The New Face in Horror...The New Sound of Horror

Knucklebones is a fun and scary homage to those iconic 80's era slasher movies.

Current Music has created an original score for "Knucklebones", a full length feature film in the Classic Monster Horror - Teen Slasher Genre. The score is composed by Todd P Andrew. Director Mitch Wilson says “Todd Andrew did an amazing job on our film Knucklebones. The movie truly came alive the day Todd came on board. His musical score is everything a horror movie director could wish for and I am eternally grateful to him as well as Maddie Madsen, Brooke Villanyi, Christian Salyer and the entire team at Current Music.” The film, presented by Knucklebones Productions LLC and Midnight Releasing, is available on DVD, iTunes, Netflix and Amazon, just in time for a good Halloween scare.

Composer Todd P Andrew says: "I use a lot of dark electronic sounds. One of my favorite modern horror scores is the 'Hills Have Eyes' remake, with those low distorted sirens. Something about that makes me feel scared on it's own. Also, Christopher Young is my all time favorite, his music in 'Sinister' was the best thing about it, he took creepy sound design to a whole new level. I also love a good orchestral score too, like his music in 'Hellraiser', so I combined that in there too. I love throwing things together and seeing what happens, like the main melody for Knucklebones was made of backwards guitar feedback and some sounds that I stretched out and manipulated into that melody. One of my favorite modern directors is Rob Zombie, and after I finished each cue I gave it the 'Rob Zombie test'. Thats where I imagined sitting in a room and showing him what I just did. If I pictured him cringing or making a face, I had more work to do".

The storyline centers around Neesa Avery (Julin Jean), who after suffering a near death experience, has literally been to Hell and back. When she and a group of friends (Katie Bosaki, Cameron Dean Stewart, Taylor Tippins, Justin Arnold), discover an ancient dice game hidden behind a wall in an abandoned WWII factory, they unleash the powerful demon Knucklebones (Tom Zembrod), bent on taking them out one by one. The kids attempt to banish the demon with the help of a local homeless squatter (Jason Duffy Klemm), who, having had a previous run-in with the demon, further explains the rules of the dice game. As the kids attempt to finish the "game", it becomes clear that Knucklebones has special plans for Neesa and, having met her briefly in Hell, is saving her for last. With an emphasis on practical effects and an original creature design by GOTCHA HALLOWEEN CONCEPTS - a company founded by Academy Award winning visual effects wizard Robert Short (BEETLEJUICE) - Knucklebones is a fun and scary homage to those iconic 80's era slasher movies.
