Who doesn’t love a little throwback exploitation realness?
My soundtrack to the totally fake film There’s Something Wrong with Sarah is a love letter to the godawful low-budget horror film soundtracks of the 70s and 80s.
This album has it all: dripping synths, ridiculous Tubular Bells ripoff piano themes, dadaist nonsense noise collages, and more.
Cut to a grainy 35-mm trailer with a low-voiced guy saying:
Sarah’s a normal, healthy 9 year-old girl — until recently. Her parents have started to think there might be something a bit off about their sweet little angel.
Where she used to joyously jump rope, now she just stares. Where she used to roller skate, now other kids avoid her strange aura. Where she used to solve puzzles, now she ponders the impenetrable mysteries of the human mind.
Hypnosis, telepathy, telekinesis; no one knows what she’s capable of next. One thing is for certain: there’s something wrong with Sarah.
