When synth retro is all the rage in today’s scoring scene with the likes of STRANGER THINGS and IT FOLLOWS, Paul Haslinger can count himself as one of the O.G. genre gangsters whose exciting music for creatures, gunplay and kick-ass heroes has never stopped mutating. An Austrian bandmate in the seminal progressive synth-rock group Tangerine Dream during such seminal soundtrack likes as NEAR DARK and MIRACLE MILE, Haslinger immigrated to Hollywood with a prolifically successful scoring career. He’d venture from the cool, teen-centric electronic grooves of such scores as CHEATERS, CRAZY / BEAUTIFUL and BLUE CRUSH to a career-making partnership with the vampiric Lycan slayer Selene on […]Read On »

Margaret Atwood’s novel THE HANDMAID’S TALE has been considered a classic of dystopian fiction since it was first published in 1985.

Madness and the curse of centuries-old grotesqueries have rarely been as elegantly conveyed as A CURE FOR WELLNESS, an auspicious entry into the time-honored genre of the sane man trapped in an insane asylum – or in this case a Swiss Alps spa seemingly dedicated to the spiritual, and physical health of its decrepit well-healed clientele. Much like a funeral director with obsessive detail to make an unholy mess spic and span, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and RING director Gore Verbinski has ensured that his institute resounds with old world, aristocratic class, all the better to hide the demonic suffering its delightfully […]Read On »
