Devin Burrows

The Wretched - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Release Notes
  • Original Motion Picture Score to the new horror classic THE WRETCHED
  • “Devin Burrows’ score escalates from ominous dread into nerve-jangling haute terror” – The Hollywood Reporter

A troubled teenager discovers that an ancient evil has disguised itself as his neighbor and has started to prey on the local children in the Pierce Brothers’ The Wretched. A critical success on the festival scene, The Wretched has all the crunchy grime, practical FX and witchcraftian shocks one would expect for a dark, modern folk horror and naturally it has a soundtrack to match. Composer Devin Burrows evokes the acoustic movements of the forest-dwelling “dark mother” – a sound mix of bestial growls and the snap & crack of physical distortion while wet earth slurps – with nerve-shredding violin strings and dark ambiance. In the meantime, Burrows brings panic to the forefront of his score for the more thrilling scenes where nuance takes a back seat to full-on terror.
