Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composers: Ade Fenton and Tim Slade
Label: Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 24 November 2017

Lakeshore Records release the original score to Nails. The movie follows Dana who awakens in hospital, paralysed and imprisoned in her own body. Whilst struggling to regain control of her life, Dana is confronted with a vindictive spirit; a terrifying presence called Nails, whom she is convinced exists inside her hospital room. Faced with scepticism from her husband, doctors and the staff, and believed to be suffering from a mental breakdown, Dana is left struggling to keep her grip on reality as the targeted attacks grow increasingly violent. To save her marriage and her life, Dana must find a way to convince her family that Nails is real before he succeeds in destroying her and everyone who stands in his way...

Sadly Ade Fenton and Tim Slade's score for Nails, probably not surprisingly, is another horror score that relies on too many atmospheric music cues that go nowhere. No doubt perfect for the scenes they are scored for, but they sound a little uninteresting when listened to in isolation (which they were never intended to be).

If you're a collector of this style of cliched genre score you may find something of interest. Personally, out of the album's 29 tracks (1 hr, 9 min, 19 sec) I only really enjoyed the song 'Air Raid'. This is one score best heard in the film.
