Robert Allaire scores “Lord of the Flies”-ish horror thriller THE PARK

The forthcoming horror thriller THE PARK tells the story of a mysterious virus that starts killing all adults, leaving society to be governed by children living on borrowed time. After the adult population is wiped out, rival kids battle for control of an abandoned theme park. Danger lurks around every corner, and they must do whatever it takes to survive their hellish Neverland.

The film is scored by Robert Allaire, a Los Angeles based composer whose work at the intersection of music and sound design has garnered accolades from LA Weekly and The New York Times. His unique style fusing orchestral strings with noisy electronics, analog synthesizers, and instruments played as they were never designed to be played, has been heard in films, video games, and over 2,000 episodes of television. Recent credits include BETTER CALL SAUL PRESENTS: SLIPPIN’ JIMMY, MGM’s STARGATE: ORIGINS, SXSW official selections SEE YOU THEN and HYPOCHONDRIAC, and several themes for video game League of Legends. In addition to his own projects, Robert has composed additional music for AMERICAN HORROR STORY and NBC’s IRONSIDE. For more  details, see his website

XYZ Films will release THE PARK on North American VOD March 2nd. A tale of apocalyptic adventure and survival set within a long-abandoned amusement park, the thriller, which occurs in a world without adults, stars an amazing ensemble of young talent including Chloe Guidry, Nhedrick Jabier, and Carmina Garay. It’s “Lord of the Flies” in an amusement park. James Emanuel Shapiro, XYZ Films’ Executive Vice President of U.S. Distribution, notes, “THE PARK is one of the most provocative genre movies I’ve seen in some time. Shal’s debut is one that makes one take immediate notice. You have to see this movie!”
