"In the House - In a Heartbeat" is an instrumental track by John Murphy. The song is often mistakenly referred to as one of the other songs on the film's soundtrack, "East Hastings" by Canadian band Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The track was featured over the climactic confrontation towards the end of the film. The name of the track seems to stem from this scene, set in a country house, in which the character Selena is tested to make good on her promise to kill Jim "in a heartbeat" if he ever became infected, as she had earlier promised she would.
