Los Angeles - October 1st, 2009 - Award-winning composer Jesper Kyd (Assassin's Creed series, Hitman series, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men) has scored the original soundtrack to STAUNTON HILL, a visceral thriller scheduled for DVD release by Anchor Bay Entertainment on October 6th. STAUNTON HILL is directed by G. Cameron Romero, the son of legendary cult filmmaker George A. Romero, who is following in his father's fearful footsteps as a master of terror and suspense.

When a group of hikers take off for a weekend of fun and adventure in a remote mountain region, they unwittingly stumble across the Staunton family - for whom the hill is named - and find themselves at the mercy of a depraved, diabolical brood that will stop at nothing to rid their property of these "trespassers."

To portray the rustic and unhinging experience of the decrepit Staunton family farm, Kyd composed a gripping instrumental score manipulated with industrial sounds and subversive ambience. The score evokes a deep sense of isolation and impending breakdown which spirals into distorted frenzy.

"Jesper is probably the only person who could have scored STAUNTON HILL," says film director G. Cameron Romero. "There are a lot of different nuances to the film and I couldn't have gotten those points across without his thought process and talents."

Released in time for the Halloween season, Cameron Romero's STAUNTON HILL stars Kathy Lamkin ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "No Country for Old Men"), Cristen Coppen ("Road Trip," "Art School Confidentia"), Kiko Ellsworth ("Heroes," "Dexter") and Cooper Huckabee ("Space Cowboys," Tobe Hooper's The Funhouse").

Spotlighted by The Hollywood Reporter and hailed as a 'Leading Composer' by Electronic Musician, Kyd has received several awards and nominations from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), Hollywood Music Awards, Billboard and MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). Kyd currently resides in Burbank, California and is represented by the Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency. For soundtrack samples visit
