9 of the Creepiest Horror Film Scores!

Music is one of the most frightening aspects that horror films have. Without their terrifying scores, these films wouldn’t have the same effect on audiences. Today, in honor of SCORE: A Film Music Documentary, which will be in theaters on June 16th, PopHorror looks back on some of the most spine-chilling horror film scores that were both haunting and beautiful. 

Jaws (1975)

Music Composed by: John Williams

John Williams has created some of the most beautiful film scores like Jurassic Park, E.T., and Star Wars. But the Jaws‘ main theme is undoubtedly his most well-known score. Instead of showing the main antagonist throughout the film, its presence was introduced with a quiet, troubling beat. Even if you have never seen Jaws, chances are you still know that the film’s main theme will always signify trouble is approaching. That’s how influential John Williams’ score is!
