BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents the original soundtrack to KOMODO, featuring music composed by John Debney for the 1999 horror/thriller directed by Michael Lantieri, written by Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell and starring Jill Hennessy (CROSSING JORDAN), Billy Burke (REVOLUTION, TWILIGHT) and Kevin Zegers.


Set on Emerald Island, off the coast of North Carolina, the film begins with the careless discarding of crates of komodo dragon eggs during stormy weather. Over the span of eighteen years, the lizards grow to very large proportions and begin hunting larger prey as their hunger grows and smaller prey becomes scarce. KOMODO tells the story of Patrick Connally, a troubled teenager who witnesses his parents being devoured by komodo dragons in his home on Emerald Island. Rescued and sent to the mainland for treatment of his trauma, he is put in the care of Victoria (Hennessy), a psychiatrist who believes that returning with Patrick to the island to confront and overcome what she assumes is simple post-traumatic stress is the solution. Unknown to them, an oil company has taken over the island and has begun to hunt down the rare komodo dragons, with the intention of covering up their existence and the death toll they have begun to accumulate. Oates (Burke), a biologist for the oil company, is being blackmailed by his boss to eradicate the remaining lizards, along with any problematic witnesses. Patrick returns to his home on the island with his aunt and Victoria and something stirs in the nearby forest, something that has a healthy appetite…


KOMODO was the directorial debut of Oscar-winning special effects man Michael Lantieri, predating the current trend of giant, mega and dino-sized creatures that currently terrorize us on sea, sky and land. Lantieri brought in Phil Tippett, both of whom had won special effects Oscars for JURASSIC PARK, to manage the computer graphics, and the John Cox Creature Workshop, in Australia where the film would be shot, to handle the animatronic lizards. The result is a nearly seamless blend of CGI, puppet heads and tails, and animatronic komodo that enhance the film without calling undue attention to the mix of effects. Filmed in Brisbane on Australia’s Gold Coast, production designer George Liddle built most of the sets on location. It was Lantieri’s film editor, Michael Fallavollita, who suggested his friend, John Debney, for the film’s score. Lantieri had met Debney earlier when he was working on Amblin Studios’ SEAQUEST television series, which Debney had scored. Debney had previously scored 1997’s THE RELIC, a monster film about a primitive reptilian creature roaming the Chicago Natural History Museum, and which serves as a close musical cousin to KOMODO.


John Debney is considered one of the most sought after composers in Hollywood. His unique ability to create memorable work across a variety of genres, as well as his reputation for being remarkably collaborative, have made him the first choice of top level producers and directors. Debney combines his classical training and a strong knowledge of contemporary sounds to easily adapt to any assignment.
In the tradition of classical composers, John Debney enjoys conducting his own work. "A big part of the joy in what I do is that I consider it an honor to stand in front of live musicians and have the opportunity to hear my music played by these talented people." In addition to conducting some of the world's greatest orchestras performing his original works, Debney has also conducted the Royal Scottish National Orchestra on a series of classic film scores for Varese Sarabande Records. He has been celebrated for incorporating a myriad of musical styles and techniques into his work, from contemporary beats to ancient instrumentation.

BuySoundtrax Records presents KOMODO, featuring music composed by John Debney. Long sought after by fans of the composer, KOMODO finally arrives on compact disc.

This is a score I wanted to get out for the last 15 years, it's a really clever and interesting piece of work from Mr. Debney...

Also, it was an excuse to have CD booklets with some very lovely photos of Jill Hennessy, which makes doing even more fun..

First time I remember seeing Jill Hennessy was during an episode of FRIDAY THE 13TH: The Series when it aired (a long time ago)... smile

Thanks for making this available. A cousin to RELIC is always a good thing.

What's the music like? All of those paragraphs of description and no indication as to what the score sounds like? C'mon. "A close musical cousin" to Relic isn't a lot of info.

That's why if you go to the product page we have something called AUDIO CLIPS so you can hear samples of the score so you can judge if it's something that you might like. or not

You've heard of these, right?

You are most welcome.

John Debney has produced a lot of wonderful scores, this is one that has deserved a release for a long time.

Never heard of this film but Debney is always worth checking out and samples do sound great. This will definately be in my next order.

Hopefully La-La Land will be able to bring Lair out this year as well.

How so? Which of his scores make you think he sounds like "an RC clone"?

One score out of the dozens he has scored doesn't really make him an RC clone, now does it?

I said off the top of my head. There's no comparison between Debney of 10-20 years ago and today.

Just received my signed copy yesterday and am loving the music! Already listened to it twice.
I never received a shipping notice, but checked the order page from time to time and noticed that the status was "shipped".
