Top Ten Movies With the Creepiest Soundtracks


The Top Ten

1 Jaws

This is what makes this movie truly terrifying! People still refuse to go into the water because of this! A landmark soundtrack!

2 There Will Be Blood
3 A Clockwork Orange

Cold, synthesized, droning, and just plain badass. - Phenenas

4 The Dark Knight
5 Psycho

This soundtrack makes my ears bleed with fear (not in a bad way)! I hear it everywhere I go and I get a heart attack from it.

6 The Shining
7 The Exorcist
8 Requiem for a Dream

The theme song (Lux Aeterna), and the song that plays during the electroshock therapy scene. These songs show how devastating drugs can be on people.

Despite the unusual soundtrack, this greatly provides the the intensity of suffering that the characters have from the drugs. Phenomenal movie. - MatrixGuy

9 Naked Lunch
10 Inception

The Contenders

11 Halloween

This soundtrack was very creepy. I don't understand why the hell people don't vote for it. Great horror movie with creepy soundtrack - Magnolia

Yes, the music can get stuck and wrap around your brain and then you become scared to death that he is standing behind me.

12 Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

Google it right now. It is so messed up and horrifying

13 Alien

When I was a kid, I watched this movie and again and again I was looking under the bed, thinking to that one of those aliens might be there... - Ananya

One of the scariest movies ever made. And most of that fear you felt, was achieved thanks to that creepy music and space sounds - Magnolia

14 Signs
15 Saw
16 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

This is for the soundtrack that's played when frodo enters shelob's cave.

17 Insidious
18 The Conjuring
19 The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
20 Friday the 13th
