Bloody Disgusting shared a quote from Alexander Taylor who is set to be taking on the score in the Mutilator sequel.

“I’m so honored and excited to be a part of The Mutilator franchise. One of the best parts of this is the fact that Buddy Cooper is back! It’s rare for a legacy film to have the original writer and director come back, so you know this is going to be special. Buddy and I already have some cool themes and wild ideas for the score.”
