Get an Exclusive Preview of The Damned Soundtrack by Frederik WiedmannIFC Midnight, in association with Five 7 Media, is releasing The Damned in theaters on August 29th, but first, thanks to Lakeshore Records, the THE DAMNED – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is available today, August 19th!

From the Press Release:
Lakeshore Records will release the THE DAMNED – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on August 19, 2014. The album features original music by Frederik Wiedmann (Beware the Batman, Green Lantern: The Animated Series), who is a frequent collaborator of director Victor Garcia.

“I hope this soundtrack will keep you on the edge of your seat!” said Wiedmann.

“I met Freddie seven years ago for what was going to be our first movie together (Return to House on Haunted Hill) and ended up being the first of several collaborations,” said Garcia. “The amazing cues he’s accomplished and the organic way in which his score fits the pacing makes The Damned be, without a doubt, my favorite collaboration with Freddie so far.”

Born in Stuttgart, Germany, Frederik came to Los Angeles in 2004 to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a film composer. After a couple assistant positions, Wiedmann scored his first feature, Return to House on Haunted Hill for Dark Castle Entertainment, Warner Premier, in 2007. Since then he has written music for a wide variety of feature films such as Hostel: Part III (Sony) and The Hills Run Red (Dark Castle Entertainment, Warner Premier).

“In The Damned we follow a family as they deal with their hidden secrets while, at the same time, try to defeat an ancient evil,” described Garcia. “The only thing I can say about the amazing score Freddie created this time is that I thought that I had a very clear idea of what I wanted for it to sound like until the moment I listened to the first sample that he sent me.”

“Early on in the process, Victor and I discussed how we can create an environment for this film that has a distinct flavor and concept,” Wiedmann described. “Since most of the film takes place in Colombia, I suggested the use of South American woodwind instruments, used in an unconventional way, merely to evoke a sense of place, but in a subtle, not too obvious way.

The Damned, which also hit VOD on July 25th, tells the story of American David Reynolds (Peter Facinelli; Twilight movie series, “Nurse Jackie”), widowed from his Colombian-born wife, who flies to Bogota with his new fiancée (Sophia Myles; Underworld) to retrieve his rebellious teenage daughter, Jill (Nathalia Ramos; “Switched at Birth”). En route to the city of Medellin, a car accident leaves them stranded in a run-down isolated inn. When they discover the old innkeeper has locked a young girl in the basement, they are determined to set her free. In saving the young girl, they ultimately unleash an ancient evil that’s been waiting to wreak havoc on all that cross its path.

AHS 8 Will Be More Like ASYLUM and COVEN

Published

on

News has been steadily coming in regarding the upcoming 8th season of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series American Horror Story. It was just the other day that we let you guys know that Billie Lourd will be back for the new season, which begins shooting this June.

And today we have word via Deadline regarding just what the tone will be for this new season, rumored to be titled AHS: Radioactive.

It’s not necessarily as real and grounded as the past season,” Murphy said. “We’re sort of getting back to Asylum and Coven. That’s the tone of it.”

Personally, I really enjoyed the grounded tone of AHS: Cult and I think it helped rejuvenate the series. But then again, a return to the tone of perhaps the show’s most beloved season (AHS: Asylum) is just what the series needs in the long run.

Are you excited to hear AHS 8 will be going back to the tone of Asylum and Coven? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

AHS Season 8 stars Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Kathy Bates, and new cast member Joan Collins, who will play Peters’ grandmother. Murphy has revealed he’s interested in casting Anjelica Huston (The Addams Family) as well.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Coming To Nintendo Switch In Japan This Week

Published

on

Although it’s already been home to a vast number of horror titles, the Nintendo Switch will finally come into the possession of the crown jewel of horror video games, as Capcom have confirmed that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be heading to the system on May 24. In Japan, at least.

Because of the limitations of the Switch hardware compared to both the PS4 and the Xbox One, the Switch version of Resident Evil 7 will only be playable by being streamed directly from Capcom’s online servers onto the physical console. Meaning that after the initial 45MB download, you’ll need to have an internet connection and be permanently online in order for it to work, so even though the Switch is a portable console hybrid, you unfortunately won’t be able to play Resident Evil 7 on the move.

In Japan, the Switch version of Resident Evil 7 will be known as Biohazard 7 Resident Evil Cloud Version, and will be priced at 2,000 yen (around $18). Once purchased, you’ll have access to the game for 180 days. There’s currently no word if you’ll be able to pay for a renewal once that time is up, or even if the Switch version will be released outside Japan, but Capcom have clearly come up with an ingenious solution to releasing more powerful games on less powerful systems, so we’re curious to see if their strategy of streaming games onto consoles catches on.
