Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I’m about to run off to some super secret crazy fun LA stuff, but before I go I wanted to run this quick story for you Don Coscarelli fans (and you better be Don Coscarelli fans or we’re going to have some words, you and me).
John Dies At The End, a darkly black tale of weirdness surrounding a drug called Soy Sauce, has just been announced as the closing night film of Toronto Film Festival’s Midnight Madness section (playing Saturday, September 15th) and that’s great for Don, the festival and all those lucky enough to be going (the entire Toronto line-up looks unreal this year).
But there’s also something cool for the rest of us poor sods who can’t go, but want a glimpse at the insanity that is John Dies At The End. Over at their minutes old, newly launched website (www.johndies.com) they’ve posted up two tracks from Brian Tyler’s score for the film.
We’ve been tracking Tyler’s work here at AICN since the beginning, when he really exploded onto the indie film scene with his straight up fantastic score for another little piece of weirdness called Six String Samurai. Ever since then Tyler’s become one of Hollywood’s go-to composers, scoring films like Frailty, Constantine, Rambo, the Fast and the Furious films and Coscarelli’s own Bubba Ho-tep.
Now he reteams with the director and you can hear some of his score by clicking right here right now! Do it!
Congrats to Don and his team for making the cut at Toronto!
