When discussing the score, Alexander says, “Dreamcatcher is a slick, stylish, and smart film. I really wanted the score to reflect that. A return to my ‘rock roots’, I was able to craft a hauntingly seductive guitar tone that dances around thick, indulgent synth and blunt-force percussion. An innovative, textured, and exciting score that’s ultimately a love letter to 90’s ensemble horror, Dreamcatcher should leave your heart pounding and foot tapping.”
The official synopsis for Dreamcatcher reads: Dylan, known to his fans as DJ Dreamcatcher, is on the brink of global stardom. Everything changes the night of Cataclysm, an underground music festival, where two estranged sisters and their friends meet Dylan. After a drug fueled gruesome event, things begin to spiral into a 48-hour whirlwind of violence and mayhem.
