Music for Brian O'Malley's feature "Let Us Prey" (2014)
Plot : Rachel, a rookie cop, is about to begin her first nightshift in a neglected police station in a backwater town. The kind of place where the tide has gone out and stranded a motley bunch of the aimless, the forgotten, the bitter-and-twisted who all think that, really, they deserve to be somewhere else. They all think they’re there by accident and that, with a little luck, life is going to get better. Wrong, on both counts. Six is about to arrive – and All Hell Will Break Loose!
The "Let Us Prey" soundtrack is now available from iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, and on cd from Bandcamp.
Winner - Best Music at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival
Winner - Meliée d'Argent - Best European Fantastic Film at the BIFFF in Brussels.
Press clippings -
"The score of this film is perfect, especially with its very riveting motif of a consistent beat that puts the audience in a state of trance and excitement of the situation to follow. " (Quip)
"The exciting action, bloody executions, and suspenseful shoot-outs are made freakishly tense due to a phenomenal score by Steve Lynch. It channels the very best of the famous John Carpenter-esque electronic style and O’Malley combines it with the crisp cinematography of Piers McGrail in order to create a nightmarish atmosphere and mood." (Thy Critic Man)
"Let Us Prey also has a corking Carpenterish score by Steve Lynch" (Teddy Jamieson - Herald Scotland)
"Once the end credits roll, try to focus on the atmosphere of the whole thing, the fantastic score by Steve Lynch, the enjoyable backstory that reveals a lot more about the character played by McIntosh, the gore moments, and the absolutely loopy finale." (Kevin Matthews - Flick Feast)
"The film was very stylishly shot with great ominous visuals and an excellent score really adding to the atmosphere" (End of the Universe)
"The soundtrack is enthralling; reconfirming that 80s synthesizers are well and truly back in film-score fashion." (Reel Insights)
