Joseph Bishara is a widely recognized name in the horror world, he's the man behind the music for Insidious and The Conjuring, and now he's back with a new score for Orion's creepy kid movie The Prodigy, which just hit theaters. If you really dig the score, you'll be happy to know it's available on vinyl from Waxwork Records.
"The haunting soundtrack by Joseph Bishara is an expert composition of dark orchestral scoring focusing on heavy string arrangements, clarinet, and horns reminiscent of classic 1970’s horror soundtracks. The orchestration is blended with emotive electronic soundscapes. Bishara’s tense strings, coupled with droning electronic rhythms and piano, sets the dark tone and effectively captures impending doom and tragedy."
Waxwork Records worked directly with Orion Pictures and Bishara to create a deluxe vinyl release of the soundtrack featuring UV reactive 180 gram “Blue Iris” colored vinyl, new art by Adam Rabalais, a printed insert, old style tip-on gatefold jacketsand high quality LP packaging.
It was Waxwork’s aim to create a vinyl record that could appear “possessed”, and by using UV reactive compounds, the record emits an eerie, glowing splatter effect when exposed to a black light. The unique result is a stunning vinyl record, both sonically and visually. Much like the character Miles in The Prodigy, the vinyl soundtrack itself is hiding something sinister in plain sight!
Directed by Nicholas McCarthy and starring Taylor Shilling ("Orange Is The New Black") and Jackson Robert Scott (2017’s IT: The First Chapter), The Prodigy centers around a child whose disturbing behavior signals that an evil, possibly supernatural force has possessed him.
