Z for Zachariah Soundtrack Review

ZforZachariahCDZ for Zachariah Soundtrack
Released by Varèse Sarabande, 2015
26 Tracks with a total running time of 52 min.
Music by Heather McIntoch

This is another great example where we get a score to review, have no idea what the movie is about, but really enjoy the images it creates in our minds eye. Or really, the feelings that the music creates. For this one, it brings to mind a feeling of peacefulness and somber. Sure, for a horror site, one would think this wouldn’t be something we would like. Well, it might not be one we would always listen to, but any score that can create a mood or feeling, just by the music, means that the creator has done something magical.

This score is filled with piano, long slow strings, but isn’t just like one of those musical tracks you listen to fall asleep at night. No, this does have an underlying darkness to it, one that only seems to peak its head out every now and then. There are tracks where there seems to be an faster tempo, like a fast paced drum beat, but in the distance.

So while this might not be the creepy and spine-tingling score that we normally gravitate towards, this is still a treat for the ears.
