A Farewell To Arm
March 4, 2021
Notefornote Music To Release 50 STATES OF FRIGHT Soundtrack Featuring Christopher Young’s “The Golden Arm” Episode Score
Two lovebirds. One awful accident. Heather offers Dave a helping hand. Too bad she may never see that hand again.
So goes the premiere episode of the Quibi original series, 50 STATES OF FRIGHT, which debuted last summer. The horror anthology series, executive produced by Sam Raimi, explores stories based on urban legends from different places in the United States, taking viewers deeper into the horrors that lurk just beneath the surface. The project also marked the eighth collaboration in 20 years between director/producer Raimi and composer Christopher Young, who scored the Raimi-directed first episode, “The Golden Arm.” That premiere episode features Rachel Brosnahan (THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL) as a Michigan woman who loses her arm in a lumber accident and has it replaced by a golden appendage, with unsavory results. This episode highlights the brilliance of Christopher Young to the fullest.
The CD is a limited edition of 500 copies; the CD/download bundle can be pre-ordered now; CDs are expected to arrive the week of April 19; the download is sent upon receipt of the order. Every CD order will be receiving a personalized Christopher Young autograph.
