Milan Records will also release the soundtrack for Fear Street Part 3: 1666 by Beltrami, Anna Drubich and Trumpp on Friday, July 16, coinciding with the film’s wide release date on Netflix. Fear Street Part 1: 1994 and Fear Street Part 2: 1978 are available to watch on Netflix now.
“The great thing about the Fear Street trilogy is that all of the movies take place in different time periods, and [Director] Leigh [Janiak] really encouraged me to lean into that aspect,” says composer MARCO BELTRAMI, who worked across all three installments in the film trilogy. “The first film installment, 1994, was heavily inspired by the Scream trilogy movies of Wes Craven, so I was able to revisit the scores that gave me my start in this business. In the second film, 1978, we got to channel the iconic scores of Jerry Goldsmith and his use of woodwinds and percussion in the orchestra. It was a great opportunity to flex this muscle without using any synthesizers. The third movie, 1666, is, ironically, perhaps the most modern score of the bunch. It’s a stripped-down ensemble of a nonet of strings, percussion, choir and electronics. Overall, throughout the course of the past year, Marcus, Brandon, Anna and I wrote over four hours of music, all of it inspired by our amazingly talented director Leigh Janiak! We hope you will enjoy.”
