TYLER BATES' MUSIC FEATURED IN GRINDHOUSE TRAILERS
April 4, 2007 – Los Angeles, CA – Theatrical previews for the double horror feature, Grindhouse, directed by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, will include The Weinstein Company’s Rob Zombie written and directed HALLOWEEN teaser trailer which features Tyler Bates’ (300 composer) recreation of John Carpenter’s classic Halloween theme, which Fangoria comments, “Spooky haunted-house ambiance. Female gasps of terror. Yep, this is definitely a HALLOWEEN theme done Rob Zombie-style.”
Also as part of Grindhouse, Tarantino and Rodriguez have contracted a group of directors to create trailers for fictitious movies to play between the two features. One such trailer is Rob Zombie’s Werewolf Women of the S.S., which features Nicolas Cage and music by Tyler Bates.
Bates received critical acclaim for his music for Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects, which Cinefantastique called, “seizure-inducing” and “the kind of horror music that gets under your skin like a bad dream-music concrete as a stone block of fear.” In addition to the August release of HALLOWEEN, Bates upcoming projects include Day Of The Dead directed by HALLOWEEN alum Steve Miner, and Warner Bros. Watchmen directed by Zack Snyder (300)
