Scottish post-rock band Mogwai will be scoring the new French horror TV series Les Revenants, which is loosely based upon the Robin Campillo film of the same name (released with the English title They Came Back). The band will be releasing a 10″ limited edition EP (only 2,000 copies) on Jan. 28th, 2013 that will contain compositions from the film. A full soundtrack will be released Feb. 25th on CD, LP, and digital formats. You can hear samples from the soundtrack here.
Below you can watch a trailer for the TV show as well as the trailer for the original film.
While I know that I’ve seen They Came Back, I don’t remember terribly much about it. However, I remember that it was definitely a very different kind of zombie film, one that played far more to emotions rather than scares and violence. Again, it’s been several years since I’ve seen it (I rented it, that’s how long ago it was). Anyone remember the film well enough to refresh my memory?
