We have released several of Guy Farley’s gorgeous scores before (Land of the Blind, The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey, The Flock), but our new one is probably the best – and possibly Guy’s finest film score to date.
The orchestral score for Anthony Hickox thriller Knife Edge, starring Joan Plowright, Hugh Bonneville, Natalie Press, Jamie Harris and Tamsin Egerton, is an affectionate hommage to the classic genre film scores of the 1970s: you will hear influences of John Barry in the wonderful love theme, of Jerry Goldsmith in the atmospheric horror writing and of Bernard Herrmann in the tense suspense music and title theme. In our opinion, this is a score that is a must-have for any fan of old-school film music at its best – the difference being that it is actually written for a new film!
Of course, fans familiar with director Anthony Hickox knows that he’s a director who appreciates big orchestral scores in his films – remember Richard Stone’s score for Sundown, Randy Miller’s for Hellraiser III or Mark McKenzie’s for Warlock: The Armageddon? Guy Farley’s score for Knife Edge is yet another example of a director with great taste in music!
