Buy it... if you love the great adventure scores of John Williams and David Arnold in the 1980's and 1990's and seek an intelligent, challenging extension of that sound for a large-scale Danish fantasy production.

Avoid it... if fantasy/horror scores featuring unrelentingly powerful and monumental orchestral and choral performances are simply too overwhelming for your tastes.

Island of Lost Souls (De Fortabte Sjæles Ø): (Jane Antonia Cornish) The second film from director and writer Nikolaj Arcel, Island of Lost Souls is reportedly the largest children's fantasy film ever to come from Denmark. The Danish-language adventure was built as a tribute to the classic 1980's movies of Steven Spielberg, intentionally infusing American blockbuster magic from yesteryear into a story inherently strong on Danish sensibilities. The story involves a group of diverse youngsters in a coastal Danish town who attempt to save one of their own when he is accidentally possessed by the spirit of a Wiccan from a hundred years prior who is engaged in an ongoing battle with a powerful, dark magician who happens to be a soul-corrupting necromancer. Now the kids, led by the possessed boy's sister (a Wiccan herself), join the battle to save him and, possibly, the whole world. Dark forests and mystical concepts meet modern technology and the kid next door, thrusting Island of Lost Souls into competition with Harry Potter and the flurry of other related fantasy films pouring out of Hollywood in the 2000's. The movie features a stunning 623 special effects shots and, in Arcel's spirit of raising the good old American adventure films of the 80's from the dead, a sweeping and massive orchestral score. On board the production came British composer Jane Antonia Cornish, a talented musician who wrote her first symphony at the age of 12 and chose to explore composition for film while in college. With a few independent films and commercials to her name after graduation, she re-located to Los Angeles, where her career as an orchestrator included work on a handful of notable scores. Her score for Five Children and It in 2005 won a BAFTA award, though the lack of an album release failed to gain her much attention for the score in America. For Island of Lost Souls, she would travel to Denmark and record with the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, and the enthusiasm with which she approached the project is easily evident in the quality of the score and its recording.
