For the Saw films follower, Jigsaw was a long-awaited eighth installment of this successful horror movie franchise! Now available on iTunes Movies this week, this is a welcome offering for horror film devotees to kick off the new year strong. Returning as composer is Charlie Clouser, who also scored the first seven films. Expect to hear some familiar sounds while being blown away by the new score (out now on Lakeshore Records).
Man, I missed these two word cue titles and the anticipation before the new Zepp theme comes. Welcome back, seductive darkness and screeching sounds coupled with ambient melodies, this is the sound that Charlie Clouser has developed so well over 7 years and he cleverly opens “Chase Edgar” with a familiar motif before taking the rug from under my feet and going full frantic action. – Soundtrack Dreams
A mostly swift and lively ride as the tables turn — and turn again — in some absurdly clever ways. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in action with Taran Killam’s slapstick caper, Killing Gunther! As “Gunther,” “The Arnold” is the ultimate contract killer, and young assassins are after him. Released today on blu-ray and DVD, who can resist a good Schwarzenegger film? Featuring score by Dino Meneghin (MTV’s “Teen Wolf” and “Eye Candy”), the soundtrack is out now via Lakeshore Records.
In the middle of all the wince-inducing, limb-bending, bone-crunching, face-exploding bloodshed, Vaughn turns in a legitimately great performance that ranks among the finest work he’s ever done. – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
You’ll never see Vince Vaughn the same away again after seeing his critically-acclaimed performance as “Buddy” in Brawl In Cell Block 99, directed by S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk). A New York Times Critics’ Pick and No. 1 Film on iTunes Movies, this film is a solid add to your DVD collection. And with a soundtrack featuring songs penned by the director himself and his Bone Tomahawk score partner, Jeff Herriott, the soulful tracks and ’70s vibes round out the Grindhouse feel of this indie masterpiece.
The compilation has just ten songs, but all of them play an integral part in pushing the movie’s stalker narrative forward. After all, how can you cover millennial angst on screen without a little dance pop? The soundtrack is an eclectic mix of genres that range from the aforementioned dance pop to new wave and even all the way to 70’s soul. Also, if you’ve seen the film, you know just how important K-Ci & Jojo’s ‘90s ballad “All My Life” is to the tone of the film. – Jordan Ruimy, The Playlist
Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen star in the outrageous comedy that shines a light on social media addiction. Featuring music by Animotion and the all too appropriate track “Obsession”, K-Ci & Jojo’s karaoke anthem, “All My Life” and more, you’ll likely be singing these songs in your car with your squad in tow.
