Intrada: "BALTO (EXPANDED)" Music Composed and Conducted by JAMES HORNER


Intrada announces its latest release from the canon of James Horner – the 1995 Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment animated feature, Balto. Balto was one of three animated films Horner scored for Steven Spielberg's Amblimation, the prior two being An American Tail: Fievel Goes West and We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story.  Just as Spielberg endowed his animated features with grand cinematic qualities, so too did Horner score them with a broad symphonic sweep, writing in large musical paragraphs to enhance the films’ scope. Here the composer weaves just one principal theme throughout his score — a theme that proves remarkably malleable. But Horner treats it to so many variations involving pitch, rhythm, color and harmony that it is only with careful listening that one becomes aware of how pervasive it is. Animated films represent a relatively small portion of James Horner’s film score output (he scored 8 such projects), but reveal a large portion of his generous heart. His music for Balto engages our minds with its craft and captivates our hearts with its artistry, performed by the composer-led London Symphony Orchestra who brings Horner’s work to vibrant life.

At the time of the film's release, MCA released an album of highlights. For this Intrada presentation of the entire score, including several alternates, Intrada was provided access to the complete two-track stereo scoring session mixes, made by Shawn Murphy, on DATs provided by Universal Pictures.

Balto was inspired by true events. The real-life Balto, a Siberian husky, led the final dog team (of several) that delivered desperately needed diphtheria serum through over 600 miles of brutal January weather to Nome, Alaska, in 1925. The dog’s heroics made headlines and inspired the annual Iditarod sled race.

Intrada: "SIN OF INNOCENCE/LOVE THY NEIGHBOR" Music Composed and Conducted by GEORGES DELERUE


For Intrada's latest release from the 20th Century Fox catalog come two TV movies from the mid-'80s scored by none other than Georges Delerue. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television for broadcast on ABC, the 1984 TV movie Love Thy Neighbor was something of an inversion of the also-Delerue-scored The Woman Next Door. In that 1981 Truffaut film, a pair of ex-lovers, now married to other people, wind up as neighbors and rekindle their affair. By contrast, Love Thy Neighbor tells the story of a man and a woman who find solace in each other when their spouses run off together.

Showcasing his versatility as a composer, Delerue’s music for Love Thy Neighbor is divided fairly evenly between underscore and source music. This being a comedy, the tone never grows too heavy; Delerue lifts the mood with high-spirited melodies, initially featuring flute and strings. The telefilm debuted on May 23, 1984, and was a ratings victory for the network, winding up the most-watched program for the week.

As with Love Thy Neighbor, Sin of Innocence deals with the fallout of divorce, this time through the lens of the children involved. Bill Bixby plays a widower who marries a divorcee played by Dee Wallace Stone. Their combined household thrusts together teenage son (Dermot Mulroney) and teenage daughter (Megan Follows). The newly minted step-siblings’ relationship is tense at first, but soon becomes affectionate—and then blossoms into something more. A lot more. The stakes for the telefilm's star-crossed young protagonists feel more urgent and consequential, and this is shown in both the quantity of dramatic underscore and the overall tone, which is lush and at times bittersweet. The palette is orchestral, though enhanced in places with synthesizers, and electric guitar (delicately performed) provides a contemporary flavor. Sin of Innocence premiered on CBS on March 26, 1986.

Both scores were mixed and assembled by Mike Matessino and Neil S. Bulk from the stereo sessions elements stored at 20th Century Fox.

MovieScore Media: "Wildwitch" by Flemming Nordkrog


Co-inciding with the theatrical release of the film in Denmark and Germany, MovieScore Media releases Danish composer Flemming Nordkrog’s highly original fantasy score for Kaspar Munk’s family movie Wildwitch. Based on the popular book series by Lene Kaaberbøl, the movie tells the story of 12-year-old Clara who lives like any other girl until one day a mysterious black cat scratches her. Clara soon discovers that she can communicate with the cat and that she belongs to a family of Wildwitches with a strong connection to nature and animals. Together with her mentor aunt Isa and her friends, Kahla and Oscar, Clara must face her destiny and embark on a dangerous journey in order to save herself and the Wildworld from the ancient evil witch, Bravita Bloodyoung.

“I wanted to create a music that reflected the cold and misty nature present in the film, but also the spiritual evolution of Clara, our 12-year old main character” says Flemming Nordkrog about his contributions. “The music had to be fragile, mysterious and very organic. I wrote most of the musical themes and textures before the shooting of the film, working solely on paper and piano before I went on doing some very free-floating recordings of my ideas, with different groups of musicians. First the female voice, representing Clara, then a duo of cello and bass, a duo of alto flute and clarinet and a 30 piece string orchestra. The recorded material became the musical DNA of the film and my musical building blocks throughout my work on the film.“

Danish composer Flemming Nordkrog has been writing music to accompany motion pictures since 1996. Over the years, it has amounted to more than 100 productions - from feature films, short fiction to documentaries and TV-series. Since 2002 Flemming Nordkrog has started to work internationally, and has worked on several projects in France, Belgium and USA. His recent credits include Philippe Lioret’s Le fils de Jean, Max Kestner's Arctic-themed documentary Slette omstændigheder and the French drama series Chefs. Flemming is currently working on the Brazilian feature film Shine Your Eyes and the Danish TV series Follow the Money. (http://moviescoremedia.com/)

The soundtrack has a digital release date of  October 12, 2018. On the link below, you can view a video, featuring a suite from the score: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4iMks-Y9BI]

MVD Entertainment Group: "TORSO" (1973) [BLU-RAY]


A talented and versatile journeyman, director Sergio Martino (The Case of the Scorpion's Tail, Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key) has lent his talents to multiple genres across his long and varied career, but it is undoubtedly his giallo thrillers from the early 70s for which he is best known. Among the most highly acclaimed of these, 1973's Torso revels in the genre's time-honored traditions while simultaneously laying the groundwork for the modern slasher movie. A sex maniac is prowling the streets of Perugia, targeting picturesque university town's female students. Alarmed at plummeting life expectancy of the student body, Jane (Suzy Kendall, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) and her three friends elope to a secluded country villa - only to discover that, far from having left the terror behind, they've brought it with them! Also known as Carnal Violence, Torso was released in Italy towards the end of the giallo boom before enjoying a second life on the American grindhouse circuit. Co-starring Tina Aumont (Salon Kitty) and Luc Merenda (The Violent Professionals), the film finds its director at the top of his game, delivering copious levels of violence, sleaze and one of the tensest cat-and-mouse games ever committed to celluloid!

Coinciding with the film’s general release on 18 September 2018, ScreamWorks Records once again teams up with Holly Amber Church (The Devil’s Dolls, Ruin Me) with the composer’s next terrifying project, The Toybox.

With passengers including Denise Richards and Mischa Barton, the trip that was meant to bring together a dysfunctional family may be the last trip this group is ever going to take.

“The Toybox is my second feature collaboration with director Tom Nagel and I was thrilled to be a part of this film!“ recalls composer Holly Amber Church about the project. “This score combines atmospheric textures, cinematic orchestral elements and some old-school 80s synths to capture the feel, characters and emotions of the film. The Toybox is filled with a lot of intense action and suspense, some very creepy, unnerving moments and some heart-wrenching emotional scenes so I really got to write a great balance of music for this film. I hope that listeners will enjoy the soundtrack and the film!”

Holly Amber Church has scored many films including the gritty score for Padraig Reynolds’ crime thriller/horror feature Rites of Spring, and the orchestral thematic score for his supernatural thriller The Devil's Dolls, both which were released by IFC Midnight with Screamworks Records releasing the official soundtracks.

Lakeshore Records: "WHAT STILL REMAINS" Music by Jonathan Beard


Lakeshore Records pleased to announce the release of WHAT STILL REMAINS – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on Digital Download on October 5, 2018. The Album features original music by astounding Composer Jonathan Beard (STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC – KNIGHTS OF THE FALLEN EMPIRE).

A generation after the “Change”, a zombie virus that ravaged modern civilization, Anna (Lulu Antariksa), the last of her family, must choose the isolation of the only four walls she’s ever known or the unpredictability of a desolate wasteland and monsters.

Jonathan describes scoring WHAT STILL REMAINS, “In exploring the uncertain world that our characters face, the film unfolds as a complex and engaging psychological thriller, and the score needed to musically reflect that reality. We’re really looking at a Hitchcockian psychological tapestry, dialog scenes where what’s being discussed on the surface is 100% cover for what’s being insinuated below the surface, and the score gets to dance between those two levels.”

Anna encounters Peter (Colin O’Donoghue), who promises community of companionship and protection, and Berserkers, humans dressed as “the changed” searching for victims of their own. While Peter’s group may not prove exactly what Anna wants, they may be what she needs but Anna knows that nothing in WHAT STILL REMAINS is free.

“Peter presents a delicious musical opportunity: an intriguing and initially sympathetic character who is ultimately not what he seems. The theme for Peter is built around an unsettling four-note motif that obfuscates major and minor modes becoming more claustrophobic and intense as it progresses,” explains Jonathan, “Working with director Josh Mendoza, as well as stars Colin O’Donoghue and Lulu Antariksa, has been a dream. There’s nothing more enjoyable musically than getting to augment nuanced and compelling acting performances from a great cast, with a director who loves what music can bring to a film”.

Jonathan Beard creates music for media and the concert stage.  As a composer, his recent projects include scoring the feature films like FRANK VS. GOD and guest-composing for ABC's ONCE UPON A TIME.  For the stage, Jonathan co-composed the oratorio The Passion Of Anne Frank for the Los Angeles Master Chorale as part of their Voices Within residency, and his original theatre-score for Driving Miss Daisy received an NAACP Theatre Award nomination.  He also recently completed the I-Park Foundation Artist Residency for his in-progress electroacoustic opera Cesare, Child Of Night.

One of the most sought-after orchestrators in Los Angeles, Jonathan values collaboration with other composers very deeply.  He has worked closely with composers Junkie XL (DEADPOOL, THE DARK TOWER) and Bear McCreary (10 Cloverfield Lane, Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) for many years on numerous film, television, and video game projects, and more recently with composers including Abel Korzeniowski (PENNY DREADFUL), Heitor Pereira (Despicable Me 3) and Gordy Haab (Star Wars: Battlefront), among others. In 2017, he also completed orchestration on Adam Taylor’s evocative score for Hulu’s smash hit series THE HANDMAID’S TALE, which went on to win the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series.

Lakeshore Records: "306 HOLLYWOOD" Music by Troy Herion


This touching, visually stunning, and genre breaking film, directed by sister-brother artists and filmmakers Elan and Jonathan Bogarín, was the opening night film of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival’s NEXT section (and the first documentary ever to be selected for the program).

When siblings Elan and Jonathan Bogarin undertake an archeological excavation of their late grandmother’s house, they embark on a magical-realist journey in search of what life remains in the objects we leave behind. 306 HOLLYWOOD transforms the dusty fragments of an unassuming life into an epic metaphor for the nature of memory, time, and history.

“We wanted to create a heightened world, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary. So we went all in with the film score – treating the music as a full character in a way that shapes the film far more than a typical documentary. Troy’s magical realist film score brings out the wonder and mystery behind our everyday reality.” – Elan Bogarin, director.

The Bogarins embark from Grandma’s cluttered New Jersey home to ancient Rome, traversing worlds from fashion to physics in the excavation of the extraordinary universe contained in a single house. With help of scientists, curators, and archivists, tchotchkes become artifacts in the profound exploration of the question: When a loved one dies, what should we do with everything they left behind?

”The film explores the objects left behind after a loved one dies. Each object is a portal into the emotions of the past – and there is a sense of time travel. The music also travels through the decades -the chic optimism of the 60s, the hip drum beats of the 70s, and then there are overarching themes of surrealism and bittersweet reminiscence.” – Troy Herion, composer

“306 Hollywood was a unique collaboration where I not only scored the film, I am also one of the editors. Having the freedom to cut a scene while writing music allows for deep interconnections between the music, images, and rhythm of the film. I take the view that the film as a whole is musical.” – Troy Herion, composer

Troy Herion is a composer and filmmaker whose versatile compositions range from classical and avant-garde orchestral music to intricate and melodic electronic scores. With classical training from the Princeton University PhD program, Herion’s commissions include a Carnegie Hall debut with the American Composers Orchestra, an orchestral ballet with The Pennsylvania Ballet, and a large-scale experimental theater piece with Obie-winning Pig Iron Theatre and the Grammy-winning Crossing Choir.

Recent film scores by Troy Herion include award-winning films 306 Hollywood, The Dog, Mountain Fire Personnel, and You Can Go which have screened at Sundance, Toronto, SXSW, MoMA, and Tribeca Film Festival. Herion composes and directs visual-music films including Baroque Suite and New York: A City Symphony which have been called “marvelous” by New Yorker music critic Alex Ross and were featured on MTV, the New York Times, and NPR. His scores grace digital content for Google, The Whitney Museum, MoMA, The Getty, and many others.

Elan Bogarin & Jonathan Bogarin present 306 HOLLYWOOD in theaters now. 306 HOLLYWOOD opened in New York on Friday, September 28 at the Quad Cinema and continues with a national rollout with a San Francisco premiere this Friday, October 5, 2018.

Varese Sarabande: "9/30/55" Music by Leonard Rosenman


Available for the first time on CD!  Leonard Rosenman’s dramatic soundtrack score to 9/30/55, has been out of print for over 30 years. He composed the score for two of actor James Dean’s biggest films, East of Eden and Rebel Without A Cause, both in 1955. Neither soundtrack has ever been officially released. Rosenman used the themes he created for both East and Rebel as the basis for his score for 9/30/55. He breathes new life into those classic themes with new orchestrations and the use of a few solo instruments, such as harmonica, saxophone, and banjo to reflect the southern location of Conway, Arkansas, where 9/30/55 takes place.

Leonard Rosenman was born in Brooklyn, New York. After service in the Pacific with the United States Army Air Forces in World War II, he earned a bachelor's degree in music from the University of California, Berkeley. He also studied composition with Arnold Schoenberg, Roger Sessions and Luigi Dallapiccola.

Amongst Rosenman's earliest film work was the scores for James Dean movies East of Eden (1955) and Rebel Without a Cause (1955). Rosenman had lived together with Dean whom he gave piano lessons to and it was Dean who introduced him to the director Elia Kazan. Dean also lobbied George Stevens to let Rosenman score Giant, but Stevens preferred the more traditional Dimitri Tiomkin. [https://www.varesesarabande.com/]

Varèse Sarabande is excited to announce the first-ever double LP release for "V FOR VENDETTA" Music by Dario Marianelli


Varèse Sarabande is excited to announce the first-ever double LP release for V FOR VENDETTA – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on October 5, 2018. This premiere of the V FOR VENDETTA soundtrack features new jacket artwork of the masked face of V designed by “Ghoulish Gary” Pullin, who previously designed album covers for soundtracks to Wes Craven’s Scream and John Carpenter’s Christine. Like the thousands of “Guy Fawkes” masks donned in the film’s pivotal scene, a wearable mask comes included inside the package!

"Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot..." Emerging from the mind of comic book genius, Alan Moore, V FOR VENDETTA hit theaters in 2006 grossing over 70 million domestically and 62 million at the international box office. While the film was a success, it is the “Guy Fawkes” mask worn by the character V that has become the modern cultural symbol of uprising against totalitarianism and corporate greed.

With score by Oscar winner, Dario Marianelli, the V FOR VENDETTA soundtrack features tracks from Cat Power and Antony and The Johnsons as well as a song from 1950’s Jazz artist, Julie London. Known for his work on period pieces such as Pride And Prejudice and Anna Karenina, composer Dario Marianelli won the Academy Award for the score to Atonement. Arguably Dario’s most culturally significant work is tied to the “Guy Fawkes” mask, an image for rebellion, most notably used by the online anarchist group, Anonymous.

V FOR VENDETTA is available on VOD in most major U.S. markets and recently joined the Netflix lineup as of October 1, 2018. Varèse Sarabande is excited to announce the first-ever vinyl release for V FOR VENDETTA – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on October 5, 2018. [www.varesesarabande.com]

Music.Film Recordings and Varèse Sarabande: "WHAT THEY HAD" Music by Danny Mulhern


Music.Film Recordings and Varèse Sarabande Records will digitally release What They Had – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on October 19th, which features an original score written by composer Danny Mulhern (Silent Witness, Princess Margaret: The Rebel Royal). The BLEECKER STREET film has received critical praise since it first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The New York Observer raves that What They Had is “compassionate and utterly engaging. A stellar ensemble.” Most recently, the film was an official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. What They Had will be released theatrically in the U.S. on October 19th.

“The score for What They Had needed to convey the warmth and intimacy of the family dynamic, alongside the tensions going on within their relationships. The music has an intimate, homespun atmosphere, and as the film moves through its narrative, the score opens out more and more. Working on this project allowed me yet another opportunity to collaborate with the incredible London Contemporary Orchestra,” says Danny.

Danny is grateful to have collaborated with the film’s writer and director Elizabeth Chomko, who wrote the story from personal experience. “Elizabeth has a clarity and calmness that instills confidence. She is a kindred spirit. Throughout the process, she encouraged me to write the kind of music I write for myself, supporting and encouraging my expression as an artist, and making me feel absolutely valued. I believe this was essential – in order for the music to stay connected to the complex emotions going on in the narrative. Ultimately, it also made the process extremely rewarding.”

About Danny Mulhern: Danny Mulhern is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer from London. He writes music for film and mostly works with small ensembles, mixing live instruments, synthesis and beats, combining contemporary classical with ambient/electronic.

Much of his recent work has been with members of the London Contemporary Orchestra on film scores and records, most recently the film, What They Had. A heart-wrenching family drama starring Hilary Swank, Michael Shannon, Blythe Danner and Robert Forster. Other Film and TV scores include long-running forensic crime drama Silent Witness (BBC Drama), BBC wildlife documentary strand The Natural World, major arts and science documentaries for the BBC including How Art Made The World and Alternative Medicine, plus entertainment shows with Derren Brown, Matt Lucas and Simon Pegg.

Other recent work includes an expose on Alt-Right organizations funded by #HopeNotHate, and a two-hour BBC biography of Princess Margaret. [

Varèse Sarabande: "SHINE"


Varèse Sarabande is excited to announce the SHINE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack releasing digitally on October 5, 2018 and on CD on November 16th. Salsa was born on the streets of Spanish Harlem before transcending to a global audience, and the Fania label was the catalyst. The soundtrack to Shine mines the tremendous Fania catalog, featuring songs from Willie Colón, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri and the Fania All-Stars among others.

SHINE is a story about two brothers, once renowned NYC salsa dancers, now on opposing ends of neighborhood gentrification, who must face each other in the shadow of their father’s death and a family legacy in the Spanish Harlem arts community. SHINE is a film that showcases the culture and tradition within the Nuyorican community with salsa music and street dance as a way of life. The dance defines the film’s central characters and echoes the story plot lines of seduction and love to anger and betrayal. The soundtrack to SHINE dives into the Fania catalog, and features many lesser known, but no less incredible songs.  It serves as not only a great introduction for those unfamiliar with salsa, but also a logical next step for fans looking to deepen their appreciation.

Dominican-born composer and bandleader Johnny Pacheco and Attorney Jerry Masucci founded Fania in 1964. Fania’s roster includes nearly all the original salsa greats; Willie Colón, Celia Cruz, Rubén Blades, Héctor Lavoe and many others.  Even salsa stars affiliated with other labels such as Tito Puente and Eddie Palmieri made great music with Fania during their careers.

Intrada: "ANOTHER STAKEOUT" Music Composed and Conducted by ARTHUR B. RUBINSTEIN


In honor of composer Arthur B. Rubinstein who passed away earlier this year, Intrada is proud to present his colorful, spirited score to the 1993 sequel, Another Stakeout starring Richard Dreyfuss, Emilio Estevez and Rosie O'Donnell. In the first film, Stakeout, Chris Lecce (Dreyfuss) and Bill Reimers (Estevez) pair as comically quarrelsome Seattle detectives who stake out the ex-girlfriend of an escaped con, only for Lecce to fall head-over-heels in love with the woman they are surveilling. Six years later, Another Stakeout heats up with a literal bang as hit man Tony Castellano (Miguel Ferrer) attempts to blow up Lu Delano (Cathy Moriarty), the star witness against a Mafia boss. When Delano subsequently vanishes, zealous A.D.A. Gina Garrett (O’Donnell) recruits Lecce and Reimers to stake out the lake district where Delano is believed to be hiding.

Rubinstein’s score for Another Stakeout is distinguished from its predecessor in several ways, one of which is scope. As a budget eighties actioner, the original movie had a synth-heavy score with a pronounced pop vibe. The sequel also employs synth and pop elements, but with a nearly ninety-member orchestra at the composer’s disposal. The difference is immediately apparent in the main title, with its spellbinding arpeggios and sumptuous dark strings. The film relies on its own catalogue of motifs. First is the suspenseful theme introduced in the main title. Second is a muscular action theme, related to the motif for the actual stakeout. Finally, there is a heartstring-tugging theme for Lecce and Maria that spotlights the colors of guitar and flute. Though not heard frequently—it appears about as often as Maria herself—this is one of Rubinstein’s loveliest melodies.

Rubinstein scored the opening portion in a serious vein, then fashioned his score to match the amiable dynamics of the two principal stars. The soundtrack for Another Stakeout plays as two distinct scores. Common thematic ideas and harmonic devices are shared in both styles of writing and the result is an unusually strong cohesiveness within a widely diverse hour of music. Intrada prepared this premiere release from the 2″ 24-track masters recorded over four days in late June 1993 by veteran John Richards at Todd-AO Studios with the composer conducting.

Olive Films: "INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS" [1956]: (OLIVE SIGNATURE)


“They’re already here! You’re next!” With these chilling words, Invasion of the Body Snatchers sounded a clarion call to the dangers of conformity, paranoia, and mass hysteria at the heart of 1950s American life. Considered one of the greatest science fiction films ever made, Invasion of the Body Snatchers stars Kevin McCarthy (Academy Award® nominee, Best Supporting Actor, Death of A Salesman – 1952) as Miles Bennell, a doctor in a small California town whose patients are becoming increasingly overwrought, accusing their loved ones of being emotionless imposters. They’re right! Plant-like aliens have invaded Earth, taking possession of humans as they sleep and replicating them in giant seed pods. Convinced that a catastrophic epidemic is imminent, Bennell, in a terrifying race for his life, must warn the world of this deadly invasion of the pod people before it’s too late. 


Invasion of the Body Snatchers, directed by the accomplished Don Siegel (Dirty Harry, The Shootist) and co-starring Dana Wynter (Airport), Carolyn Jones (A Hole in the Head), Larry Gates (The Sand Pebbles) and King Donovan (The Enforcer), was photographed by Academy Award nominee Ellsworth Fredericks (Best Cinematography, Sayonara – 1958) with production design by Academy Award winner Ted Haworth (Best Art Direction, Sayonara – 1958).

An elite squad from an anti-drug enforcement agency stages a massive drug bust in the slums of Manila in the action-packed thriller BUYBUST, hitting digital, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD October 16 from Well Go USA Entertainment. After the mission goes south, the squad must fight their way out of the slums with “a body count that’s so ever-spiraling it could make Quentin Tarantino quiver, and enough bone-crunching brawls to outstrip those of the no-holds-barred Indonesian actioner The Raid,” (Clarence Tsui, The Hollywood Reporter). Directed by Erik Matti (On the Job), BUYBUST stars Anne Curtis, Brandon Vera, Victor Neri, Arjo Atayde, Levi Ignacio, Nonie Buencamino, Lao Rodriguez, Alex Calleja, Joross Gamboa, Sheenly Gener, Mara Lopez, AJ Muhlach, Tarek El Tayech, Maddie Martinez, Ricky Pascua, Nafa Hilario, Ian Ignacio and Mikey Alcaraz. Bonus materials includes a “Making of” featurette, footage from the BUYBUST panel at the 2018 Comic Con and an optional English language soundtrack.


After surviving the slaughter of her entire squad in a drug raid compromised by dirty cops, anti-narcotics special operative Nina Manigan (Anne Curtis), is eager to go head-to-head with the drug cartels that hold a bloody grip on Manila. But when her new mission in the city’s most dangerous slum goes south, the angry civilians turn on her squad. Trapped between a brutal drug gang and hordes of bloodthirsty citizens, their only option is to fight their way out, turning one claustrophobic street at a time into a symphony of apocalyptic violence.
