Best Horror Movies Themes


The Top TenXW


Well, I was looking for horror theme songs, but this is okay. I like this as my number 2, and since NOES wasn't on this, I couldn't vote for that. So, yeah. You happy, Mikey? Maybe Freddy will get you in YOUR dreams.

If you don't like Halloween, you don't like movies! Unpredictable, which is always a good thing, and this one movie you can never fall asleep after. Michael Myers will find you when you don't vote for him.
And trust me,... It won't be pretty.

I know some people may not have seen Jaws. But when you do, you will instantly recognise the theme song. As it has been used in many films, and T.V. shows. Although this was the first thing it was in. - IronSabbathPriest

Seriosly, ghostbusters? Scream? Saw? Jaws has THE greatest horror movie theme ever.


Probably the creepiest theme I've heard. And that's why I love it

YES YES YES! Finally someone who knows theme music.

underrated horror movie from the early 70's - Alexandr

Great, interesting, funny and very innovative for that time theme. Great movie with awesome acting, effects and theme - Magnolia
