Soundtrack Rating: 3/5
Never judge a soundtrack by its cover. Hot pink punk artwork lends LVK a grunge edge, but composer Debbie Wiseman instead opts for dead straight. Ahem. Taking her cue from Buffy and Hammer, Wiseman plays up the orchestral epic – violins tremble, cellos bellow and choirs mourn “oohs” and “aahs”. Only the track titles bite at convention, with crackers ‘Run You Bellends!’, ‘My aXe Girlfriend’ and ‘Whores of F***ing Hades, Prepare For F***ing Death!’. Still, the sonorous riffs are fittingly Gothic in scope, if wretchedly repetitive, rendering this disappointingly toothless.
