John Murphy, the 43 year old British film composer, bears a cult status in the film music area. A Self-taught multi-instrumental musician, he began his career in the 1980s working notably with The Lotus Eaters, Thomas Lang and Claudia Brücken before moving into the film music genre in the early 1990s and scored his first hit with Leon the Pig Farmer, later moving onto such scores as Danny Boyle's box-office success 28 Days Later and its sequel 28 Weeks Later and generally working closely with the said director throughout the years.
His latest project is The last house on the left a 2009 American horror film directed by Dennis Iliadis and written by Carl Ellsworth and Adam Alleca. It is a remake of the 1972 film of the same name, and stars Tony Goldwyn, Monica Potter, Garret Dillahunt, and Sara Paxton.

This film was released on March 13, 2009.

Here's the quote from the above link, on the score's description:
The original motion picture score to the Rogue Pictures big screen thriller The Last House On The Left, starring Sara Paxton, Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter, produced by Wes Craven (Scream, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Red Eye). Acclaimed composer John Murphy (28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, Sunshine) finds the perfect pitch of suspense with a mesmerizing, orchestral music score that takes this powerful new remake of the legendary Wes Craven original Last House film to new heights of absolute terror.
