According to the 2010 soundtrack release on the BSX label, previous pan-and-scan VHS releases replaced Lee Holdridge's score with a generic synth score in order to avoid paying royalties to the composer. The standard definition widescreen version streamed on Hulu in the early 2010s and the new high-definition 2016 release on region A Blu-ray both restored the original score. See more »
I never finished this picture so this may not be a completely fair evaluation. Seen on AMC it was introduced as a film made in the spirit of Tarentino and others like him where the film maker found his own extras and essentially financed it on a very limited budget. I watched only a half hour and kept dozing off. The actors mostly acted like they had never acted before. No emotion, no realism to what they did or said. And the score! I got so tired of hearing bass voices droning "Winterhawke" in the background that I had to mute it several times. Maybe it picks up further along and gets better. The lead lady was decent in her acting as was her little brother. Who knows, I don't expect to ever go back and find out. 1.5 stars out of 4
