Come get a taste of the old south and let the old south get a taste of you!! When this year's round of unsuspecting Northerners fail to show up for their annual Guts N' Glory Jamboree, the residents of Pleasant Valley take their cannibalistic carnival on the road and head to Iowa where they encounter spoiled heiresses Rome and Tina Sheraton and the cast and crew from their Road Rascals reality show. Performing The Bloodiest Show on Earth, our Southern maniacs prove to be more than ratings killers in what John Landis has called one of the rare sequels that surpasses the original.
To put together the sonic backdrop, Sullivan turned to the fans, Horror movies are to film what punk rock is to music, said Sullivan, the rebellious, bastard stepchild of a medium. Without a big music budget, Sullivan made the populist appeal -- he put out the word through various social networking sites looking for music.
The result is a soundtrack as maniacal as the film. Highlights include Psycho Charger's newly recorded The South Will Rise (Field of Screams), twangy-country tracks from the film's stars Ahmed Best & Clifford Allen Wagner (who also provides the rocking title track Killers on the Highway), coupled with rock, indie rock and dance cuts from United Snakes, Me & My Friends, Sean Avolio, Sweet Cyanide, Kyle Justin, Shawn Mars and Zombie Girl. Rounding out the soundtrack is the original score by Patrick Copeland. Describes Sullivan, Like the film itself, Patrick's music is a little bit of everything, a mixed bag of lunacy and mayhem that perfectly captures the 'Splatstick' variety show that is Field of Screams.
