Stream The Title Theme From Upcoming Horror DEAD AWAKE

Composer Marc Vanocur conjures the 80s nostalgia in his original score.

The creator of Final Destination, screenwriter Jeffrey Reddick returns to horror this summer with his script for director Phillip Guzman's Dead Awake, a thriller exploring the phenomenon of sleep paralysis. The movie stars Jocelin Donahue, Jesse Bradford, Lori Petty and Brea Grant.

We've been given a preview of the film's score from composer Marc Vanocur with the title theme from Dead Awake.

"The Dead Awake soundtrack is a fusion between an electronic and percussive, contemporary set of music moments set against a more traditional orchestrated horror score," says the composer, who also doubles as the color corrector for the movie. "We are primarily in the electronic world when we are awake, but when asleep and in the midst of the night hag, we transition to a string and wind version of a contemporary horror score."

"Marc is an incredible musician who can play anything with any instrument, and he loves horror movies, so our sentiments were right on par," says director Guzman. “We wanted to do something that mixed Girl With the Dragon Tattoo with Trent Reznor electrics feel; I wanted something that felt fresh and electronic with some classical elements. Marc captured our vision, and the result is a killer soundtrack!”

The official synopsis reads:

The story follows Kate Bowman (Jocelin Donahue) a straight-laced social worker who is plunged into a world of supernatural terror while investigating a series of deaths where people died in their sleep. Before expiring, the victims all reported being paralyzed and tormented by a dark entity during their sleep. As she struggles to stay awake, the heroine must find a way to save herself and her friends from the ancient evil that stalks victims in their sleep.
