Re: Best songs in a horror movie?

Dawn of the Dead '04 had a GREAT songtrack, including the Cash tune listed above,  Richard Cheese's cover of "Down with the Sickness" and "People who Died" by the Jim Carroll Band.

I'm also fond of George Thorogood's "Bad to the Bone" (though overused since) and "Harlem Nocturne" by the Viscounts in CHRISTINE...

But my choice is the song that made me a Van Morrison fan... "Moondance" from AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON.

"What a marvelous night for a moon dance....." la lalalal alla

The Killing Moon by Echo and The Bunnymen in Donnie Darko was cool as well.

Re: Best songs in a horror movie?

I just had a chance to watch the original Wicker Man yesterday.  The music here is great in showing how we traditionalize our actions through song.

Very creepy.

Like many have already mentioned, "Freebird" at the end of "The Devil's Reject's" is an awesome touch.
