Autumn is probably my favorite season.  The cooler weather, the colour of the leaves, Thanksgiving, pumpkin pie, pumpkin beer… but most importantly it’s Halloween season which gives me an excuse to watch scary films every night and indulge in over the top horror film music.  Music written for the horror genre is unapologetic and it’s the kind of music that is encourage to stand out and play an important part in a film’s narrative.  On todays show we are going to celebrate the horror film score for a second year in a row!  Hopefully this becomes an annual tradition here at Cinematic Sound Radio the way it was when I was on terrestrial radio all those years ago at C101.5 FM.

On the program today we are going to be presenting over 2 hours of creepy film music including SNOW WHITE: A TALE OF TERROR (Ottman), THE TALL MAN (Young), PRINCE OF DARKNESS (Carpenter), THE DESCENT (Julyuan), SPECIES II (Shearmur), INSIDIOUS (Bishara), FRIDAY THE 13th (Manfredini), EVENT HORIZON (Kamen/Orbital), SINISTER, (Young), HYDE’S SECRET NIGHTMARE (Sensini) and many more.

And if you are still craving for more Halloween themed music then have a listen to last years Halloween special featuring over 3 hours of classical and film music.
