13 Sins
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Michael Wandmacher
Label: Screamworks Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 15 May 2014

ScreamWorks Records releases Michael Wandmacher's score for 13 Sins. The story follows Elliot Brindle who is drowning in debt before his wedding day when an anonymous phone call informs him that a hidden camera game show offers millions of dollars in exchange for completing 13 tasks. Elliot plays along and collects a few thousand bucks after the first tasks, but then he realizes that the bigger money is linked to more perverted challenges and he can’t just quit any time he wants...

Michael Wandmacher's score for 13 Sins ticks all the right boxes. It's adrenaline fuelled, it's spooky and it's certainly suspenseful. So for that alone it's worthy of your time... However, I couldn't work out why it just felt like Wandmacher was just going through the motions.

This is another score that's mainly atmospheric filler material; music that works best when heard in the movie (as intended). Listened to on its own merits the majority of the tracks fall a little flat.

This album contains 20 tracks (49 min) and probably works best as background music while you're playing a console game.
