10 Cloverfield Lane
Music from the Motion Picture


Composer: Bear McCreary
Label: Sparks & Shadows
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 11 March 2016

Sparks & Shadows releases the soundtrack for 10 Cloverfield Lane, featuring music by Bear McCreary. The film is the ‘spiritual successor’ to 2008’s Cloverfield, the beloved science fiction/monster horror film. A young woman wakes up after a terrible accident to find that she's locked in a cellar with a doomsday prepper, who insists that he saved her life and that the world outside is uninhabitable following an apocalyptic catastrophe...

Bear McCreary turns in some beautiful and creepy themes with his score for 10 Cloverfield Lane. It's atmospheric, but without being cliched. The main theme is over used a little, but it's such an impressive piece of music that it's always welcome when it appears throughout the score.

Of this album's 14 tracks (1 hr, 03 min, 33 sec), personal highlights include 'Two Stories'; 'Hazmat Suit' (which borders on superhero movie territory); 'A Happy Family'; 'The New Michelle'; and '10 Cloverfield Lane'

Another gripping collection of themes from McCreary and while it's not an essential purchase, there are enough themes here to make it worth seeking out.
