Spooky halloween tunes!


How about a thread of spooky music for Halloween!

Shriekback - Nemesis:

Anyone else?

Coil's Hellraiser Theme



How about Goblin?


Nine Inch Nails’ original score to Quake.

In the fall of 1998, my church (I was no longer Christian by this point but I kept going to maintain peace with my parents) allowed our youth group to create a mini haunted house in the education building for Halloween. My assigned area was the basement hallway, pitch black with dim light at the end. My costume was a black burlap robe, a ghoulish, demonic hooded mask, and short-handle scythe.

And playing, on repeat, was the Quake score.

Visitors entered into pitch black hearing only this and their own heavy breathing. And once they reached the halfway point, they heard one more thing: the scrape of a scythe against the cold cinder block walls. Screams filled the hallway after that. It was a damn good Halloween that year.


When I ran a horror event a few years back and needed a creepy ambient soundtrack for an escape room, the soundtrack to Eraserhead ended up being perfect.



Cradle of Filth?



It’s horrible, but also quite beautiful.

Points for Shriekback, BTW.


Oh sure take Shriekback for the first one…

Anyway nobody got Screamin’ Jay Hawkins yet.


Okay, not that spooky, but my favorite Halloween number for the past couple years:

And this one, I’ve been playing in the house for Trick or Treat night for a couple decades-


Bobby “Boris” Pickett?


it’s even the name of the song



One more, and the lyrics to this one are truly beyond the pale.

Two roosters I slew
And with all of my might
I prayed, hard, for you
In Haiti at night

Your skin has turned blue
And your hair has turned white
Must be the voodoo
Of this Haitian moonlight

We can’t take day trips
But Oh! those moonlight strolls
Dressed up in silk slips
High heels and mink stoles

You swivel your hips
As I work the controls
No blood ever drips
When I widen your holes

Zombie boy, zombie boy
Zombie boy, zombie boy

You seem to have died
Of some form of the pox
They left you inside
Your tiny black box

I heard when you cried
And I answered your knocks
Let’s make you a bride
With another two cocks

You look pretty pure
For so long in the ground
You smell like a sewer
But you don’t make a sound

I feed you ordure
To keep Poopsie spellbound
I like to be sure
You’ll be sticking around

Zombie boy, zombie boy
Zombie boy, zombie boy
Zombie boy, zombie boy
Zombie boy, zombie boy





Also the goofiest song about vampires ever. “He wants BLOOOWWW!”
