LAKESHORE RECORDS TO RELEASE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK FOR DRAG ME TO HELL
Composer Christopher Young Collaborates With Director Sam Raimi For The Film
(August 17, 2009- Los Angeles, CA) â Lakeshore Records will release the original soundtrack for DRAG ME TO HELL, available digitally (iTunes and Amazon Digital) in July and in stores on August 18, 2009. Christopher Young (The Informers, The Uninvited) composed the music.
Golden Globe-nominated composer Christopher Young has scored almost 100 successful features ranging across virtually every genre, all with strikingly original music. Never repeating himself, Youngâs works extend from the spine-tingling Hellraiser showcasing his seminal upbringing in horror; to the new-techno sound of Swordfish and the resonant, genuine Celtic sounds of The Shipping News. With each successive Christopher Young crafted score, the composer continually stretches the bounds of his versatility.
Young has worked with some of the top filmmakers of the past ten years including DRAG ME TO HELL director Sam Raimi (The Gift, Spiderman 3, The Grudge and The Grudge 2), Norman Jewison (The Hurricane and Bandits), and Curtis Hanson (Lucky You, Wonder Boys). In addition to his busy film-composing schedule, Young is imparting his experience and knowledge to a new generation of film composers, teaching at USC since the early nineties. He is a two-term past president of The Film Music Society and the president of the Madrid Film Music Festival in Spain.
Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is an ambitious L.A. loan officer with a charming boyfriend, professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long). Life is good until the mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) arrives at the bank to beg for an extension on her home loan. Should Christine follow her instincts and give the old woman a break? Or should she deny the extension to impress her boss, Mr. Jacks, and get a leg-up on a promotion? Christine fatefully chooses the latter, shaming Mrs. Ganush and dispossessing her of her home.
In retaliation, the old woman places the powerful curse of the Lamia on Christine, transforming her life into a living hell. Haunted by an evil spirit and misunderstood by a skeptical boyfriend, she seeks the aid of seer Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) to save her soul from eternal damnation. To help the shattered Christine return her life to normal, the psychic sets her on a frantic course to reverse the spell. As evil forces close in, Christine must face the unthinkable: How far will she go to break free of the curse?
Universal Pictures presents DRAG ME TO HELL released nationwide on May 29, 2009. DRAG ME TO HELL original soundtrack on Lakeshore Records will be available via iTunes and Amazon Digital in July and in stores on August 18, 2009.
