Songs that Creep you Out

Post by Adam106 » Thu Nov 06, 2008 7:58 pm

For me, it has to be the X-Files theme tune. It gives me the shivers so badly.

In the second Nancy Drew game, Stay Tuned For Danger, the danger music really freaks me out. It makes my heart pound wildly, as danger music should. The only danger music that even comes close to surpassing it is Final Scene.

Wait, I forgot to mention another one...the Desyat Negrityat score. It's the kind of score that stays with you for weeks ...

Yeah, the mere simplicity of it (at times) lends to the creepiness.

Here are some of the creepiest moments of the DN score (may contain spoilers):

-The music when Vera's getting adjusted to everything in her bedroom. It sounds so calm and peaceful, you get the feeling that it isn't supposed to be peaceful...eerie.
-The music that slowly builds up to something awful when Marston takes that fatal drink...
-The music during Vera's first flashbacks; first, to when she and Hugo are together (nice, peaceful violin music), and second, when she is allowing Cyril to die (creepy, dramatic music)
-The music playing when Miss Brent has her hallucination which then ends after she chucks a Bible out the window
-The music building up when the murderer takes out the needle and heads towards Miss Brent that then gets cut off when she screams
-The fact that there is no music during the infamous bedroom scene; if the assumption that the music represents the guests' minds is correct (and it most likely IS), then if there's no music during that moment... :shock:
-The music playing when Blore gets conked over the head with the bear clock; it makes you want to shout "LOOK OUT!"
-The sound of waves in the background when Lombard and Vera discover Armstrong's body that is then replaced by thematic music when Lombard sees Vera pointing the revolver at him
-When Vera's hanging herself at the end, the music that plays sounds like the music in her mind to represent that her mind is unravelling and unstable and when she has her last flashback right before kicking away the chair, the music seems perfectly stable--WHAM! She kicks away the chair and the music seems to be letting out one final dying note that slowly...fades...away...
-And then of course, there is the final thematic music that goes out with a BANG!

Weird note: Some of the creepiest moments with the score involve Vera. Wonder if there's a connection...

Can't say I ever found the music of the Russian version particularly creepy. Probably loud at times, but never did I feel creeped out by it.

Ugh. I can't stand that song AT ALL! Somebody would always whistle that theme when they walked past thinking they were all that...

Although they are great, great themes I don't find any of them to be particularly creepy. You missed The Exorcist theme, though. Now that song is quite eerie.

Though not very scary on it's own, it is so freakin' creepy when played in the movie.

I don't think any song is completely creepy without the movie aspect. The two complement each other. There are exceptions, like the posted bits from Jaws and Psycho, but they are creepier in the films they're in. By themselves, it's as if something's missing, just as if you see a scene without its music, you might get that odd feeling that something's not quite right. (Still great to listen to, though.)

That being said, the menacing drum that keeps beating on and on and on in Munich always creeps me out...

For some reason I always think of a typewriter in the background of the Halloween theme

For a wrestling theme, it is kind of creepy.

Really? I challenge anyone to take a shower with the Psycho theme playing the background.

The Jaws song has also sent shivers down my spine. After riding the ride at Universal, I became terrified of that song. Refused to watch the movie for years. The movie itself is considerably less scary as a teenager/adult, but still, I don't think I would like to be at the beach and hear that song going.

The Halloween theme does creep me out. I guess I assumed it would creep others out as well.
