    Well that’s unexpected but also YEAAAAAAH

    • Dylan E. says:

      Well, Trent Reznor is one of the most 90s musicians to ever grace the decade.

      And with the 90s-like atmosphere and soundtrack choices the flick seems to be going for so far, Trent Reznor scoring this makes absolute sense.

    I kinda get it but Reznor’s scores a more atmospheric and calm this one needs to be loud and modern but I love when composers do different styles
