In this edition of Throwback Thursday, we go down memory lane with director Greg McLean (The Belko Experiment) on his Wolf Creek 2 film. Lakeshore Records released the Wolf Creek 2 score in 2014 featuring Johnny Klimek. If you’ve seen Wolf Creek, then you’ll recall the relentless suspense and horror brought upon by the maniacal Mick Taylor (played by the fantastic John Jarratt) when an unsuspecting couple cross paths with him in the Australian Outback (stream the movie on Netflix). Wolf Creek was a huge hit in Australia, and after the Wolf Creek 2 film made its way through theaters, the TV series was spawned.
Here in the U.S., we are fortunate to see a new thriller directed by McLean in the form of THE BELKO EXPERIMENT, out in theaters March 17. You can pre-order The Belko Experiment score by Tyler Bates here. Have you been following Greg McLean’s films? Let us know in the comments below!

With every film he composes, Composer Timothy Williams (The Darkest Hour, Super, Doomsday) embues his music with the heart of the story. Lakeshore Records is excited to announce the release of Red Sky (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), with music by Timothy Williams. Williams is also the Orchestrator for Guardians of the Galaxy, scored by Composer Tyler Bates (The Darkest Hour, Super, Doomsday, Watchmen), opening this weekend. Red Sky (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) comes out on Tuesday, August 5th, but you can pre-order the album today.
Collaborating with Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Tyler Bates, Williams’ goal was to realize Bates’ musical objectives and Director James Gunn’s underlying message of an intergalactic “family” comprised of a rag-tag group of space-criminals with heart. The film has been described as a space opera — Marvel‘s answer to Star Wars. With all the high adventure, pageantry and epic destruction, the comparison is an easy one. With a team like Tyler Bates and Timothy Williams painting in the colors of the universe through the film score, expect the cosmos at your ears.
