Ep. 103 - Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe's 'Candyman'
Score Cue Snapshots! • Music, Thriller, Horror, 29-Sep-2021
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.
It is a masterful, beautiful film that is a must-see. Watch / rent it today: https://www.candymanmovie.com

We absolutely love John Krasinski's follow up to 2018's 'A Quiet Place', featuring score by the great Marco Beltrami. Krasinski was brilliant in his use of sound design, and combining that with Marco's wonderful score is a really special experience.

There are times when sound design, original composition, and classical music can go together perfectly. We saw this in a few of our previous snapshots 'Amadeus' and 'Immortal Beloved', but this 1996 biographical drama based on pianist David Helfgott also does this to near perfection.

Nothing compares to 'The Dark Knight'. The epic performances, 70mm film sequences, practical effects, and the incredible score is just a small portion of what makes it a nearly perfect film. Scored by Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, this snapshot is at the end of the movie, when Gordon tells...
