Lionsgate Has Yet to Release “You’re Next” Score

By on February 6, 2014

If you’re into the suspenseful-thriller-with a comedic twist kind of movie, then you’ll definitely enjoy Lionsgate’s “You’re Next,” a film where a home invasion by animal-mask-wearing murderers surprise a tensed family’s dinner.

The project was a low-budget film premiered at Toronto’s International Film Festival in 2011.  Lionsgate then picked up the movie for distribution, which was released nationwide in August 2013.  Written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard, “You’re Next” is the type of film that surprises those expecting the typical, horror movie story.

If you’re not attracted to the theme, story or genre of the film, the music will definitely catch your attention.  The music choices for the film have exceeded expectations for many.  After watching the film, you may realize that you want more and more of the music.

The 70s song by The Dwight Twilley Band, “Looking for the Magic,” has gained exposure and popularity with younger audiences because of the film.  Customer reviews on iTunes have mentioned that they purchased the song solely because they were captivated by it while watching “You’re Next.”

If there were anything excellent about this film, it would definitely be the film score.  Mads Heldtberg is a film and commercial composer who contributed to the music composition for the film.  Heldtberg’s choices transmitted an electronic, dark, suspenseful vibe.

Heldtberg stated through his Twitter account that “there’s been some talk” by Lionsgate to release the score, but the company has not confirmed this.  Hopefully, they decide to release a score or soundtrack soon.  There are many fans that would appreciate this.

Heldtberg’s work can also be heard in “Cheap Thrills,” a film to be released on March 24, 2014 in the United States.  “Cheap Thrills” was first released at SXSW 2013 in Austin, Texas.  Director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett will be attending next month’s SXSW 2014 for their latest film, “The Guest.”
