Review: Hell’s Kitty Soundtrack Is A Purrfect Fit

 

If you haven’t seen the movie Hell’s Kitty you’re missing out. What’s not to love about a horror flick that centers on a man and his possessed cat?

 

 

Written, directed by, and starring Nicholas Tana, Hell’s Kitty features cameos from some of horror’s biggest names, including Doug Jones, Bill Oberst Jr., Michael Berryman, Elissa Dowling, John Franklin, Courtney Gains, Nina Hartley, Lynn Lowrey, Dale Midkiff (interview), Victoria De Mare, and more!

Not only is the movie great, but it has a killer soundtrack. From composer Richard Albert comes a soundtrack that features a wide range of tunes that sets the mood for Hell’s Kitty. From heavy metal to new wave, the music is a purrfect fit. With a feline theme, the soundtrack is ideal for both cat lovers and anyone who likes a funky sound.

Appearing on the soundtrack is the Hell’s Kitty theme song, “My Pussy’s Possessed”, which is used as the central score throughout the film.

MY PUSSY’S POSSESSED was inspired by my love of the whimsical, haunting compositional style of Danny Elfman, those quirky but memorable Meow Mix commercials from the late 70s, and the stirring flying Monkey chants from The Wizard of Oz. The CATchy combination of rock, death metal, and (even) cheesy love songs, which the album contains, is enough to fulfill nine lives, and have you dancing so hard, you may not always land on your feet.” Writer-director Nicholas Tana has stated.

 

 

The music for the soundtrack was created as an international collaboration between writer/director, Nicholas Tana, who lives in The United States, and composer, Richard Albert, from Germany.

The choice of musical styles available on the soundtrack is meant to reflect the bizarre and twisted taste of the movie’s main antagonist, Angel, a fiery hell cat with a penchant for ear-shattering rock songs, and a weakness for cheesy 80’s love songs.” Composer Richard Albert said.

Also featured on the Hell’s Kitty soundtrack is “Brain Adamz”, and “Down Below”, and the pop-opera song, “Tonight You’re All I Need”performed by HermanoBlanco (Nicaragua), produced by Richard Albert, with lyrics written by Nicholas Tana. “Tonight You’re All I Need” is reminiscent of artificial fireplaces, candles, and hallmark cards; a tribute to 70s love songs designed to get you laid. And it’s the most romantic love song ever written (for a cat, anyway).” 

Brain Adamz” is what Brian Adams might sound like if he played in a Death Metal band,  is how Albert describes the band’s sound.

Richard Albert has composed for a quite few films, including Hide in the Light, Hospice, Losing Touch, and Sticky: A (Self) Love Story, just to name a few. To learn more about Albert and his music please visit his website.
