about

This music was originally created with the sole intention of being heard as a transparent companion to the dialog, sound design and imagery of the feature film Ginger Snaps 2 - Unleashed. Separating the soundtrack from the film gives my work an unexpected parallel existence. Given the opportunity to prepare the mixed cues for the audio CD, I chose to ignore the chronological order of the movie and instead edit the material into a structure designed for a listening experience. Some tracks have been chopped up, some left as is, and others omitted entirely. A couple that didn't survive the final film mix were resurrected from the editing floor and found a surprise afterlife on this disc.

David Hollands for efilm critic (excerpt)

Although I was initially disappointed that genius composer Michael Shields would not be returning to score the sequel, that disappointment vanished when I heard the fantastic work of Kurt Swinghammer here. His music is exciting, foreboding, terrifying, and emotional all at the same time. It is modern, cold and technological, perfectly reflecting Brigette’s condition for most of the film as well as giving jaw-dropping tension to the many suspense moments in this film. When action begins, synthesized drum beats immerge on the soundtrack, and they attack us relentlessly, never allowing us to lean back for a second. Many passages of Swinghammer’s little beast are creepy and nerve-jangling. The music will literally make you stare sweating at the screen, leaning forward ever more in anticipation of what will come next. And that’s the most clever thing about this score: it makes you lean forward, only to then have you kicked after you realise too late that it was a trick to make you lean right towards a jump scare
