Music is absolutely impulsive for creating mood in films. In horror movies, music titles give the emotion of hell. Just as important as any horror scene, it is the music makes tension behind it. Let’s check out bloody titles from the horror movies… They are simply coolest horror movie themes ever put to films. This is the personal best horror movie themes list.

My Bloody Valentines…

5. Fred Myrow- Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm (1979)

Don Coscarelli took the title “Phantasm” from the works of Edgar Allan Poe and did an excellent job with the film but what about it’s theme? I think it is the one of the best horror movie themes ever made.

4. John Carpenter- Halloween (1978)

John Carpenter, the master of masters… Remember Carpenter told Phelim O’Neill from The Telegraph, how his ‘Halloween’ – one of the finest, most influential and most lucrative horror films ever made – came into being. So does the Carpenter’s self-composed “Halloween Theme”

3. Fabio Frizzi- Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond

We all Fulci lovers know that according to him, the ending of The Beyond is not a happy ending but at the same time not an unhappy one. If we wanna describe it’s theme, it will be the exact same definition with the ending comment. Na na na nana na na…

2. Bernard Herrmann- Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960)

Psycho’s score is written by the composer Bernard Herrmann, shuffles with Hitchcock’s powerful, complex psychological thriller.

It’s like entering the famous shower scene and throws hot water on us!


1. Goblin- Dario Argento’s Suspiria (1977)


Suspiria is a 1977 Italian giallo horror film directed by Dario Argento. Who forget Goblin’s masterpiece: The theme to the film. An undeniably powerful  and impulsive theme. It makes “charming” sense that Goblin’s theme such a bloody ballerina turning in a music box.

It is an art…


Of course I didn’t forget Tubular Bells… Our nightmare is the opening theme in The Exorcist, a 1973 film directed by William Friedkin.

Also check out these spectacular themes: The Amityville Horror, Zombie 2, Hellraiser, Rosemary’s Baby, Friday the 13th, Saw, Night of the Demons, Nightmare On Elm Street, Jaws, Puppet Master, The Omen, Piranha, Cannibal Holocaust, The Fog, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Pet Sematary, IT, Dead Silence, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, Maniac (2012), The Shining.

Enjoy Suspiria
