Here's an anomaly. The wicked-stepmother horror movie The Uninvited, directed by the Guard Brothers (that's Charlie Guard and Tom Guard), opened in late January 2009 to dismissive reviews and poor box office, suggesting it was just another cheap exploitation picture. But, as demonstrated on this album, the score, by Hollywood A-lister Christopher Young, is not the sort of Pro Tools, made-in-the-computer toss-off that might have been expected, but instead a fully realized set of cues played by an 80-piece orchestra full of first-call Hollywood musicians. True, four people are named as "synth programmers" in the credits, and periodically the music gives way to the typical sudden cataclysms of what sound like swarms of electronic insects or large pieces of machinery crashing into each other, providing the fear factors in tracks with titles like "Bloody Milk," "A Christmas Corpse," and "Terror on the Water." But much of the time, Young provides highly orchestrated string and piano themes that lift The Uninvited — as a score, anyway — out of the ranks of B horror movies and into something approaching masters like Bernard Herrmann. Maybe there was an original intention to make The Uninvited something more than it turned out to be, such that somebody decided on an unusually big budget for the music. Whatever the reason, this soundtrack is much better than the film it accompanies would seem to deserve.
They have the soundtrack....but what about the movie?!
I am a really big horror movie fan, but I also love mysteries. This motion picture was both. I tried renting it at block buster and they were ALWAYS out! Well I saw it. I love the music, but most of all I love the movie. I wish iTunes would put the movie up on they're movies section so I could buy it. I bought a gift card for myself just so I could get the movie on my iPhone, I come to iTunes and they don't have it?! I'll just hold onto my money and wait till they put it up on iTunes. Please iTunes....
Christopher Young has always been one of my favorite horror score composers. His other works are quite incredbile too, but besides the fact that I was already anticipating on seeing this movie and that I do like horror movie scores, I had to give this one a listen to. And it definitely is one of my new favorites. Every track is unique and chilling, some ranging all the way from haunting (The Screaming Bell and I'm at a Party) to quite beautiful (Glass Act- one of my personal favorites on the album). I can already tell by the music, that the movie is going to be good. Give this one a listen to. The Uninvited- 5/5 Twice Told Tales- 4/5 I'm at a Party- 5/5. Chilling. Glass Act 5/5. Incredible ! Bloody Milk- 5/5 Corpse Christmas- 5/5 Pairs In Love- 4/5 Terror On The Water- 5/5 Twin Nightmares- 5/5 Cry of Love- 5/5 Working Dreams- 5/5 The Screaming Bell- 5/5 What Have You Done?- 4/5 A Dance With No One- 5/5 Tale Of Two Sisters- 5/5 You got the picture. If I'm rating mostly every song 5 stars, it must be good. Overall Grade- A- Kudos to you Christopher Young.
Great Movie- Great Soundtrack
This music has such an ambition to it. It really makes the movie so mysterious! He is a great horror music-writer, and i would love to see more movies with his composition included.
