Editorial Reviews

Original soundtrack to the 2012 horror film, composed by David Julyan. Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly) and Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) comes The Cabin In The Woods, a mind-blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out. Starring Kristen Connolly, Chns Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Richard Jenkins, and Bradley Whitford.

Format: Audio CD
Once upon a time David Julyan was Christopher Nolan's go-to composer. Julyan's style is so identifiable and worked so well in films like Memento, Insomnia and The Prestige. He flexed his horror chops for The Descent but was still able to maintain his brooding style. For Cabin In The Woods we can tell the composer is having fun, but still manages to produce an extremely effective score. There is just a sense of dread within Julyan's music. He can be melodic if he wants to or in some cases the music just exists and builds in atmospheric ways. Here he does give us something tangible versus say The Prestige which definitely frustrated some people's listening experience (even though the score worked perfectly within the film).

The music here is dreary as can be expected, but it's extremely atmospheric. The score takes its time to build into something. You can tell different layers are very quietly added in and out. Then we take an initial plunge into some intense music. Music that has an extreme weight and hits you like rolled up rug giving you a thud after thud. Then the score takes a turn for the melodic while still maintaining its thumping intensity. Swirling strings come in and create quick chaos, but before you know it they're gone and it's back to atmospheres. For the final act Julyan does ramp it up and the music will rattle you. The music never onslaughts the listener and he somehow manages to inject an emotional elegance to the whole package. In the end we wrap up with that signature David Julyan afterthought. Every score of his ends very similarly, and it's haunting and beautiful at the same time.

This is not a gritty horror score, nor can it really be a horror score. At times it'll be horror and at other times it takes a thriller aspect.

OK, does anyone know if this is the "Score" or the "Soundtrack"?
"Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" and "Music By David Julyan" aren't contradicting phrases. It's the score, which was fantastic.
