Some of the best film scores ever have been made for the horror genre. A great horror film score can foreshadow an ominous happening, misdirect the viewer with red herring themes or heighten the terror. Music is necessary to establish the connection the viewer feels to the protagonists, so much so that the pulse races when a familiar score cue starts playing, prompting us to yell at the screen, “Don’t go in there, stupid!” 

Lots of fun and spooky Halloween items coming.
