Directed by Philip Barantini
Music by Aaron May & David Ridley

We composed the score for this feature debut by Philip Barantini. It's a brooding and gritty indie crime drama that tells the story of the release of Eddie Franks (Craig Fairbrass), a former criminal, after 10 years in prison.

'[Villain] has refined touches throughout, starting with the slightly distorted sound design and brooding,

unsettling score by Aaron May and David Ridley.'

Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

'Exceedingly well-made... A mood that falls somewhere between resignation and guttering hope.' 

Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times - Critic's Pick 

'Aaron May and David Ridley's haunting score is perhaps the strongest element'

Kyle Jonathan, The Movie Sleuth

'[An] ethereal, atmospheric score from debutant composers Aaron May and David Ridley'

Richard Phippen, HeyUGuys

'A new soundscape'

Andrew Murray, The Upcoming
