Get these motherfucking emo bands off this motherfucking album. No, really get these motherfucking emo bands off this motherfucking album. The soundtrack accompanying arguably the year's most anticipated cheese-horror flick is a giant mess namely because it's full of pounding, stuttering dance remixes of songs by new-punk kingpins such as Panic! at the Disco, The Academy Is, and Fall Out Boy. But these alternate versions don't improve on the originals nor are they interesting on their own merits. Only Cee-Lo Green's catchy (and very Gnarls Barkley-esque) "Ophidiophobia" and a surprisingly delicate acoustic version of Coheed and Cambria's "Wake Up" feel at all fresh. Otherwise save your pennies for the booze you know you're going to sneak into a midnight showing of the film.
