning work on Jigsaw, Chas was preparing to move his studio for the first time in more than thirty years, and I was able to convince him to finally sell me one of the instruments that I’ve used on all of the SAW scores! This instrument, called Que Lastas, has a large sheet of stainless steel with piano strings and metal rods attached. It is played with a cello bow to create scary tones that are often dissonant but always ominous. It’s become an important part of my sonic palette for the SAW films, and I’m so happy to have been able to finally bring it home.

You can stream the two tracks below and, if you want to add some new Saw music to your Halloween playlist, you can pre-order Clouser’s Jigsaw soundtrack, which comes out October 27th through Lakeshore Records, via iTunes.

Jigsaw has been rated R for “grisly bloody violence and torture.” It comes out October 27th, just in time for Halloween!

Synopsis:
Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one man: John Kramer. But how can this be? The man known as Jigsaw has been dead for over a decade. Or has an apprentice picked up the mantle of Jigsaw, perhaps even someone inside the investigation?

Jamie Lee Curtis Says Blumhouse Halloween Will Make Us “Very Happy and VERY Scared”

Published

Bring. It. On.

It was only last week that we let you guys know that Jamie Lee Curtis had wrapped filming on Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

And today we have another Instagram post from the legendary scream queen where she not only shows us a creepy-ass painting of Michael Myers, but she lets us know that Blumhouse’s Halloween is going to make us all “very happy, and VERY scared.”

Hoo-ray!

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to just go ahead and trust Jamie Lee Curtis on this one. She’s been around the Halloween block more than a few times and I trust her judgment… other than Halloween: Resurrection.

You can check out her post below and then let us know how excited you are for Laurie Strode’s return!

Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer of the film as well as the composer.

The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.

Synopsis:

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Death House Theatrical Release Delayed One Week Due to Black Panther Success

Published

Death House

If you were excited to see Death House this week, you’re going to have to pump your brakes as the film’s theatrical release has been postponed one week due to the success of Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther.

Eric Pakrinson, C.E.O. of Hannover House, who is distributing Death House in theaters, states, “Obviously, we are very disappointed to find such pressure from the exhibitors to hold-over multiple screens for ‘Black Panther’ but we are happy for the success that this film is providing to theatre owners, and we know that the slight delay we are implementing for ‘Death House’ will ultimately pay big dividends for the film.”

The plan is to now launch Death House on Friday, March 2nd, with a special media event and public opening at the Regency Plant 16 in Van Nuys, California, where 20 cast members, along with additional crew, will be present. From there, the film will spread to other markets on March 9th and March 16th. If performances are strong, additional markets will be added following those dates.

This shift in release also pushes back the home video and digital release dates to July, although no official date has been locked.

Director Harrison Smith recorded a video asking the horror community to turn out in droves when the film hits their market. You can see it below.
