Director Bruce Robinson wanted composer Christopher Young to write the score for the film and the studio rejected him because of his lack of credits at that point. The studio then hired Maurice Jarre to write the music for the film who was their "lucky charm" after the success of films such as Ghost, Almost an Angel and School Ties and did not get along with Robinson, who felt that Jarre's music for the film did not fit what he was aiming for with the story. Young would be hired and after the first recording session, the studio backed off and agreed to the choice. See more »

"Jennifer 8" is an underrated movie of some of the greatest quality I have seen yet. Andy Garcia, Lance Henrikson, Uma Thurman, and John Malkovich all give extraordinary performances in a novel script that involves intriguing and very deep characters. The music mixes with the dark directing style perfectly to set the thriller atmosphere, and there is just enough action to make anyone happy. Behind the murders involved and the tense atmosphere, the movie also tells a romantic love story of a blind woman and a cop returning from the badlands. It is a movie that draws you in - and I'd recommend it to everyone.
