Straw Dogs Soundtrack [2011]

Straw Dog is a remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 movie of the same name. It tells the story of screenwriter David Summer (James Marsden) and his actress wife Amy (Kate Bosworth) returning to his hometown to sell the family house after her father's death. However things turn ugly after a rift developed between David and Amy due to her ex-boyfriend Charlie Venner (Alexander Skarsgard). It also caused a violent confrontation between David and Charlie. One day Amy was raped by Charlie and another man. At the same time David hit and killed a local girl while returning to home at night time.
Composer Larry Groupe , whose credits include works on movies such as "Nothing but the Truth", "Resurrecting The Champ" and the Oscar nominated "The Contender", gave the film it's much needed boost, considering the critics' review which had not been too kind. The music is a nice balance of country flavor and high-paced suspense thriller. Some pieces sound melancholic and at times, funereal but all in all the music brought out the characters' emotions pretty well.
