It’s always a great day when the number one film at the box office is a horror flick. And last weekend The Purge laid the smack down on its box office competition. If you want more from this film, the original motion picture soundtrack is now available.
From the Press Release
Back Lot Music is proud to release the soundtrack for The Purge, Universal Pictures’ speculative thriller starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey. The Purge Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features new music by Nathan Whitehead.
“Scoring The Purge was a fascinating and haunting exploration into what we value as a society and how far will we go in the name of greater social good,” Whitehead reflects. “Sonically, this was such a fun world to develop as I got to record and process a lot of strange sounds to create our own vocabulary for the score—everything from spring rattles and noisy toys to whooshing traffic and subway tunnels. Then working with this gritty, textural palette, I aimed to tell two main stories musically: Will we survive the night, and even if we do, what does this say about us as human beings? I found this combination of tense action and human drama to be so compelling, and it was really rewarding to express that musically.”

In an America wracked by crime, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity—including murder—is legal. The police can’t be called. Hospitals suspend help. It is one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment. On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking.
