Dreamcatcher [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

All Music Guide - Heather Phares

The mix of orchestral and electronic elements in the score works well for the most part, with one flowing seamlessly into the other on "Curtis and Owen Battle," which builds from ominous drones into a tribal drumbeat and sharp stabs of brass and strings. Slight nods to Native American percussion and melodies throughout the score tie the music back to the film's setting, but Howard's real accomplishment is how well he builds up and releases tension in pieces like "Henry Returns to the Cabin" and "The Weasel," which use the tried and true, soft-then-loud dynamics of horror film music in slightly unexpected ways. Dreamcatcher is a moody and taut score, which is more than can be said of the movie that inspired this music.

    Refreshing

    This album is as refreshing as the movie that, however disappointing to some, was a nice break from the generic hollywood fodder that seems to stimulate our American Idol crazed nation. It is spooky, clean, and exciting, but is a title that you certainly must be in the mood for!
