I was wondering how you found this because I regularly check Amazon by searching for "soundtrack" under both "Music" and "MP3" and still couldn't pull this up.
Good old Amazon filed the damn thing under "Classical."
THIS is why not having physical media in an actual store where you can look for things is so sad. If it weren't for someone posting it here, I'd have never known the score was available even as a download.
and just added fourth "hidden sample" since I just couldn't do without this one although it features murderous string motif heard also in Mommie Dearest (around the middle of that cue), here it is fully developed... hope you'll like those... I would of course like to include some others too, but since some of them were included on the official website it wasn't really necessary. Stunning score!
I just got back from the film. The score was mixed a bit low so I didn't really get a good taste for it. It was certainly not your usual Beltrami stuff but I wasn't really blown away either. Guess I'll have to listen to it again later to decide if I should buy it.
Incredible. Probably one of Beltrami´s best scores ever.
Glad you and others are enjoying it so much. It really does kick ass. That the score is of such high quality and pleases fans so much in the year that also brought Wolverine, WWZ, Snowpiercer...well, that's saying something!
"Sue Gets an Idea" is my favorite cue...so much going on, so evocative.
OK, this seems like another completely useless remake but with good director on board and some interesting casting choices and now great composer also joining the project, this should be interesting. The movie is coming in mid October 2013.
Just another collection of synth textures combined with an "orchestra", designed to give the PEOPLE of TODAY ......what they want.....
As for the movie-"Girls Don't Cry" director is helming this....
The deal is confirmed signed. Also Powell is fortunately taking a time off. There has been a plenty of posters (one also including Jodie Foster who was briefly in negotiations to play Carrie's mother, the role that went to Julianne Moore in the end). Not sure if any of them is actually official, since the movie is still 6+ months away from being released.
Jodie Foster would have been *perfect* if Margaret White had been a reformed *lesbian*.....due to her "encounter".....
I've been listening to the score on its own now since I couldn't judge it very well in the film. Damn theater had the music too quiet to hear most of the time. Though now I'm glad it was quiet. The guitar/synths used in the bigger cues do not really help the sound of the score.
Overall, it doesn't really pull me in with any of the thematic material and doesn't deviate enough from the usual horror score sound for me.
