Los Angeles, CA. (Top40 Charts/ CineMedia Promotions) - Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack for THE UNINVITED, available digitally (iTunes and Amazon Digital) on January 27th and in stores on February 10. The film is based on the 2003 Kim Jee-Woon's 2003 film, Changhwa Hongryon. Christopher
Young (Untraceable, Spiderman 3) composed the score.
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, Young's 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 Norman Jewison (The Hurricane and Bandits), Sam Raimi (The Gift, Spiderman 3, The Grudge and The Grudge 2) 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.
THE UNINVITED revolves around Anna (Emily Browning) who returns home after spending time in the hospital following the tragic death of her mother. Her recovery suffers a setback when she discovers her father (David Strathaim) has become engaged to her mother's former nurse, Rachel (Elizabeth Banks). That night Anna is visited by her mother's ghost, who warns her of Rachel's intentions. Together Anna and her sister (Arielle Kebbel) try to convince their father that his current fiancee is not who she pretends to be, and what should have been a happy family reunion becomes a lethal battle of wills between stepdaughters and stepmother.
Dreamworks Pictures presents THE UNINVITED in theaters nationwide on January 30, 2009. THE UNINVITED original soundtrack on Lakeshore Records will be available via iTunes and Amazon Digital on January 27th and in stores on February 10, 2009.
