Scored to Death documentary adds Voyag3r to cover Phantasm theme

The critically acclaimed Scored to Death book series explored the craft of horror film scoring in greater detail than ever before, through in-depth interviews with many of the genre’s greatest composers. Now author and filmmaker J. Blake Fichera is creating a companion documentary that examines the importance of music in horror and how the genre’s most beloved films and franchises use music to help craft cinema’s scariest stories.

The documentary is currently in production and will be shooting through 2023 with an anticipated release in 2024 and will feature interviews with many of horror’s most talented and iconic composers and filmmakers. However, the size and scope of the film will be determined by the funds raised in this campaign.

In addition to the documentary itself (on digital and/or factory-pressed Blu-Ray), we have a wide range of rewards to thank our backers for their support, including an exclusive disc of bonus content, signed copies of the Scored the Death books, opportunities to co-host the Scored to Death Radio podcast, a virtual composer Q&A, associate & executive producer credits, and a limited-edition album of horror movie theme covers.

The outpouring of support for the documentary, from friends, fans, musicians, and composers has been amazing. It is because of their generosity that we are not only able to make this film, but we have the ability to offer some amazing musical pledge tier rewards. An eclectic all-star line-up of musicians and composers have lent their talents to a Scored to Death compilation album created specifically to help raise funds for the film.

The album will be offered on limited edition vinyl LP and CD, and features newly recorded covers of memorable horror themes by:

• Alan Howarth
• Voyag3r
• Anima Morte (in an unusual band line-up)
• Steve Moore (from the band Zombi)
• Holly Amber Church
• Wojciech Golczewski
• Brooke Blair & Will Blair
• Richard Christy (former Death & current Charred Walls of the Damned drummer)
and more…
