Mike Patton of Faith No More and Dead Cross fame has scored the Stephen King sourced thriller, 1922, which is available now via Netflix. A press release tells us that an expanded score will be released via Ipecac Recordings in 2018.
The 1922 offering follows-up Patton’s critically-acclaimed score to The Place Beyond The Pines, a musical outing that Pitchfork said served as “the glue uniting the film’s three disparate sections and many different tones” and Movie Music UK said Patton offered an “intelligent way of arranging his collages of sounds into fascinating musical effects.”
1922 is based on Stephen King’s 131-page storytelling of a man’s confession of his wife’s murder. The tale is told from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story’s unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.
