The Mist
Music by Mark Isham
Varese Sarabande VSD 6873
8 Tracks 32:06 mins

This latest adaptation of a Stephen King story sounds a little like The Fog in concept. It has been scored by ever-busy composer Mark Isham and features suitably mysterious and suspenseful moments, giving way to violent, percussive/electronic action. Performance of the music is credited to The Sodden Dog Electronic Arts Society, suggesting it is all achieved through synths and samples.
It is a brief score at a little over 20 minutes, plus the Perry/Gerrard composition "The Host of Seraphim," performed by Dead Can Dance, with additional material by Isham, which presumably must have been used in the film. As a filler, and quite out of character with what has gone before, is "The Vicious Blues," from Isham's score to Mrs. Parker and The Vicious Circle.
