As evidenced in the recent weekend box office figures (there are indeed a handful of theaters still open across the country), not even a pandemic has prevented film fans from watching Swallow, the latest IFC Films release that is getting lots of buzz for not only its subject matter and direction (helmed by Carlo Mirabella-Davis), but also the score by Nathan Halpern! Featured in the No. 2 spot on IndieWire’s “20 Best Movies Eligible For The 2021 Oscars” list, Swallow is in good company with their shortlist of films which have or had plans to make a theatrical run. See the full list at Indiewire.

Will Bates’ score is a haunting blend of electronics and real world noises. The creature design on Adam is simply superb. – The Hollywood News
Lakeshore Records has released Will Bates‘ score to Depraved, Larry Fessenden’s (We Are Still Here, Darling, The ABC’s of Death) modern take on the Mary Shelley classic, Frankenstein.

This is a stylish film, a single-set thriller that uses color, framing and sound to draw out the dread of captivity. The basement glows with diabolical scarlets, and Steve’s hostage speaks with a surprisingly soft voice that reverberates as if his vocal cords were made of metal. – Two Bugbee, New York Times
Director Josh Lobo brings the “anxiety, panic and possibly Satan” to his stylish new thriller, I Trapped The Devil. Fans of film composer Ben Lovett will have a devilishly good time seeing a Synchronicity and The Signal mini-reunion of sorts with Scott Poythress and AJ Bowen on the cast list. Film also stars Susan Burke (Southbound), Jocelin Donahue (Insidious: Chapter 2) and Chris Sullivan (“This Is Us”). As mentioned in our previous announcement, Ben Lovett’s score comes to all digital music services including Spotify and Bandcamp!
