Before a big battle, a character sings this song and a montage of the various characters plays as they prepare for battle. So that is the melody. The lyrics go like this:<br><br>High in the halls of the kings who are gone,<br>Jenny would dance with her ghosts; <br>The ones she had lost and the ones she had found<br>The ones who had loved her the most;<br>the ones who've been gone for so very long, she couldn't remember their names<br>they spun her around on the damp old stone<br>Spun away all her sorrow and pain.<br>And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.<br><br>They danced through the day and into the night<br>Through the snow that swept through the hall<br>From winter to summer and winter again<br>Till the walls did crumble and fall<br>And she never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave, never wanted to leave.<br>Hybrid, please update this list. Is it possible that you could include the alternate/album version of Main On Ends (AKA Taking A Stand)?
COMPLETE SCORES ARE AWESOMECareful, talking about complete scores or recording sessions can get your comment removed now.No more superhero film score for me, he said .... :DThe complete score is so amazing!! I saw on YouTube too.CD RELEASE????
PosiblyA surprise reference to be sure, but a welcome one.The same thing happened to me George@Michael Baker - I can’t be the only one who read that as Han Solo right?Yeah... Wait till CD 2 and I'm sure we'll get a much stronger idea of what's solo Hans in here.
@Edmund<br>I wonder if this is one of those situations where the material in film is derived heavily from the suites, with everyone either arranging it or adding elements onto it. Just guessing of course, I’m sure we’ll get a clear picture once the bonus stuff gets released.<br><br>And apparently there is about 16 hours of music “lying around”, going off of what Hans mentioned in the Vi-Control forums."heavily influenced" indeed :D <br>I really love Amity and I love how the theme appears in several other cues:<br>Reckless which features an epic/action rendition <br>Insertion = a short quote at the beginning <br>Coda = another call back to the theme<br><br>Been listening to the score since I saw the film. Love it. Eagerly waiting for CD2. I wonder if it includes an extended version of the last 2 minutes of Insertion - INCREDIBLE.I guess I should know better at this point but I'm still a little disappointed that there are no solo Hans cues. Although I suppose there could be some hidden inside the longer album tracks.Because it's heavily influenced by Henry Purcell, that's what Hans said :<br><br>"Dark Phoenix is all Henry Purcell... I felt the last few bars of “Dido’s Lament” with the endlessly descending line and the “Remember Me” perfect for the characters... less the tune, more the harmonic movement"Right. Hopefully the other missing stuff gets released on the 2nd CD though.

I recently saw both this movie and Friday the 13th (2009). And I have to say that Steve did a pretty good job with the music. Yes, I'm aware of the complaints and the whole "remakes suck" mentality. But still......I advice you to revisit these scores. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Speaking of horror scores.......I realized these days that it's been a while since we've heard a TRULY memorable and effective horror score. Or maybe it's just me and I've missed some really good ones...

Your thoughts on the matter, folks?


Hybrid Soldier2019-03-23 20:43:59
I'm a huuuuuuge fan of the Freddy character & movies, and I really liked this remake, it didn't deserve the reputation it has... Especially when you compare to Freddy 2 or 6... lol

Music is great, best horror score Steve did with Amityville. But I also liked his more ambient horrors like Texas Chainsaws or Friday the 13th or Hitcher. But I can understand he probably wanted to step out of that genre and not end up being the new Harry Manfredini typecast !


mpolonest123 2019-03-23 21:22:01
Steve really knocked it out of the park with “Nightmare”. I always appreciate horror scores that balance the use of themes with the more atonal music you normally get.

And the last horror score I remember loving was John Carpenter’s 2019 Halloween score. A great blend of old and new, especially for Carpenter fans like myself.


mpolonest123 2019-03-23 21:22:48
^ 2018 I mean


Hybrid Soldier2019-03-23 21:25:27
I really liked Gary Go's Friend Request from 2016 too.


Scorefan2019-03-23 21:52:38
Ummm @Hybrid, what do you think about Holly Amber Church. I listened two scores from her and they are really good scores.


superultramegaa2019-03-24 00:13:08
The music is good, definitely better than Amityville (which I never found scary or interesting). The overuse of the cello and ambient/atonal cues gets annoying at times, but unlike a lot of modern horror there is real substance here. A decent amount of themes (but not too many), some decent suspenseful ostinato bits, good use of children's choir, and good thematic development. I don't have any interest in Steve's ambient horror scores because I really dislike that type of music.

As for the remake it's really mixed for me. There are genuinely creepy visuals and ideas, but with often poor execution. My go-to example is there's a great dream sequence with "not-Johnny Depp" in the library with dream-like visuals such as Freddy turning around inhumanly quickly. But that final visual is accompanied by a jump-scare for no reason and completely kills the impact of it. If his turning was completely silent, it would have been much more terrifying.

Jackie Earle Haley did a really good job as Freddy, (especially in the alternate ending), and Rooney Mara executed the material she was given very well. But unfortunately the characters are bland, all fitting into the emo/hipster teenager stereotype and little else. It also doesn't help that much of the deleted and alternate scenes ended up being much more interesting than the final ones we were stuck with, (Hospital Opening, Dean's original death scenes, and Alternate Ending).


mpolonest123 2019-03-24 00:26:42
^ Have to agree with you there. It’s not a terrible film by any means, but given the concept it is surprisingly bland. There were so many opportunities to do something cool with the dream concept, but it felt to me like they played it “safe”. And yes, the characters are extremely forgettable. I will give credit to Jackie Earl Haley, he does a pretty good job with the material he is given.

And I just remembered 2 excellent horror scores from the past few years:
It and A Cure For Wellness by Benjamin Wallfisch.


Bayhem2019-03-24 18:04:23
It and A Cure For Wellness by Benjamin Wallfisch.
.....................

Well, I'll be goddamned! I totally forgot about 'A Cure For Wellness'. I absolutely loved the movie and yes, the score is truly great and memorable, especially the main theme. Wallfisch knocked it out of the park with that one.

It seems that every time Gore Verbinski makes a horror movie we're treated with a great score. First it was 'The Ring' - which IMO is one of the best horror scores ever - and more recently 'A Cure For Wellness'. Both very immersive, creepy and atmospheric scores. Exactly the type of horror scores that I love.

In "Freddy's Coming For You", around 1:56 the music starts getting weird like there's a hidden message played in reverse or something. I love that. That would be really awesome if it is, but I doubt it.
