Occasionally, Heffes is required to accompany actual moments of possession, and then he revs things up, notably in such cues as "The Terror Is Real." But mostly, he keeps things at a simmer, locating his themes in celli and violas, plus a repetitive piano theme. When he wants to get a little more disturbing, as in "Angeline's Story," for example, he augments the lower sounds...

Occasionally, Heffes is required to accompany actual moments of possession, and then he revs things up, notably in such cues as "The Terror Is Real." But mostly, he keeps things at a simmer, locating his themes in celli and violas, plus a repetitive piano theme. When he wants to get a little more disturbing, as in "Angeline's Story," for example, he augments the lower sounds with some synthesized percussion.
