Something Wicked
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Kyle Newmaster
Label: Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 01 April 2014

Lakeshore Records releases Kyle Newmaster's score for Something Wicked, a current day action thriller set in a mid-size American community in the Pacific Northwest. Christine and her boyfriend James have just graduated from Highland High School and are looking forward to enjoying their future together. Everything appears to be going well until Christine and James realise that she is being stalked by a psychologically tormented and obsessed young man, who in the end, will stop at nothing to be with her...

The score contains 23 tracks (30 min), but other than the opening and closing tracks ('Something Wicked' and 'The Evil Plan Unfolds') there's very little to get excited about. Technically it's faultless, and I'm sure in the movie it adds much need atmosphere. It's just that when listened to on its own it's rather flat. From a technical point of view it is interesting (there are some incredibly creepy segments) but emotionally it's not very noteworthy.
