Next Tuesday, David Robert Mitchell's It Follows comes out on Blu-ray from Anchor Bay Entertainment, RADiUS, and Dimension, and we caught up with composer Richard Vreeland, aka Disasterpeace, to discuss his superb score for the horror film.
I understand that writer/director David Robert Mitchell asked you to compose the music for It Follows after he played the 2012 video game Fez, which you also scored. How did he reach out to you and what were your initial thoughts about being offered to score a horror film?
Disasterpeace: David reached out by e-mail. I had a lot of thoughts! I had never scored a feature before, so I was excited about the opportunity, but also wanted to be really discerning before making such a big decision. It was tough to make a decision just based on the script, especially for something as unusual as It Follows' premise, but seeing »

What is it about Hamilton makes kids want to kill themselves?
If a movie is crisp and well-lit, I'll forgive it almost anything. Innocence (2014) is a perfect example. Beckett (Sophie Curtis) is dealing with the sudden death of her mother. She's moved into New York City and starting up at a new school, Hamilton, which is inexplicably run by a group of handsome, young women. Handsome, young, creepy women. Chief creep among them is the nurse, Pamela (Kelly Reilly), who doles out the meds and slowly takes the role of Beckett's mother figure, including dating her widowed father. But a series of suicides and persistent hallucination makes Beckett suspicious of just what's going on at Hamilton exactly. I'm not sure if Beckett isn't too oblivious or lethargic to go Nancy Drewing around New York City.
