News Rapper RZA Created ‘Halloween’ Inspired Soundtrack for Netflix’s Slasher ‘Thriller’ Published 4 months ago on April 20, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet American rapper RZA, real name Robert Fitzgerald Diggs, star of Blumhouse-produced Netflix slasher Thriller, recently talked about composing the soundtrack for the flick. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor, executive producer, and soundtrack composer revealed that director and co-writer Dallas Jackson wanted a John Carpenter sound-score for the film. Dallas was like, “I really would love a John Carpenter-sound score for this film and he asked me [to do it].” Dallas, he’s a fan of my Gravediggaz music. He was like, “If you could go back into that mindset, I would love for you to score the film for me.” I also love the Gravediggaz vibe that I had, and so I just went back to that mindset, and, inspired by John Carpenter’s great works over the years in the ’70s and ’80s, I was able to kind of deliver [it]. It maybe reminds me of what they call horror-core. I didn’t call it horror-core. It was coined horror-core by some journalists.” RZA says Jackson’s inspiration came from a select few horror classics. “I think Dallas’ inspiration for this film, he’s a horror fan, so he’s really into it, and he wanted to pay homage to those films that scared him growing up. Halloween. Mike Myers. Friday the 13th. Nightmare on Elm Street. All of these different movies had strong inspirations on us as kids, and now that we are in the film world, the film business, we’re trying to tell stories with that aesthetic.” Netflix’s slasher Thriller is out now in theatres.
