“If I could work with "D" on every film I ever made, I’d do it. I have never worked with a person in the filmmaking process like him...He works with you to completely realize the film for what it’s meant to be. He’s the purest guy I’ve ever worked with." George A. Romero, Director 2007

“George Romero’s deeply disturbing portrait of a modern day ‘vampire’ comes with an equally chilling score – haunting, minimalist jazz penned and performed by pianist-poet Donald Rubinstein…High art. One of the top 100 coolest film scores of all time.” Mojo Magazine 2002

“This is the soundtrack to every solitary late-night drive you’ve ever taken. Rubinstein’s rather like a less talkative Leonard Cohen, or maybe a less-animated Warren Zevon, with moments of John Hiatt and David Gray thrown in. A veteran of movie soundtracks, Rubinstein is accustomed to creating evocative works; when he’s set free to score the movies in his mind, the results are often picture perfect.” Splendidezine
