FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW HORROR FILM THE STRANGERS SOUNDTRACK TO BE RELEASED BY LAKESHORE RECORDS
Soundtrack Recording Features Original Music By tomandandy
(May 20, 2008- Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack for THE STRANGERS on May 20th via iTunes and in stores on May 27th. The soundtrack contains original music composed by tomandandy.
Andy Milburn and Thomas Hadju are tomandandy. The duo met at Princeton University, where they began writing music together. They would write short pieces which they dubbed ‘blasts’ comprised of bits of disjunct sounds. Though they did not translate when performed in concert halls, these blasts were perfect when combined with images on TV. Soon tomandandy moved to NY and began writing for TV and film. Their first feature film soundtrack was 1994’s KILLING ZOE for writer/director Roger Avary. Their film credits include THE HILLS HAVE EYES, THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES, THE RULES OF ATTRACTION and ARLINGTON ROAD.
Lock the doors. Assume you're safe. The horrifying events that took place in the Hoyt family's vacation home at 1801 Clark Road on February 11, 2005, are still not entirely known.
Champagne. Rose petals. Candlelight.
It was supposed to be a night of celebration for Kristen McKay (Liv Tyler) and James Hoyt (Scott Speedman). But after leaving a friend's wedding reception and returning to the house, everything had collapsed for the happy couple. Then came a 4 a.m. knock on the door and a haunting voice. Is Tamara here? Writer/director Bryan Bertino explores our most universal fears in The Strangers, a terrifying suspense thriller about a couple whose remote getaway becomes a place of terror when masked strangers invade. The confrontation forces Kristen and James to go far beyond what they thought themselves capable of if they hope to survive.
Rogue Pictures presents THE STRANGERS, in theaters on May 30, 2008. THE STRANGERS original soundtrack on Lakeshore Records will be available on iTunes on May 20th and in stores on May 27, 2008.
