Overlooked Halloween Scores Artwork for our Film Soundtrack Podcast

Episode 9 – Overlooked Halloween Scores

Will and Wend kick off the Halloween season by discussing three Halloween scores that are often overlooked. We begin with a modern anthology horror featuring a spooktacular score by Douglas Pipes. Trick ‘r Treat is melodically easy to follow and perfectly captures the spirit of Halloween. The second film score we look at is The Orphanage by Fernando Velázquez, a film composer that shows us you don’t always have to be over-the-top when writing for the horror genre, you can still write beautiful music. The El Orfanato score speaks more to the sadness of the children in-film than the horrors that lie in wait for them. Finally, we discuss Danny Elfman’s Sleepy Hollow score. No stranger to Halloween music, this dark realm of Tim Burton’s shows the composer’s clearly adept at scoring horror movies. We strongly encourage you to revisit all three of these underrated Halloween soundtracks and experience the thrills, chills and kills all over again!
