Imagine a horror movie – blood dripping, eyes popping out, mouths wide open to elicit deafening screams. You can even hear the intensity of the soundtrack – but what if there wasn’t any music? What would the film be like?
This year at Comic-Con, held at the San Diego Convention Center, BMI’s Anne Cecere and Krakower Poling PR’s Chandler Poling, celebrated the music written for horror films Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Carrie, Re-Animator, Dawn of the Dead and Suspiria by asking the composers of these box office mega-hits to tell their secrets of how their blood curdling music came to be!
