Best Horror Movies Themes


The Top Ten

1 Halloween

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.

Unique theme from classic horror movie - Alexandr

2 The House by the Cemetery
3 Jaws

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.

4 The Fog

John Carpenter's The Fog was great horror movie with great theme - Alexandr

5 Saw

Saw is far the best horror movie theme - DENISAE

7 A Nightmare On Elm Street

Now tell me a pedophile psycho-path coming into your dreams meaning to kill you both in your dream and in real life wouldn't creep you out. Because I had a dream... And, well... I'd rather not say the rest...

8 Scream

so awesome, what teenager wouldn't want a serial killer after them once theyve seen this movie.
