Child's Play remake

Bear McCreary has grown to be one of the most prolific composers in the business. His work on The Walking Dead, Playstation 4’s God of War, and Outlander all cemented his talents for the silver screen, television, and vast world of gaming. This year alone, he scored Happy Death Day 2U, The Professor and the Madman, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, most recently, the remake of Child’s Play. McCreary possesses the innate ability to fluctuate between genres and create potent melodies that allow audiences to fully immerse themselves into worlds of intergalactic warfare, monsters, and period dramas.

I spoke with him this week about Child’s Play and his tactile, whimsical approach to scoring one of the most uniquely creative horror scores ever composed.

child's play remake theme music

You’ll have to wait another week before you can see the Child’s Play remake. But you can listen to Bear McCreary‘s eerie Child’s Play theme right now! In fact, you can listen to the entire score, as it’s now streaming in full. McCreary performed the main theme using toy instruments, lending an extra amount of flair to the proceedings. On top of all that, the theme closes with Mark Hamill, voice of the new Chucky, singing a really creepy little lullaby. Hear the Child’s Play remake theme music, and stream the soundtrack in full, below…if you dare.

The Godzilla King of the Monsters soundtrack, with a score composed by Bear McCreary, comes with a nice surprise: a cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s “Godzilla.” The new take on the song comes courtesy of McCreary and System of a Down’s Serj Tankian, and while the original is probably superior, this version will probably rock your socks off. Hear the cover below.

hell fest

Update: A new press release informs us that Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Happy Death Day) will compose the score for Hell Fest. Our original article follows.

In recent years, I’ve become a huge fan of haunted house attractions. Every year, Universal Studios and Knotts Berry Farm hold Halloween events with scary mazes which are a whole lot of fun. Some of my friends who love horror films absolutely refuse to ever go to these events. One of them even fears that she might be killed in a maze and nobody would notice and just think it’d part of the show, and her dead rotting carcass is just another gruesome prop in the set design.

Hell Fest is the movie version of that idea, and while the execution looks like a bland studio horror film, I’m intrigued enough by the idea and horror theme park setting to see this film in theaters. Check out the Hell Fest trailer below.

J.J. Abrams is a busy man. Not only did he direct, produce and co-write Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but he still found some time left over in his day to produce a follow-up to Matt Reeves‘ POV monster movie Cloverfield.

Dan Trachtenberg‘s 10 Cloverfield Lane might not be a sequel (although Abrams seems to suggest one could still happen one day), so how does it connect to the original Cloverfield movie? Will God Particle be third film in the “Clover-verse”? And might Cannibal Airlines actually become a real movie? We also learn how Abrams found director Dan Trachtenberg, discuss the cleverly minimal marketing campaign, and get the details on Bear McCreary‘s masterful score. And the best thing is this interview is entirely SPOILER FREE, so don’t be afraid to start reading now.
