Mark McKenzie scoring "The Last Sin Eater"

After conducting movie scores for most of his career, Mark McKenzie has finally begun to make a full shift into the other side of the coin: composing the music. I'm going to watch an early screening of the movie The Ultimate Gift (later this month) which features an original score by McKenzie, so I'll give you my thoughts about the music as heard in film. The rest of you can wait till Spring of next year to watch the movie when it comes out in theatres! :-P

While my favorite Mckenzie soundtrack is Dragonheart: A New Beginning (sound clip), this latest news about him taking on the score for The Last Sin Eater sounds pretty intriguing. The plotline (as quoted from IMDB) goes like this:

In 1850s Appalachia, 10-year-old CADI FORBES feels responsible for her little sister's death, so she searches out the one man she feels can take away her sin -- The Sin Eater. But in her quest for redemption, Cadi uncovers a dark secret that threatens to divide her family and community.

The score (I'm predicting) will be more of a cross between the country twangs of The Ultimate Gift and the louder symphonic qualities of the aforementioned Dragonheart score. Decent, three and a half star quality.

Mark McKenzie has actually scored quite a few films, but then again the AFI aren't about to honour Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde and Warlock: The Armageddon. (He's done TV work as well.)
