Taking inspiration from both the past and the present, he combines contemporary scoring methods with period instrumentation, producing a sound which is truly one of a kind. Debney balances electronics with gypsy strings and the zither “giving [the score] a very edgy and contemporary sound while always grounding the music with period splashes of style.” –FilmMusicSite.com
Framed by a death-defying feat that has Houdini’s life flashing before him, Houdini quickly advertises all that will be revealed over the course of four hours (split into two parts). And reveal it does, taking an unorthodox approach that weaves in surreal and psychological elements, zooming camerawork, frenetic editing, a modern soundtrack and some well-placed animation to illustrate how Houdini’s tricks worked. –The Hollywood Reporter
