  7. Trent Reznor, Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman and more Composers for THR’s Roundtable | Oscars 2015

    Marco Beltrami (The Homesman), Danny Elfman (Big Eyes), John Powell (How To Train Your Dragon 2), Trent Reznor (Gone Girl) and Hans Zimmer (Interstellar) join THR’s Kevin Cassidy to discuss the process behind scoring the top films of the year.

    "Because everyone in the film grew up, I thought maybe the music should," John Powell said of his experience during his creation of the score of "How to Train Your Dragon 2." "Films are like icebergs, you have them at a certain point where they all look like they’re all in a row but then they all start to move and they start to flow," Danny Elfman, composer of "Big Eyes" shares about his experience creating the score for the motion picture. "There wasn’t a lot of room for misdirection and it just added a level of tension that I can hear in the music, which may be a good thing," Trent Reznor, the "Gone Girl" composer, dishes about the music that surrounded the Oscar-nominated drama.

  9. Corridor Dread: A History of Institutional Fear

    Everywhere on TV and film these days, cameras rove down corridors of schools, asylums, prisons, hospitals and offices, drifting through this confined space with emotions that range from low-level anxiety to overwhelming dread. Yet the corridor, an architectural invention of the eighteenth century, was meant to be a model of Enlightenment, of rational order and the logical distribution of space.

    Roger Luckhurst traces how these institutional spaces curdled in our fantasy life to become the locus of unease and horror, taking in evidence ranging from eighteenth century philosophers, via asylum and hospital design in the Victorian era, to present day horror films such as The Shining and It Follows.
