Throwback Thursday: ‘Uncle John’ – The David Lynch-Approved Suspense Thriller


“I have to say that the minimalist droning score, courtesy of composers Adam Robl and Shawn Sutta, is both inspiring and a key element to this film,” -Marcus Pinn,

I like experimental. I like dark. I like this score. – Soundtrack Dreams

In this latest edition of Throwback Thursday, we take a look at Steven Piet’s David Lynch-approved Uncle John film.  If The Dark Knight were retired in the form of a somewhat sinister Uncle John, then John Ashton may have just nailed it.  The film features score by Adam Robl & Shawn Sutta (And The Wind Falls, Our Longest Drive), and you can preview or stream it below, out  now on Lakeshore Records.

Uncle John film is available now on Digital (rent it on iTunes).

Tantalizing, sublimely creepy and keeps you guessing even after the credits roll. –New York Times

Thanks to Ashton’s brilliant, career-defining performance, we’re made to see that the only thing worse than doing evil deeds is being nice enough to feel guilty about them. -Chuck Wilson, Village Voice
