FIEND was scored over a weekend without sleep in the Dohler families basement. Woznicki recorded the films music on a Niagara field recorder under the direction of Don Dohler, totally improvised as the movie played in real time. The film’s music ranges from elegant piano pieces to dark and unnerving tracks played on a combination of synthesizers, as well as modified toys, that give this soundtrack its distinctive atmosphere.
FILM DESCRIPTION - An evil spirit Possesses the corpse of a diseased man. It must absorb the life energy of the living, in order for the corpse to not rot away. It moves to the suburbs, where, a neighbor begins to suspect something isn't right.
