(Los Angeles, CA) September 13, 2012—Award-winning composer Christopher Young scores Summit Entertainment’s horror film Sinister. Opening in theaters on Friday, October 5, 2012, Sinister stars Academy Award nominated actor Ethan Hawke (Training Day) and Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent). Sinister is the story of a true-crime novelist who discovers how and why a family was murdered in his new home, though his discoveries put his entire family in the path of a supernatural entity. The film marks Young’s second collaboration with director Scott Derrickson who he previously worked with for the gruesome film The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Christopher Young used all electronic eerie and chilling sounds to compose the score for Sinister. Young’s gripping composing style has created many spine-tingling scores to horror films including Drag Me to Hell, Hellraiser, and The Grudge film series.

With over 100 credits to his name, award-winning composer Christopher Young has a unique and imaginative approach to scoring that is heard throughout his expansive credit list. Young has written music for romantic comedies including When in Rome to thrillers including Spiderman 3. Young’s score for his most recent project, The Rum Diary, was jazz infused with improvisational qualities, reminiscent of bachelor pad music from the 1960s. For his work on the film The Vagrant, Young incorporated breathing effects into the score which elevated the sounds to an eerier plain. He also created an offbeat theme for The Man Who Knew Too Little, starring Bill Murray, and employed an 80-piece orchestra for the film Creation. Young’s other film credits include The Hurricane and Shipping News.

Christopher Young has received numerous accolades throughout his celebrated career. He was honored at the Temecula International Film & Music Festival with the award for Outstanding Career Achievement. He has been nominated for two Emmys and received both Golden Globe and Broadcast Film Critics Association Award nominations for The Shipping News. Young has also received BMI’s highest honor, The Richard Kirk Career Achievement Award. In addition to his busy film-composing schedule, Young has taught at USC since the early nineties and bought a housing building to offer free residency to fledgling young composers who come to Los Angeles.
