Daniel Licht is another composer seemingly "trapped" in the world of horror scores. However, I have to say it suits him just fine. While the film didn't do very well at the box office (I can't remember how long it was in theaters for, but it was short), Soul Survivors had an interesting premise and a rather enjoyable score to boot. After surviving a car accident, Cassandra (Melissa Sagemiller) is visited by spirits - and her friends try to get her to explore the dark side. Director Steve Carpenter went for a dreamlike quality to the film, and Licht captures that in the score just perfectly. A tender and emotional main theme stands out, even though it reminds me just a bit of something Christopher Young might write (incidentally, Licht took over for Young on the project). Nonetheless, the dreamlike quality is shattered only by traditional orchestral horror cues, accentuated with chorus and atmosphere. "Annabell is Dead" is a nice example of a track that will creep anyone out, with a nice bit of echoing chorus and orchestra. A soft a capella in "The Woods" is a stand-out track, and the album is capped off with a dark rock song, "The Other Side".
