With the film now available digitally and On Demand, Lakeshore Records has digitally released the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to the horror comedy We Summon the Darkness from director Marc Meyers.
The original score is composed by Timothy Williams (Brightburn, Wild Horses).
“When director Marc Meyers reached out to me about creating a score for We Summon the Darkness, I showed him my bank of '80s synthesizers and we both agreed they would be perfect. Not only do the Mono/Poly, Prophet and Juno 106 bring an authentic feel to his '80s-era film, but using legitimate '80s synthesizers is a more organic experience as a composer," Williams said on his scoring process. "With contemporary synths, you can call up the same sounds again and again, but with the old school synths, you adjust multiple knobs to create sounds that are impossible to replicate. When you find a sound you like, you have to record it immediately because once you change any of the knobs, the sound is gone forever."
He continues, "It was new territory for me to blend an '80s soundscape with horror, and Marc and I discussed the idea of writing a different kind of darker '80s score with inspiration from John Carpenter. When I watched the film for the first time, I was struck by the high energy, the dark humor and the amazing performances by the cast, which includes Alexandra Daddario, Maddie Hasson, Amy Forsyth and a great cameo by Johnny Knoxville. It turned out to be the most fun two months I’ve ever spent writing a score. I am honored that it won best score at LA Screamfest 2019. Hope you enjoy!"

In the film, "On the way to a heavy metal concert, Alexis (Alexandra Daddario) and two girlfriends hear a news report of a local murder believed to be tied to a series of satanic killings. After the show, the girls invite three guys to join them at the estate owned by Alexis’s father, a fire-and-brimstone preacher (Johnny Knoxville). What starts as a party suddenly turns dark and deadly in this devilishly entertaining thriller."
We Summon the Darkness also comes to Blu-ray and DVD on June 9th.
