Psycho IV: The Beginning


Bobbi Evors is strangled twice, put into the trunk of a car, regains consciousness again while it sinks into a pond, and drowns.

Blade Runner 2049


Sylvia Hoeks is drowned by Ryon Gosling after a lengthy fight with him.


I remember seeing the original Blade Runner and how captivated I was with the film score. As a fan of down-tempo electronic music, the movie’s score is one of my favorite things about it. As an architectural buff with a particular fondness for contemporary design, the set pieces are another. 2049 promised more of the same, and its 21st-century visual effects did not disappoint.

There were a couple points in the scene that I considered removing so we get to the moment K starts choking Sylvia sooner, but both options left out too much context to explain their encounter, so I decided to include the entire scene and end the clip on Sylvia’s death stare. The score also just sounds so damn cool.
