Misha Mansoor recently wrote an entirely original score for a short horror film entitled Polaroid, a collaboration with his Periphery bandmate Matt Halpern and videographer Alex Wohleber.
The story is about a man who is awoken by some mysterious bumps in the night and realizes that he and his girlfriend might not be alone at home.
“I have always been a fan of the horror genre and have had so many ideas over the years. It has always been a goal of mine to bring my horror ideas to life,” Wohleber wrote on YouTube. “Well, after all this time, I finally teamed up with my friends Matt Halpern, Misha Mansoor, and [sound editor] Sam Nuttle to create this first short story! To us, this is just a warm up, something we filmed in just a few hours to see if we could pull it off. We ended up having a great time, and we’re already working on the next one!”
In the video’s description, it is suggested that the viewer wears headphones or uses studio speakers to fully experience Mansoor’s haunting score, which is solid advice to follow. The bumps and squeaks that wake the protagonist can definitely send chills down the spine.
