Who can question the genius of Jordan Peele? He has continued to re-define the horror genre, and the sequel to the 1992 film of the same name is nothing short of brilliant. The unique blend of social commentary with horror makes it one of the top films we've seen this year. The score, composed by Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (aka Lichens), combines synth, acoustic and electric guitars, and strings to create a melodic, audible dread. There is also a mix of children's voices in the background of the cue, highlighting the history of the Candyman tale as the gloomy city surroundings visually unfold in the opening credits.
