Continuing our ode to the Haunted House theme this week for Halloween Month, we present you David Bruckner’s The Night House! The film starring Rebecca Hall in a stand-out performance also features score by genre fan favorite, Ben Lovett. After you stream the film tonight on Digital, be sure to save/add the soundtrack to your carefully crafted playlist collection. Listen below.
Vampires and werewolves are de rigeur when it comes to Halloween movie nights, which is why we’re thrilled to pair up Jakob’s Wife (starring genre legend Barbara Crampton) and The Wolf of Snow Hollow (starring Jim Cummings and the late Robert Forster)! The scores by Tara Busch and Ben Lovett, respectively, are wicked and suspenseful. Check out our playlist below and get a taste of their sweet and rich sounds.
Right from the opening cue of “Amelia’s Walk,” Busch quickly transports listeners and audience members into a solemnly eerie yet gorgeous world of ethereal mood, with haunting piano and Busch’s ghostly vocals providing a skeleton of what’s to come. – The Film Scorer
Lovett looked to Herrmann for inspiration to complement the film that centers on a case of dead bodies popping up mysteriously. – Vehlinggo
Fans of Ben Lovett will be pleased his score to The Wolf of Snow Hollow has been released in time for Halloween!
