Graeme Revell's ambient-electronic score for Pitch Black remained unreleased until Super Tracks coupled it with the composer's Bride Of Chucky, a satirical riff influenced by Marco Beltrami's Scream 2 by way of Hans Zimmer's Broken Arrow.
Pitch Black was inexplicably desired by the film music collector market. I say that because the score is a series of anonymous electronic hums and pulses, rarely rising to more than that. As a listening experience it fails miserably, but perhaps the legions of Pitch Black cult fans will appreciate it.
Bride Of Chucky doesn't work much better. Unlike Child's Play 2, which featured at least a sprinkle of live orchestral content, Bride is entirely peformed on synths. Not scary, and not really meant to be, Bride Of Chucky is more a leering winkfest, and Revell's score is more playful than frightful.
Sorry, file deleted!
