Shackled is an atmospheric psychological thriller set in a 1950s circus in Louisiana, starring Emilia Clarke & Hadley Fraser.

Held captive by a circus, Malu (Emilia Clarke) is frantically rescued from her shackles by her husband. As she waits anxiously in the darkness for her chance to escape, a disturbing truth she’s hidden away seeps back in.

We worked with director Nour Wazzi (Habibti) to develop a score that reflected and deepened the world of her psychological thriller.   Co-writing with A.K. Benedict (The Beauty of Murder), we used calliope, gypsy violin and circus percussion to reflect its setting, and accordion, music box and soprano voice to bring out the atmosphere and speak Malu’s feelings in a script that has very little dialogue.

The soundtrack is now available through PLM Soundtracks.
