In one way or another, we’ve all experienced the zombie apocalypse. No matter how unlikely it may seem, the reason the idea of an undead apocalypse is so terrifying isn’t just because one can’t take their mind off the thought of it happening. The reason is that, regardless of whether or not one can imagine it actually happening, the very thought of it vividly reflects the change in the world, the breakdown of our social norms and what we’re left to rely on or have to fight for.
The most prolific horror genre, zombie movies, have been around for over thirty years. It’s hard to believe they’ve lasted this long, but it’s been a well-known fact that zombie movies are what make or break a horror franchise. In recent years, the zombie sub-genre has become increasingly popular, as more and more zombie movies are produced every year. For example, in the last five years, there have been five zombie movies nominated for the Oscars. Every year, there’s a new zombie movie that is released, and every year, they become better and better. This year, Army of the Dead is the most interesting zombie movie we’ve seen in a long time.
“Army of the Dead” is an upcoming zombie film based on the popular video game series, Left 4 Dead (L4D). It is directed by David J. Smith and stars Christopher Meloni, Martin Starr, Lili Simmons, and Vincent D’Onofrio. Army of the Dead is the first in a planned four-part series of zombie films and was released into theaters on April 17, 2021..

The album is available now and contains the music Holkenborg wrote for the movie Zombie Heist from director Zack Snyder. The project is the latest in a longstanding creative collaboration between Snyder and Holkenborg, who most recently worked on Zack Snyder’s Justice League and began their collaboration in 2014 with 300, written and produced by Snyder : Rise Of An Empire. The duo also worked together on the films Man of Steel and Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice. 2021 was already a big year for Holkenborg, whose epic score for Zack Snyder’s Justice League was one of the longest ever, followed by a record-breaking score for the blockbuster Godzilla vs Kong. Army of the Dead is already showing in theaters and on Netflix.
Composer Tom Holkenborg talks about the soundtrack:
A zombie heist movie in Vegas with Zack and Netflix, how could I refuse? Army of the Dead was a chance to start something completely new and fresh, which of course is ironic for a movie about undead! It was a really fun project because we had to break the rules and reimagine the sound of a zombie movie. It’s very nice!
The Army of the Dead, directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Justice League), is set after a zombie outbreak that turns Las Vegas into ruins and shuts out the rest of the world. When Scott Ward (Dave Bautista), a former zombie war hero who now makes burgers in the suburb of the city he now calls home, approaches casino boss Blai Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada) with an offer: He must infiltrate a zombie-infested quarantine zone and grab the $200 million stored in a vault under a strip before the city is blown up by the government in 32 hours. With almost nothing to lose, Ward takes up the challenge by assembling a motley crew of experts for the heist. A ticking clock, an impenetrable vault and a horde of smarter, faster alpha zombies are closing in, and in the biggest heist ever, only one thing is certain: The survivors take everything.
Although I found the film itself rather boring, I decided to give the soundtrack a chance. I should have known better, because the soundtrack to Army of the Dead gave me no emotion. With the exception of one moment in Not Here where I think the music fits well, the Army of the Dead soundtrack is dull, dull, dull, etc. The biggest crime is that most of this music is boring. I’ve often said that it’s hard to ruin music in a movie, and with a zombie heist movie, that process should be pretty easy: All you need is an action element to support what’s happening on screen.
Apparently someone slipped that idea through their fingers, because most of this soundtrack does exactly the opposite. Much of this music is eerily slow and dark, which is totally unnecessary for a zombie heist movie. I understand that Holkenborg wanted to rethink the sound of a zombie movie, but they weren’t really meant to sound like that. It’s simple: If the music of a movie soundtrack irritates me, something has gone wrong.
I can now say that Army of the Dead is one of my biggest disappointments of the year, because not only is the movie bad, but the soundtrack is just as bad. Although, as I said, there is a bright spot in Not Here. In this song, I like the way the music builds to an increasing crescendo, which I think is the only moment in the film where the music and visuals are perfectly matched.
In all conscience, I can’t recommend the Army of the Dead soundtrack, but if you watch it and like it, I’m happy for you. For me personally, it doesn’t work and is one of the worst soundtracks I’ve heard in a long time.
