Scary Instrumental Music and Soundtracks

Scary Movie and TV Themes/Songs

Scary Music From Soundtracks Movies, Classical & Television can evoke their own terrors, but your memories from the big (or small) screen are what make shivers run down your spine. Extended cuts and edits can add an even creepier vibe. What is ‘scary music’ anyway? Midnight, the Stars and You by Al Bowly with Ray Noble and His Orchestra is a lovely 1934 tune unless you’ve seen The Shining.
