Episode 159: Andy Muschietti On The Music Of IT (CONTAINS SPOILERS)

Sep 13, 05:34 PM
There can be few cinematic genres that benefit more from the power of score than horror. 

And it IT and IT: Chapter 2, writer / director Andy Muschietti and his composer Benjamin Wallfisch have nailed it. 

Reflecting the shape-shifting abilities of Pennywise The Clown, Benjamin has produced a soundscape which Andy describes as 'bendy' - that switches in an instant from the safe and dreamy to something altogether more dark and twisted.

As well as discussing the score at length, Andy also talks us through some of the needle drops he used, including tracks by The Cure and The Cult.
