Top 10 Movies With Creepy and Scary Theme Songs


The Top TenXW

1The Exorcist

Just hearing the words "Tubular Bells" should make the hairs on your body rise. The Exorcist was creepy and the soundtrack is equally as eerie. Go ahead, stare at little Regan's eyes while listening to the song, we dare you. - YanRocky


Michael Myers (no, not the comedian) scared us when we were kids and the soundtrack to Halloween still sends shivers down our spines. - YanRocky


The screeching violin sound from Psycho is a classic. For a real fright, let the violin part play on repeat until you can't take it anymore. - YanRocky


Jaws may have been more of a thriller than a horror movie, but its main theme will make you look over your shoulder. - YanRocky

5Rosemary's Baby

Make it stop! Make it stop! La-la-la-la-la... - YanRocky

6Children of the Corn

There's something utterly spooky about kids singing the same simple syllables over and over. "Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah Ah-Ah". - YanRocky

7Nightmare On Elm Street

If the world can use more of one thing, it's serial killers with a sense of humor--okay, maybe not. Still, Freddy, this one goes out to you. - YanRocky

8The X-Files

While every other entry here is either from a horror movie or relates to the death in some way, The X-Files was all about the paranormal. We've gotten over the fact that Fox Mulder is now a middle-aged sex addict on Californication, but the theme of The X-Files is still keeping us on our toes. - YanRocky

9Unsolved Mysteries

Much of the success of Unsolved Mysteries stems from the fact that most people would believe anything that came out of the late Robert Stack's mouth. You can almost sense ghosts surrounding you when this song plays. - YanRocky


The piano score of Candyman is so innocent yet totally creepy at the same time. There's something very clown-like with the score that makes us uneasy. - YanRocky
