    Well, he’s finally done it. I remembered J.N.H. saying that at least twice Shyamlana had said the film he was making would require little or no scoring and eventually the respective films ended up with more music than previously thought. Now he’s gone and done it but with one piece. But sadly without J.N.H.

      Hopefully the two will work together on future projects…

      It’s Blumhouse. They probably didn’t have JNH money in the budget.

    I’m really sad, some of JNH’s best scores were for Shyamalan movies. I hope these two continue their partnership on future movies.

    Poor Cantelon… Such a great composer deserves better than this crap.

    Does anyone know the eerily instrumental piano tune played during the closing credits ? I know the name of the original , but it’s not the same as the one played during the closing credits
