Title - 'Pride And Prejudice And Zombies' [OST]
Artist - Fernando Velazquez
'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' is a New York Times best selling book that has since turned into a phenomenon! Based on the best seller by Jane Austen, the PPZ franchise has spawned a graphic novel, a video game and now a major motion picture releasing on Feb 5th 2016.
In the brand new movie adaptation, 'Pride And Prejudice And Zombies' is a story about five sisters in 19th century England who must not only cope with the pressures to marry, but now also protect themselves from a growing population of zombies!
Composer Fernando Velazquez has made a name for himself in recent years, most recently score Crimson Peak, and Hercules, but he has definitely outdone himself here on this soundtrack, trust me.
If you have not seen the film, I won't give certain scenes away too indepthly, but suffice to say that in building, heart pounding moments like when during the climactic escape from the Church of St. Lazarus, Colonel Darcy puts Lydia Bennett on his black horse, chivalrously ordering to escape while he provides rearguard action, coupled with a scene set at Hingman Bridge (just after sunrise) we see Jane Bennett riding alongside Lydia (away from, well, you can only guess), it's 100% Velazquez's score moments that create the perfect sonic backdrop to some uproarious on screen moments.
In closing, this young Spanish composer Velázquez, who since first coming to international prominence in 2007 with 'The Orphanage,' and who has since split his time equally between Europe and Hollywood, really knows how to bring a film to life. Which, in the case of these zombies, was a true feat unto itself, of course!
