An interview with the master music composer

In an interview with Theo Green on his film, ‘House at the End of the Street’, he talks about ‘scoring horror’ for the horror genre of the film. “Films that play effectively on fears are a fascinating, frightening experience,” says composer, Theo Green. “Audiences get these very real physical reactions from the tension, shocks and fear when watching movies like that. More so than they do on a rollercoaster where they really are being physically thrown about. And the music has the instant ability to connect a viewer emotionally to a scene or a character, which is a part of producing those reactions. So that’s a big appeal, to be able to connect to an audience in such a visceral way,” he added. Theo Green is particularly fond of scoring horror music. He has done work for horror films like ‘Dread’ (2000), ‘Prowl’ (2010), and a previous collaboration with ‘House at the End of the Street’s’ director, Mark Tonderai, with 2008’s film ‘Hush.’ When asked about what particularly draws him to horror genre of films he replied, “Well, I love all kinds of movies and genres, but most of all I love it when films have the power to truly shock—I don’t mean jumps and scares, but deep emotional shocks that take days of thought to fully process. I think that can be a healthy, cathartic thing.” Green went on to say “I’ve always been in awe of 70’s films like ‘THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE’ (1974), Italian Giallo films, and also oddities like ‘THE WICKER MAN’ (1973), since way back when I was too young really! Maybe for that reason it’s hard to find films that have much surprise for me anymore. The scenes and ideas that get me most scared these days are often not in genre horror films.”
