Netflix just dropped the trailer for The Ritual, the new horror film by David Bruckner (Southbound, V/H/S, The Signal)! We love a good horror soundtrack and especially one that draws on Ben Lovett’s ace synth skills. No stranger to delivering moody and foreboding scores (Ben delivered one of Lakeshore’s favorite releases of 2016, Synchronicity), we can expect to hear more of Lovett’s dark synth handiwork in this forthcoming album release. Check out the trailer below.
Pre-order The Album: [iTunes]

Cinematographer Andrew Shulkind and composer Ben Lovett worked with Bruckner to deliver an atmospheric, psychological thriller that builds to a fever pitch of a finale. – Jason Wilson, Under The Radar
The folks at Under The Radar recently caught up with composer Ben Lovett on his score to The Ritual, the new David Bruckner film which is currently playing in UK and Irish cinemas. Lovett, whom long-time readers of this blog will know him for his outstanding composition on 2016’s Synchronicity, also served as music editor on this latest project. “Together, they produced a score that uses sparse synthesizer in its bookending pieces while allowing acoustic instrumentation to accompany the story largely set in the barren wilderness.” We wait with anticipation for a US release. Read the full story at Under The Radar.
Starring Rafe Spall (The Big Short, Life of Pi), Robert James-Collier (Downton Abbey, Spike Island), Arsher Ali (Line of Duty, Four Lions) and Sam Troughton (Robin Hood, Alien vs. Predator) and directed by David Bruckner (V/H/S).
Entertainment One presents THE RITUAL, now playing in UK and Ireland cinemas (find tickets).
