The Stylist – OST

Burning Witches Records in conjunction with Arrow Video are excited to announce the original motion picture soundtrack to The Stylist by Nicholas Elert.

Nicholas Elert captures the mood perfectly for the female led phychological horror. Full on atmospherics and lonely tinkling piano make up the backbone for this wonderfully dark score to become obsessed by.

We all dream of being someone else… but for Claire (Najarra Townsend, Contracted), that dream goes from an obsession to a living nightmare. Hairstylist by day, serial killer and collector of scalps by night, Claire’s lonely existence is thrown into turmoil when her regular client, Olivia (Brea Grant, After Midnight, Lucky), asks her to style her hair for her wedding day.
