Netflix's 'In the Tall Grass' Gets an A+ for Sound Design, but It Can't Redeem the Muddled Plot

By

Any horror buff knows that sound is critical when it comes to sending shivers up a moviegoer’s spine (think Jaws or even A Quiet Place, where the lack of noise is just as effective as a few sinister notes). 

Music certainly helps elevate Netflix’s new psychological thriller, In the Tall Grass, which it desperately needs to balance out the convoluted plot. Here are a few behind-the-scenes facts about the making of this supernatural drama, which is based on Stephen King and Joe Hill’s 2012 novella of the same name.

The chanting on In the Tall Grass' soundtrack ties in closely to the film’s narrative.

Yes, the storyline is bonkers — making grass one of your main villains is a bold move — but as one reddit reviewer pointed out, the setting presents the perfect playground for sound design.
