Video: Top Horror Movie Music To Soundtrack Your Halloween

By Lisa White in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 31, 2014 4:30PM

For many, Halloween isn't just about dressing up or enjoying and discarding your favorite and least favorite candies of the night. It's about the things that go bump in the night, the creepy feeling you get when you are alone in the dark. Scary movies are a Halloween tradition, but what really makes a horror movie come alive is a truly terrifying earworm of a soundtrack.

Our friends over at Consequence of Sound share their top five picks for the best horror movie soundtracks. Host Leah Pickett gives a rundown of why these favorites truly get under your skin and weave into your mind to help bolster fine horror cinema. We agree with her number one pick, since that particular theme gave us goosebumps when someone drove past our office blasting it earlier this week. Truly spooky.

Throw these tunes on your playlist if you are hosting a party this weekend to give your guests a true fright!
