​The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett set to score new horror film

The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett has taken a turn into the world of film, scoring Netflix’s brand new horror film due for release this year, Choose Or Die.

The electronic musician, best known for his part in the British group The Prodigy, has composed an "edgy and atmospheric” soundtrack for the new film landing on the streaming platform next month.

Choose Or Die features Sex Education's Asa Butterfield, The 100's Lola Evans, Sherlock Holmes' Eddie Marsan, Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Robert Englund, and more cast from a pool of British actors.

Previously titled CURS>R before its name change, Choose Or Die is said to be a “dark twist on the ‘80’s gaming obsession”.

"Tempted by a chance to win unclaimed prize money, two friends reboot a mysterious 1980s video game and step into a surreal world of next-level terror,” reads the film’s description.

“In pursuit of an unclaimed $125,000 prize, a broke college dropout (Lola Evans) decides to play an obscure, 1980s survival computer game. But The Game curses her, and she’s faced with dangerous choices and reality-warping challenges.”

Liam Howlett provides a roaring electronic score for the film, tinged with The Prodigy’s typically punky and recognisable sound catered to the horror flick.

Although this is The Prodigy member’s first time scoring a film, the group are no stranger to the movie realm. The band’s tracks have previously been used in films such as The Matrix, Kick-Ass and Repo Men.

A recent foray into film saw the group land on the Fast and Furious 9 soundtrack with the re-imagined 1997 track ‘Breathe’ in collaboration with Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA.

Choose Or Die lands on Netflix on April 15. Watch the trailer below.
