Scariest Movie Music

Many times we tend to overlook the musical soundtracks that accompany the movies we go to see. When we comment on the movies, we usually mention nothing about the music. But there are some exceptions. For example, who could ever forget John Williams' pounding score for the 1975 box office blockbuster, "Jaws?" Or Bernard Herrmann's screeching all-string soundtrack for Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 shock classic, "Psycho?"

Usually, the music composed for fright films is the most memorable. But what is the scariest movie music ever composed? With Halloween around the corner, now is a perfect time to broach the subject. My choice has to be Jerry Goldsmith's haunting score for the 1976 chiller, "The Omen." This is the type of soundtrack that can give you nightmares.
