Stephen King's ‘1922’ adaptation for Netflix scored by former Eurekan

“IT” may be the “it thing” when talking about Stephen King right now, but that could all change next month with the help of a Eureka-raised musician. Mike Patton has scored the forthcoming adaptation of “1922” which will be released via Netflix.

“The musician is a true original and any fans of his work will be able to recognize his style almost instantly, which is no small feat considering that Patton has recorded and produced just about every genre of music that there is,” Movie Web wrote of the score created by the frontman of Mr. Bungle and Faith No More.

The Eureka High grad and former HSU student apparently used the words “haunting and Hitchcock-y” when describing the score.

In the embedded video an example Patton’s original music can be heard at 1:30.

“1922” will be released October 20.
