“A haunting Will Bates score of plinking strings and chorales that deepens the moody atmosphere.” Washington Post

“There is never a wasted moment as everything gets darker and darker. The musical score by Will Bates meshes with the stark visuals of cinematographer Elisha Christian perfectly.” – The Wrap

“Will Bates delivers a fantastic score that has hints of Goblin’s work on “Suspiria” while doing enough new things to feel fresh, like a use of a choir, what sounds like a children’s song composed in hell, and even a horror version of “Shchedryk,” also known as “Carol of the Bells.” – Indiewire

“The score is brilliantly used. Instead of reinforcing the horrific and mysterious nature of the film, Will Bates’ (Dumb Money) score guides it. The music is creepy, eerie, and it invites you in. “ – Nerd Stash

“Will Bates’s score blasts loudly and purposefully” – Awards Watch

“Will Bates’ score for Immaculate calls to mind Goblin’s famous Moog synthesizer music for Suspiria” – The Daily Beast

“Will Bates’s musical scoring can be breath-taking at times” – The Cinema Spot
