I heard the music before I have seen the film and I was curious. Silvestri was never made a music like this before. But at the end I was glad that I have bought this CD. His music in What lies beneath is a little similar for Jerry Goldsmith's "The Haunting"(I'm a very big fan of Goldsmith's works but for me "What Lies Beneath" worked much better). The Main Title is only a minute long but it has the power of the album, the Panic Attack and the I Opened The Door has the most romantic moments (they could work in a romantic film). Ouija Board is the worst from the CD, but the best cue is You Know. The wind at the background is crepy, but at the end the wind players give you a heart attack. Forbidden Fruit is almost as good as You Know. The best is The Getaway wich more like the music of "Scream". It is very fast and rhythmic, more like an action film score. The firts 30 second in The Getaway You hear Bernard Herrman music from "Psycho". Reunited is only good for it's first 2 minutes. End Credits sum up the hole album and at the end Silvetri give us a fairy tale ending. The music is not working in the film as good as at the CD. Were you can hear the best moments nothing happens in the film. If someone liked the music of "The Sixth Sense" and "The Devil's Advocate", this album would be perfect for him/her.
