There is one genre and one band I know of who make music inspired by a style of soundtracks. The former is the synthwave genre, which is more or less based on old-school sci-fi and thriller scores. The latter is the band Calibro 35, who base their music on 70s Italian crime films.

Synthwave seems to be pretty well known in the metal community, so I won't bother with examples. In terms of Calibro 35, my favorite song is Eurocrime.

And since this is Recommendation Central, I'll add one more:

But I'm mostly interested in bands or genres that not only take influence from film scores, but try to replicate them. Does this exist outside the genres I mentioned?

There's "The Director's Cut" by one of Mike Patton's many bands, Fantômas. It's metal and avant-garde covers of various well-known movie-soundtrack themes.

Sorry for the late response, but I appreciate the recommendation. I've been meaning to check out Fantômas for a while now.

Emptiness - Not For Music (2016)
Discovered them yesterday via a thread here, worth a shot I reckon.
