I wouldn't call this a brilliant work, but I actually quite like it. The harsh suspense cues are pretty creepy due to Elfman's fascinating rhythmic and instrumental tendencies, and I quite liked the themes themselves. Some of it is a tough listen, but it's actually quite dense compared to the usual for these genres, and the score's dark, torn-up fragments for the narrative is well handled. I put this at 3.5 stars.
