The Guest 2 Original Soundtrack is a soundtrack to an imagined sequel—a film that does not exist. 2014’s The Guest, directed by Adam Wingard, written by Simon Barrett, and starring Dan Stevens as “David,” tells the story of a kind soldier who befriends a grieving family. After a series of mysterious deaths, the teen family members discover the soldier who seems so warm and caring is actually an unstoppable killing machine. For the imagined sequel, Wingard sketched-out story details and enlisted 11 bands to tell the story through the medium of music. Through a wide range of song styles and tones—coupled with very specific song titles and a stunning album cover illustration—we learn what became of David, Anna, Brendan and Major Carver after the events of The Guest. View full album details below.

Lakeshore Records has released The Rise of the Synths (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), available now digitally worldwide! The album features the documentary’s score by OGRE Sound (Robin Ogden). If this album sounds familiar, Lakeshore previously released the Official Companion Album, which featured tracks by some of the synthwave and retrowave scene’s most recognizable names. See below for the score’s listening links and more.
Directed by Ivan Castell, the documentary is a “fascinating, witty trip through time” (Slash Film); and by the way, it’s narrated by John Carpenter, who is the inspiration behind the music of so many bands featured in the film and beyond.
The DVD/Blu-ray is on sale now at The Rise of the Synths online.
