Original score from the 2022 horror feature film directed by Yam Laranas, starring Rhen Escano, Marco Gumabao and Ella Cruz, produced by Aliud Entertainment, ImaginePerSecond and Viva Films, and released by Viva Films (Philippines).
THE STORY: A group of friends experiences terror because of a prank that went wrong.
THE SCORE: “I really enjoyed working on this project with my long time collaborator, director Yam Laranas. This film is something slightly different than what we have done together before. This is a more straight forward date movie/slasher movie with lots of jump scares etc. Also in terms of the music it’s different, Yam wanted a ‘youthful’ electronic score with a touch of retro horror scores à la John Carpenter and others. So I had the opportunity to delve into a lot of old synthesizer based scores for my research/preproduction. Although the score is mostly ‘modern’, there is a hint of electronic horror scores from the past.” – Oscar Fogelström
