Widget Post (Culver City, Calif.) recently finished up a comprehensive sound package for Rob Zombie's gothic horror film, House of 1000 Corpses, in its new 10,000-square-foot audio post-production studio. Widget's audio team completed ADR/Foley, sound effects, backgrounds, dialog editing and the final mix for Zombie's directorial debut. Zombie also wrote the script and composed all of the film's music.

“This was a unique project in that, as a musician, Rob Zombie had a unique perspective on what things should sound like,” commented Fred Howard, sound supervisor at Widget Post. “He wanted to push the limits in the audio landscape to maintain a consistent level of chaos and angst for the viewer. So in that sense, one of the biggest challenges was just keeping up with Rob's imagination.”
