The latest episode of Rick and Morty marked the show’s first foray into the Horror genre, and the episode’s amazing main theme tune has since been made available to viewers online. So far, Season 6 has been an experimental one for the show, since Rick is being confined to a single realm without the use of his portal pistol.
Each episode has been really distinct from the others, and we’ve acquired fresh perspectives on each family member. We finally got to see an episode that was unlike anything else in the series.
The sixth season of Rick and Morty featured the episode “Night Family,” which was a horror movie parody of the show’s typical fare. Not only did the “Night” versions of the family wander around like zombies while they slept, but the presentation as a whole was considerably more ominous and gloomy.
This came about as a result of the visual elements such as lighting and composition and, most significantly, the auditory ones.
The smooth “Night Family” score, composed by Ryan Elder, features elements of Horror, and it has been uploaded on YouTube by Rick and Morty. See for yourself down below:
In the episode “Night Family,” Rick uses a Somnambulator to make his body exercise while he sleeps. He made his sleepwalking self do chores he detested, and his family joined in on the joke. While they performed it willingly at first, as their Night selves, they eventually grew tired of the effort and wished they could switch to daytime.
The simulated thriller atmospheres provided by the soundtrack set the tone for the entire film.
Still, there were plenty of laughs to be had; this is Rick and Morty, after all. It was another eye-opening character encounter since it revealed Summer’s inner thoughts and her complex relationship with Rick and her family.
These elements may be laying the groundwork for the next main antagonists to appear in a future episode or even in a subsequent season. One day, perhaps, Horror will return in even greater numbers.
