The Sound of Horror
What makes a horror movie good? You could say a lot of it has to do with plot, cinematography and direction. However, many of the iconic moments in classic horror movies are related to the music. At the heart of it, music is effective at evoking moods, and the mood of horror classics like The Exorcist, Halloween, or even Jaws would’ve been completely different were it not for Mike Oldfield, John Carpenter and John Williams.
