Along with all the other Super 8 Shorts, Within The Woods was scored with music taken from other motion pictures around at the time, although it isn't general knowledge which ones. It's Murder for example, draws heavily on music from a couple of Hitchcock films, and Clockwork uses Michel Polnareff's Lipstick score. You can listen to the soundtrack below, and see more details on the tracks used further down.



Within The Woods Complete Fanmade Score

This was a personal project, and is currently the only way fans can hear the complete score. It was edited from a combination of sources including retail CDs, Records, and MP3s. Putting the soundtrack up for download would raise copyright issues, but you can listen to a stream-only version through the media player below.

Please note; We don't wish to tread on anyone's toes, simply to allow fans to listen to material they can't officially buy. If there are still any copyright holders out there would rather their audio was not included here, please send over an email, and it'll be immediately removed.

Soundtrack Identity Project

This project has been running project for quite some time, to try to identify all the tracks used. It began in 2002, but it was never a project that lent itself to active completion, mearly passively waiting until new tracks were recognized. The project was finally completed in August 2011, when the final two tracks were identified.

The film borrows heavily from two scores; Michael Winner's 1974 film Death Wish (composed by Herbie Hancock), and Philip Kaufman's 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (composed by Denny Zeitlin), but also draws from a number of other diverse films such as On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The Deadly Mantis, Jaws, Sorcerer, and The Eyes Of Laura Mars, as well as a couple of disco songs by artists Rickie Lee Jones, and Sister Sledge, and even a track from Prog rock group Jade Warrior. You can see the complete list of the tracks below. The version of Within The Woods which the tracks have been synced up to is taken from the generally available 'Sam Raimi Short Films' bootleg DVD, which is NTSC at 29.97fps with a total running time of 30mins 41secs.
