Outside a haunting, gentle main theme, the music for “The Death Squad” tends to be more play-ins and play-outs for various sequences in the film, as opposed to a thematically based score. These are all interesting and effective, and additionally there are a number of very pleasing jazz cues which add considerable texture to this TV movie.
