Just ZombieCasualConversations: October ๐ŸŽƒ

A bit late to this but here we go! It's halloween ya'll here's some halloween stuff (descriptions to come).
1Danny Elfman
The Nightmare Before Christmas

My essential halloween (also christmas) favorite movie!
2Howard Shore
The Silence of the Lambs

The scene in the dark will always be one of the most teeth-grinding experiences ever. Howard Shore's musical buildup was definitely one of the attributing factors which brought this scene much of it's punch.
3John Williams

Contrary to most, the scene in the bowel of the boat where Quint retells the chilling fate of the U.S.S. Indianapolis was always what got to me most. The entrancingly subtle score for this scene brought about an added tension to the already gripping story.
4Steve Jablonsky
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

The dinner scene here was the underrated chilling scene that always got to me. There's just something so discomforting about it that always stayed in memory.
5David Julyan
The Cabin In the Woods

Who knew Joss Whedon, one of the primary writers from Toy Story could write such an intriguing entry into the horror world? What appears on it's outside to be a typical cliched horror flick, would remarkably surprise those who give this a proper chance.
6Joseph Bishara
The Conjuring

A revival of what I truly believe to be the best brand of horror. One relying not on its pop outs, but it's sadistic ability to "conjur" fear with it's foreboding tone and great acting. Let your imagination create the fear that resides in this movie's construct.
7John Murphy
28 Days Later Soundtrack

HEY! A zombie flick! Also one of my favorites. The simplistic yet memorable score manifests a musical representation of the utter dystopia of this zombie apocalypse universe. One that actually made me fear what would happen if there were ever such an outbreak.
8Trevor Jones

I don't typically find myself terrified by arachnids but this film does well to create a fear that bites down with great buildups for scares and a great deal of charm.
9John Debney
Hocus Pocus

A Disney channel classic if there ever was one. This movie defined just how masterful Disney could be at creating a highly entertaining halloween movie. A family film that doesn't reach cheesy levels of acting and maintains it's hilarity and fun for the entire sequence.
10Jon Brion

Who knew Jon Brion would take up writing a soundtrack for an animated film? This was an honest surprise and a delightful one. The story and animation here were definitely top notch and you get your family humor with just enough adult edge to it for anyone to enjoy.
11David Sardy

From the awkward yet endearing narration of Jesse Eisenberg to the Twinkie tracking of Woody Harrelson. Zombieland revitalized dark humor horror with its gore-laced brand of comedy with plenty of charisma.
12Marco Beltrami
A Quiet Place

John Krasinski does well to bring about a marvelously written story without the use of talking. A challenge which is met with brooding instrumental scores that carry the emptiness of the post-apocalyptic world presented. The monster character design is something to be admired and appreciated as well.
13Marco Beltrami
Warm Bodies

I had myself prepared for the repercussions of watching this after having loved the audiobook, but for the most part came out of this quite favorably. The unexpected nature of this breed of love story was one that was quite deserving of it's attention.
14John Carpenter

A classic horror movie series that actual did well to create unease. Unlike his contemporaries Freddy or Jason, Michael Myers was always the only one that actually came close to bringing fear to me. His blank expression mask and ability to appear from thin air made his scares simple yet highly effective.
15Danny Elfman

Another entry from Danny Elfman and Tim Burton that will always be my favorite dark comedy. Elfman's whimsical score and Burton's dark visual showcase both in top form and are highlighted by not only the makeup and stylings but the work of the excellent cast.
16Randy Newman
Monsters Inc.

The monster themed Pixar film with the delightfully jazzy styled music of Randy Newman. Newman's croons were always something that brought me a lot of happiness growing up and this story carries the creativity that Pixar is known for. Another great cast of actors voice these fuzzy, short and all at once comfortable monster characters.
17James Horner

The most nostalgic halloween movie of them all. I used to watch this every year growing up and I still love it today. It's just plain fun guys, how can you go wrong?
18John Williams
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Yeah, I'm a Harry Potter fan, what of it? This is my favorite one of the series as it brings a dark edge to the usually charming universe and yet plenty of joy in it's dark folds.
19Danny Elfman
Edward Scissorhands

About as odd as it comes in terms of a Tim Burton film. The pastel houses contrasting the stark black outfit of Johnny Depp with his scissor hands create such an enticing narrative that unfolds effortlessly.
20Bruno Coulais
Coraline (OST)

Henry Selick is my favorite director of animated films. PERIOD. His stop-motion film expertise is unmatched and Coraline not only shows off his stellar visual work, but also retells the story of the book in a viscerally satisfying way.
21Pete Woodhead
Shaun of the Dead

More humor! Simon Pegg is the perfect example of british humor done right! Who knew a zombie themed movie could carry such perfect slapstick with just enough gore to satisfy the pickiest of horror enthusiasts. There's so many moments that crack me up in this.
22Benjamin Wallfisch

I was highly skeptical of how the new IT movie would be handled as I loved Tim Curry in the original. I was honestly happily surprised with how dark this was represented and the visual landscape here was incredibly bleak. I came out of this quite hopeful for a sequel.
23Joseph LoDuca
Ash Vs. Evil Dead

So this series was a surprise as the Evil Dead trilogy is easily one of the best runs of horror/humor every brought to film. The late return with this series is just more of what made Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell such a perfect mixture, cunning humor and plenty of gore.
