The best songs from horror movies not only make a scene memorable, but they can also conjure up all the creepy feels and spine-tingling fears through pure association. Great horror movies have it all - from the cast to the effects to themes that haunt your dreams for long after the credits have rolled. But when they are matched with great songs, scary movies, horror films, and all those flicks with that good Halloween-y vibe reach an acme of perfection.
Some of the best horror movie music (and a popular horror movie trope) is an innocent song ironically paired with intense scenes, like John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High" in Final Destination or the titular song of Jeepers Creepers. Other cheerful songs may be associated with less nightmarish moments, such as "Banana Boat" in Beetlejuice, but they fit the mood of a super song in a spooky movie. Other songs are covers transformed to fit a film, such as Type O Negative's "Summer Breeze" in I Know What You Did Last Summer. Some movies, like The Crow and The Lost Boys, or even the divisive Queen Of The Damned, are inextricably linked with the music in them.
The best horror movie songs transcend the score to practically sum up the thesis of a film. Vote up the best songs from horror movies that are not only great on their own but help make the movie great as well.
