Composer Bear Mccreary Re-Visits The Rest Stop

La-La Land Records To Release Soundtrack For Rest Stop: Don't Look Back. The soundtrack for Rest Stop: Don't Look Back will be released by La-La Land Records on October 21, 2008. Composer Bear McCreary, who also scored the first Rest Stop film, composed the score.

The soundtrack album also includes five songs penned by McCreary: "Rattlesnake on the Highway" and "Lonely Woman performed by Brendan "Bt4" McCreary, who sang "All Along the Watchtower" on the Battlestar Galactica Season 3 soundtrack, "Jesus, He Forgives You Too" and "Down Home Salvation" performed by Rev. Buford "Buck" Davis and His Minstrel Singers, and "All That Remains" performed by Raya Yarbrough, a song featured in both Rest Stop films as well as several episodes of Battlestar Galactica's third and fourth seasons.

Composer Bear McCreary is one of the top young composers working in Hollywood. His work on the television series Battlestar Galactica has been described as offering "some of the most innovative music on TV today," by Variety, and his blog www.bearmccreary.com/blog, which features in-depth inside looks at the process of scoring Battlestar Galactica, was called "one of the best blogs in the business. It's a fascinating look at the process of making music for film and television and the care he takes with aligning the score with the twists and turns of each character's plot lines," by The Hollywood Reporter.

McCreary also scores the hit series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles for Fox. His film credits include Wrong Turn 2 and the Rest Stop films. McCreary was among a handful of select proteges of late film music legend Elmer Bernstein (THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN) and is a classically trained composer with degrees in Composition and Recording Arts from the prestigious USC Thornton School of Music.

Shawn Papazian, who produced the first Rest Stop film, directed the sequel. "This time around, since I was at the helm, I wanted to add a dirtier, grittier flare to the score that was unique but in some way similar to the first Rest Stop, yet take it to another level of funk. Bear brilliantly discovered musically my jumbled rhetoric and brought the soul of the score to life," he describes. "We were able to unleash instruments that played beautifully and organically within the beats of horror that I feel will make this movie sound artistic in a way that genre movies of this nature have never sounded like before. He truly scored."

One year after running away from home, Nicole (Julie Mond) and Jesse (Joey Mendicino) are still missing. When Jesse's brother, Tom (Richard Tillman), returns home from active duty, he sets out with his friends Marilyn (Jessie Ward) and Jared (Graham Norris) to locate the lost couple. Their search leads them to the stretch of old highway with a mysterious Rest Stop, where they find themselves in the same predicament as Nicole and Jesse: confronting the madman (Brionne Davis) driving the menacing yellow truck. As their search continues, a run-in with the ubiquitous Winnebago Family leads Marilyn and Jared to ghostly encounters with Nicole. Meanwhile, Tom is kidnapped and tortured by the psycho, but upon his escape he uses the arsenal at his disposal to take his revenge. But bullets alone may not be enough to stop this sociopath bent on death and dismemberment.

So like Nicole and Jesse, Bear McCreary revisited Rest Stop. "In that movie, we established a rich and lush sonic soundscape, filled with distorted banjos, wailing electric bass and detuned country fiddle," said McCreary. "All these elements returned for Don't Look Back with a vengeance The sound I was going for was Lynyrd Skynyrd Trapped in Hell."

Warner Home Video presents Rest Stop: Don't Look Back available on DVD September 30, 2008. The original soundtrack will be available in stores or from www.lalalandrecords.com on October 21, 2008. Also available from La-La Land Records are the soundtracks for Battlestar Galactica Season One, Season Two, Season Three, Eureka, and Wrong Turn 2, also composed by Bear McCreary. La-La Land Records will be releasing the soundtracks for Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles later this year.
