Music by Mark Snow
One of the problems modern movie-makers have in remaking the great paranoia thrillers of the '70s is that modern audiences not only know all the plot twists ahead of time, but they no longer have any patience for the methodical establishment of mood and character that is essential for such an exercise to be effective.
THE STEPFORD WIVES, which is DISTURBING BEHAVIOR's cinematic antecedant, spent almost half its lengthy running time establishing its characters and the oddly off-center normalcy of the Stepford community before anything truly outlandish occurs. DISTURBING BEHAVIOR hasn't any time for such niceties, and former X-FILES series director David Nutter drenches the screen in such a riot of day-glo MTV colors that there's little if any "normalcy" to be disrupted. The result is sort of a bizarre cross between THE X-FILES and THE REAL WORLD.
One of the few elements of the movie to come off successfully is Mark
Snow's score, which comes off as a better X-FILES score than the one
he wrote for the X-FILES movie.
