Today happens to be another trip around the sun for composer Marco Beltrami’s, so what better way than to celebrate this day during Halloween month than to recognize some of his horror and suspense scores! Featured are Guillermo Del Toro’s Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (2010), James Mangold’s Academy Award®-nominated Logan (2017), Wes Craven’s Scream 4 (2011), and Len Wiseman’s Underworld: Evolution (2006).

On the eve of the Underworld: Blood Wars theatrical and soundtrack premieres, we take you on a film music journey through the Underworld movie franchise, which has spawned some of the most memorable film scores and inspired-by music that has ever graced the Vampire vs. Lycans (aka werwolves) movie genre. From Paul Haslinger to Marco Beltrami to Michael Wandmacher, their individual scores pretty much exhibited what it means to make the world of Underworld sound even more powerful and badass. Pre-game the Underworld premiere by watching our epic playlist below!

Twenty years ago this month, Nine Inch Nails released their ground-breaking Downward Spiral album to much acclaim: making the Billboard 200 at #2 and certified quadruple platinum. This summer, Nine Inch Nails embarks on a North American tour with Soundgarden (also celebrating their own 20th anniversary). In commemoration, we revisit Lakeshore Records‘ catalog of soundtracks composed and produced by past band members of Nine Inch Nails: Charlie Clouser, Danny Lohner and Chris Vrenna.
