Fresh off the back of last year’s Beyond Clueless, director and occasional LWLies contributor Charlie Lyne is back with another fascinating cine odyssey.
A feature-length collage comprised of clips from iconic and obscure horror movies, Fear Itself, is a voyage into the furthest recesses of the human psyche through the prism of cinema. The film also boasts a cracking score by Summer Camp’s Jeremy Warmsley, which you can listen to exclusively below.
Here’s what Lyne had to say when we asked him about the soundtrack:
“When you think about horror soundtracks, it’s easy to remember only the showboaters – those pieces of music that impose themselves so wholly on a scene that the images they’re paired with become almost secondary. I guess ‘The Murder’ from Bernard Hermann’s Psycho score is the most famous example. But just as interesting, I think, are those horror soundscapes that operate on a more subliminal level, constantly probing the viewer with delicate sounds that are impossible to dislocate from the images they accompany. Jeremy’s score weaves that tapestry elegantly – and over a constantly changing collage of images – though of course, it doesn’t deny itself the occasional spot of showboating either.”
