The Bride of Frankenstein The Bride of Frankenstein (Universal, 1935)

Eerie special effects, monstrous makeup, and shock editing all contribute to the thrills of a spooky movie. But it may be the film's music that has the greatest influence on the atmosphere and mood, and makes the most powerful impact on the audience.

David Garland presents some classic film scores to put you in the mood for Halloween, including music from "Frankenstein," "The Bride of Frankenstein," "Psycho," "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," and more.

"Psycho" is a scary score, no doubt about it. But I think Herrmann's "Sisters" is even scarier.
Will we ever see a soundtrack release for Les Baxter's "The Pit and the Pendulum". I hope so.
Good show, David.
