Buy it... only if you have witnessed the film and have appreciated the music, and/or you are an absolute die-hard fan of the more mundane underscores from The X-Files.

Avoid it... if you value any resemblance of intelligent design, creative spark, or thoughtful inventiveness in your low-budget scores.

Disturbing Behavior: (Mark Snow) Unless you're a fan of actress Katie Holmes, for whom this would be her transition from television to the big screen, Disturbing Behavior offers absolutely nothing for the greater good. A horror/thriller story along the lines of Village of the Damned, director David Nutter's cheap scare tactics had trouble attracting even the teenage crowd, with a plot so convoluted and nonsensical that the film attempted to rely on non-existent visual stimulation to keep people entertained. The premise of the story is so ridiculous and malformed that it's hard to give any kind of synopsis, other than that a teenage society is divided between the group of "good" kids and the group of "bad" kids, and when a newcomer to town decides to join the "bad" group, a nonstop chase of fear and revenge ensues. Make sense to you? There's really no point to any of the action, and Disturbing Behavior strings you along from scare to scare without any intention of truly developing a personality or a purpose. The director was among the producers of the television hit The X-Files, and it's no surprise, therefore, that veteran alien conspiracy composer Mark Snow was hired to score Disturbing Behavior. Given that the motion picture debut of The X-Files would hit the theatres later in the year, expectations were high for Snow. Unfortunately, Disturbing Behavior swept Snow down into the same pool of muck that defined every other aspect of the film, and, as we all know, the motion picture score for The X-Files wasn't necessarily that impressive either. As for Disturbing Behavior, the purely synthetic score would largely be the performance of Snow himself, producing sounds that The X-Files fans will identify from the more drab, suspenseful moments of the show's run. Unfortunately for Snow, Disturbing Behavior sounds like a "worst of The X-Files" compilation, extending to become some of the most boring and lifeless music put onto a score album in quite some time.

NOTES AND QUOTES
The insert includes a short bio of Snow's career, as well as the following comments from director David Nutter about Snow's score:

    "Mark Snow's music can enhance the dramatic intent of the story, the scene and - most importantly - the moment. His ability to always know how much or how little has always impressed me.

    My own career began in music with dreams of doing what Mark does to perfection. At least now I can say that, after working with Mark Snow, that dream has come true at last."
