Screamworks Records: "You Might Be the Killer" by Andrew Morgan Smith


ScreamWorks Records reteams with composer Andrew Morgan Smith to present his score for You Might Be the Killer, starring genre veterans Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods) and Alyson Hannigan (Buffy, the Vampire Slayer). When Sam (Kranz), the camp counselor suffering from blackouts finds himself surrounded by murder victims, he gets an uneasy feeling about the murders. When he turns to his horror movie enthusiast friend Chuck (Hannigan) for advice, the two of them figure out the only logical solution - what if Sam is  the killer and he might strike again? Who will stop him - and does he need stopping at all?

“You Might Be the Killer was a tremendously fun movie to work on,” says Andrew Morgan Smith about the project. “When I first met with the director, Brett, he was very interested in classic 80s orchestral scores. This was really exciting for me. Since the whole movie is a send up of classic slasher/horror movies, we needed a score that would do the same thing. With this in mind, I delved into that style and wrote a horror score that paid homage to these old movies and help it really nail that time period/genre. It's not often you get to play in the Jerry Goldsmith, Alan Silvestri, and Christopher Young sandbox, but You Might Be the Killer allowed me to do that.“ With its cheeky references to the decade of slashers, this might be a camp classic - pun fully intended.

Composer Andrew Morgan Smith studied composition and music media at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. As a media composer, he started his career writing for SyFy movies and has now branched out into Indie film and other TV content. His credits include such hit films for the channel as A Sort of Homecoming, Zombie Shark, and A Deadly Affair. Andrew is no stranger to the world of horror scoring - his music for Jeepers Creepers 3 is also available from ScreamWorks Records and Quartet Records.

The soundtrack has a digital release date of  December 14, 2018.On the link below, you can view a video, featuring a suite from the score: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJn_nhg5YKM]
