Movie review: Music brings the haunt to ‘Side Effects’The music tells us what kind of movie “Side Effects” is going to be. It coils beneath what seems like a realistic plot and whispers that something haunted and possessed is going on. Imagine music for sorcery and then dial it down to ominous forebodings. Without Thomas Newman’s score, this would be a lesser film, even another film.
