Scary Sounds: Halloween & Horror Music Part 2

Part 2: Horror Soundtracks 1

Ever since I was a child, it was always the sounds in horror that really set the eerie scene and sent chills down my spine. What is heard but not seen is always far more frightening, as it lets your imagination conjure up your worst nightmares long before you ever see them on the screen. So therefore, this entry is dedicated to the first 6 in the series of entries about excellent soundtracks!

In no particular order:
  • The Omen - Ave Satani (Jerry Goldsmith)
  • The Exorcist - Tubular Bells / Fantasia for Strings (Mike Oldfield / Hans Werner Henze)
  • Halloween (John Carpenter)
  • Suspiria Theme (Goblin)
  • Candyman Theme (Phillip Glass)
  • The House on Haunted Hill (1999 version) (Don Davis)
