Sam Raimi very apparently loves making horror films. Nearly three full decades after the release of his now-fan favorite Evil Dead, Raimi released Drag Me to Hell, a movie that exhibits the same fanboy zeal as his original. – Audiences Everywhere

If music is not triggering our imagination, it’s not living up to its fullest potential.
This is one particular attribute in which Christopher Young excels. He’s demonstrated this power throughout his entire career, composing tremendously tormenting scores for films like Hellraiser (1987), The Fly II (1989), The Grudge (2004), The Uninvited (2009) and Sinister (2012). However, in my book, nothing compares to the paralyzing nightmare of Young’s The Exorcism of Emily Rose. It’s certainly one of the more cacophonic scores ever written; however, the chaos is completely controlled by the composer. Young traverses the narrative of the film utilizing a precise balance of extreme dynamics and aural intensity in order to bring out the scarier elements of the visuals.
