With Halloween just around the corner, I find myself thinking of my favourite horror movies. The movies that are genuinely scary—even after the movie has finished.

A lot of that tension and atmosphere comes from the soundtrack, and here are some of my favourites:

- The Exorcist (soundtrack by Mike Oldfield) - Halloween (soundtrack by John Carpenter) - The Shining (Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta by Béla Bartók) - The Twilight Zone (theme by Marius Constant) - The Walking Dead (theme by Bear McCreary)

What’s yours? Add a YouTube link if possible.

How do good horror movies affect you? The hair on the back of your neck? Scared to walk down the hallway? Hiding under the blankets? Nightmares? I have to admit to all of them, though mainly when I was younger. These days I mainly just jump. Goodness, we’re big kids!

This classic ‘Knife’ scene from Psycho always gets on my nerves.

Movie: Deep Red, soundtracks: Deep Red + Death Dies + School At Night (+ more)

Movie: Phenomena, soundtrack: Phenomena

I don’t even know if these movies are known abroad, but when they first came out, many years ago, they were very scary… anyway, movie director: Dario Argento, band: Goblin :)

Same for me Adrian, when I was younger I was hiding under my blanket, and I was really scared of dark places… I felt like someone was following me… running very fast to turn the lights on :D

Wow abstract-labs, I got tricked when you mentioned Phenomena. I was thinking of Phenomenon with John Travolta. I haven’t seen Phenomena, but enjoyed that track. The movie sounds a bit corny – a girl with a telepathic link to insects that help her solve crimes. But it might be worth watching to see if Jennifer Connelly could act when she was 14.

Motionvids, I love that Psycho track too – it reminds me of intense screaming. I had it on my original list, but cut it down to just five tracks.

Hey Adrian here is the full movie (Phenomena) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAVoooUXU_E

I know it may look a bit corny now, but it’s a 1985 movie, 28 years ago!!! Also I forgot, some soundtracks by Iron Maiden and Motorhead, you should be “expert” enough to remember these ones ;)

Awesome. I added it to my “Watch Later” list, and I’ll check it out on my Apple TV on the weekend.

I’m definitely “expert” enough to remember the tracks. I got married in 1985!

I would have to say

• Eyes Wide Shut:

The ultra-simplistic piano theme is one of the most haunting I have ever heard.

• The Terminator:

Brad Fiedel´s amazing tech-noir soundtrack is one of the stars of that movie. The tunnel chase and parking scenes still give me chills.

• Alien:

Just watch the opening and listen to that eerie, howling space-wind. I know it´s not music – but the radar tracker sound that tells us that something is moving closer to the main characters..and fast! is still one of the scariest sounds ever.
