Faith No More’s Mike Patton Scored Netflix’s ‘1922’

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.

    Yet another reason to watch this tonight (and look forward to that soundtrack).

    Angel Dust gets my vote as the most underrated album of the 90’s.

    • Saturn

      Underrated by whom?
      Most of my friends are metal ‘eads and love the album.

        Guess I’ll go with the general population who think that Faith No More’s output begins and ends with “that video with the fish”.

      • Frank Gambino

        High five for using whom the proper way.

  • MaxNerdcore

    Check out Peeping Tom. Great Patton band/album.

    • Creepshow

      Good album. It’s a shame there was only one.

    • Night of the NixEclips

      The soundtrack for Crank 2 is amazing.

    Just saw this movie last night. Excellent slow burner though it might not push the horror buttons that often… The score really gets under your skin. And Thomas Jane (an underrated actor if there ever was one) really deserves an Oscar for this. He’s brilliant.

  • was fine for me.
