At the devil’s door” is like a visit in a tight and dark tunnel which has lots of twists and turns. You never know what to expect. A few cues are constructed in a stop and go manner, they don’t flow naturally. The effect is very good. I love a score that surprises me, and I got a few of surprises listening to this one. –SoundtrackDreams.com
Lakeshore Records is pleased to release At The Devil’s Door Music By Ronen Landa. Composer Ronen Landa previously collaborated with the film’s director, Nicholas McCarthy on The Pact. “The score for At The Devil’s Door was blessed with the talents of musicians who worked with me to explore the darkest corners of their instruments,” described Landa. “I manipulated those recordings in the studio to craft unworldly sounds that became the foundation for the experience. I found inspiration for our demonic themes in the ancient music and languages of the Silk Road region, and more restrained melodic gestures provide the dramatic counterpoint.”
“Writer-director Nicholas McCarthy reveals he got the inspiration for At the Devil’s Door during a bizarre cab ride at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, where his previous terror tale, The Pact, was screening.
“When I was at Sundance, a cab picked me up to take me back to the condo that I was staying in,” explains the filmmaker. “The cab driver was this Chilean guy and he asked me what I was there for. I said, I’m here for this movie called The Pact.’ He said, ‘Is that about a pact with the Devil? I made pact with the Devil.’ So I said, to this complete stranger, ‘Tell me about that!’” Read the full story at Entertainment Weekly.

McCarthy surely knows how to play with our fears, using a combination of natural light, negative space and a brilliant soundtrack by Ronen Landa to toy with us, and drag us down into this never ending spiral. He reminds us that the Devil hides in small spaces, so be very aware of your surroundings. You never know where it may be hiding next. – Read the full story at IXdaily.com.
