Vengeance is Mine
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Edwin Wendler
Label: Howlin’ Wolf Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 11 December 2015

Howlin’ Wolf Records release Edwin Wendler's score to I Spit on Your Grave III: Vengeance is Mine. Jennifer Hills is tormented by the brutal, sexual assault she endured years ago. She has changed identities and cities in order to start a new life. Following her therapist’s advice, she reluctantly joins a support group where she befriends a fellow group member. When her new friend’s murderer goes free and the tales of serial rapists haunt her, Jennifer hunts down the men responsible in order to do what the system won’t - make them pay for their crimes in the most horrific ways imaginable. Only this time, no jury may be able to save her...

To say I was pleasantly surprised by Edwin Wendler's score for I Spit on Your Grave III: Vengeance is Mine is a bit of an understatement. For the third movie in the franchise, I was expecting track after track of background atmospheric music. But Wendler delivers a score with a soul; with its own personality, and this helps to make it an album you can enjoy outside of the movie.

The LP contains 12 tracks (1 hr, 06 min, 37 sec), and while there is an element of background electronic music, these segments are wildly different to what you'll have heard in the past.

For some reason 'Vengeance (feat. Aeralie Brighton)' had a moment in it that reminded me of the theme tune from the James Bond movie From Russia with Love.

If you're a fan of electronic scores with a lot of substance, then you should check out Edwin Wendler's work here.
