Soundtrack Swap: Psycho and It Follows

Both Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho’ and David Robert Mitchell’s ‘It Follows’ integrate music heavily into the experience and emotion of each film. In our new video series “Soundtrack Swap” we exchange the soundtracks of two films.

In this case it’s Hitchcock’s thriller classic from 1960, and David Robert Mitchell’s highly praised film from 2014 that mixes art-house and horror. Two films 54 years apart each take on a slightly new life when their soundtracks are exchanged.

What score do you prefer and what works best for you in this video, if anything at all? Please let us know in the comments and tell us what some of your favorite horror film soundtracks are!
