With the Fede Alvarez-directed Evil Dead remake coming out next Friday, it’d be a crime to not report on composer Roque Baños‘ score for the film, which many are hailing as nothing short of brilliance. On April 9th, LaLaLand Records will be releasing the soundtrack as a digital download AND as a deluxe CD edition, the latter of which will feature 25 minutes of additional music not featured in the digital download. The CD version of the standard edition will be available on Amazon and all other major online retailers May 7th.
“In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.”
