BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents the original motion picture soundtrack to PERKINS’ 14, featuring music composed by Kostas Christides, for the 2009 horror film directed by Craig Singer, written by Lane Shadgett and Jeremy Donaldson, starring Patrick O’Kane, Richard Brake, Michale Graves, Mihaela Mihut and Shayla Beesley.
PERKINS' 14 takes place in the small town of Stone Cove, Maine and is concerned with the stories of two men who live there. One is Ronald Perkins, a local psychiatrist who has been taken into police custody. Perkins is a suspect in the abduction of fourteen children over the last ten years. The other man is Dwayne Hopper, one of the town's deputy sheriffs. His son is one of the missing children. As Hopper interrogates Perkins, he learns that Perkins' parents were brutally murdered in their home when he was six years old and that he has been living in fear that the killers would some day return for him. Perkins reveals that he's been brainwashing the missing children, using methods of cult indoctrination to turn them into a unified army, to protect him from the men who killed his parents. While Perkins is being questioned, the other deputies accidentally release the missing children on Stone Cove and a night of terror begins as the fourteen children, now super-strong adults, tear the town apart with one thought on their mindsÉ Kill For Mr. Perkins.
To score PERKIN'S 14, director Craig Singer turned to composer Kostas Christides. The two already had a relationship after collaborating on DARK RIDE, SingerŐs previous feature film. Kostas' haunting and terrifying music for PERKINS' 14 includes writing for electric guitar, percussion and prepared piano.
