The man behind the score for Hellraiser and more
Just a few examples from Young’s exhaustive resume: Hellraiser, The Fly II, Spider-Man 3, The Grudge and Drag Me to Hell.
“I watched an early cut of [Box of Shadows] and loved what I saw,” said Young. “I got my start in horror movies and still love those kinds of films, so I was happy to accept producer Ed Polgardyâs invitation to create the main theme for the movie and the evil music box.”
Box of Shadows tells the story of a group of college-age friends who find a mechanical coffin that allows them to experience the world as ghosts. Music plays an important role in the film because the coffin contains a mysterious music box that, when activated, triggers the ghost transformations.
Young developed the main theme and several coffin themes, which are being utilized by the movie’s other composer, JosÃ© J. Herring. Young is currently working on Priest for director Scott Stewart and producer Sam Raimi. Director Mauro Borrelli was thrilled to get Young on board, since he has been a fan of his work for many years.
Box of Shadows is currently in post-production and slated for release later this year. Watch some behind-the-scenes videos here.
