Ep. 181 - Christopher Young's 'Jennifer 8'
It's Halloween! • Crime, Drama, Mystery, 29-Aug-2022
There is a beauty to Christopher Young's music that you can't quite put your finger on. This 1992 thriller opened up with mixed reviews, but over the course of time we feel the film has aged well. Featuring Andy Garcia, Uma Thurman, and John Malkovich, the story follows a murder case that focuses on blind women. This opening sequence is a beautiful cue, and we think it is some of Young's best work.
