Vampires and werewolves are de rigeur when it comes to Halloween movie nights, which is why we’re thrilled to pair up Jakob’s Wife (starring genre legend Barbara Crampton) and The Wolf of Snow Hollow (starring Jim Cummings and the late Robert Forster)! The scores by Tara Busch and Ben Lovett, respectively, are wicked and suspenseful. Check out our playlist below and get a taste of their sweet and rich sounds.
Right from the opening cue of “Amelia’s Walk,” Busch quickly transports listeners and audience members into a solemnly eerie yet gorgeous world of ethereal mood, with haunting piano and Busch’s ghostly vocals providing a skeleton of what’s to come. – The Film Scorer
Lovett looked to Herrmann for inspiration to complement the film that centers on a case of dead bodies popping up mysteriously. – Vehlinggo
