Happy Halloween and welcome to the next new episode of the podcast! Getting into the spirit of the season, I felt compelled to join the fun and craft a list of my Top 10 favorite horror movie scores. Admittedly, I'm not much of a horror movie fan, however if a favorite composer provided the music (such as Jerry Goldsmith) or the story seemed especially intriguing (such as Clive Barker's NIGHTBREED), then I found myself motivated to take a look and a listen. This list is of course my own personal favorites and not centered around "most popular" or "most successful" titles, so the "slasher" and "torture" sub-categories aren't represented, with no offense to respective fans of those movies. Instead, you will hear music from horror movies about mad scientists, those set in space, on the open sea and even one example that journeys into Hell. I also share some of my own memories of discovering the films and their scores featured on this Top 10 list.
