Screamworks Records presents its latest exotic genre offering, the independent Australian giallo thriller by co-writer/director Sam Barrett. Sororal tells the story of Cassie (Amanda Woodhams), an average girl tormented by visions of terrifying murders. Her life is thrown into disarray when a mysterious detective comes to her with a bombshell: he reveals that the visions are depictions of real murders that she couldn’t possibly have seen. Cassie’s pain now has a face, and she must stop the killing at all costs. The twisted, childlike killer targets Cassie’s loved ones, and the race is on to stop her. Cassie is thrown together with her former lover as they scramble towards a shocking revelation that will change everything.

The thrilling score for Sororal was nominated in the category of Best Original Music at the 26h West Australian Screen Awards. The music is written by Christopher de Groot, a Melbourne based composer, multi-instrumentalist and improviser. Primarily a pianist with a background in jazz and classical composition de Groot has a strong interest in music for film having scored several feature films. His more recent credits include a new score for Dimitri Kirsanoff’s 1927 masterpiece MénilmontantThe Director’s Cutwhich won the Western Australian Screen Award for its music and Sam Barrett previous movie, Esoterica.

As the genre suggests, Sororal is inspired by the sound of Italian giallo scores, including the works of Dario Argento’s own favorites like Goblin and Ennio Morricone. The diverse score combines electronic and acoustic resources, including choral music recorded at the St Paul’s Catholic Church in Perth. Christopher de Groot’s music is some of the most refreshing and eclectic horror music to be heard in a contemporary film – while it’s paying tribute to its genre predecessors, it is also totally unique, challenging work with and highly original concepts that properly compliment the inherent nastiness of the giallo.
