I may be weird but Halloween is my favorite holiday.  Every year I deck out my house with cemetaries, skeletons, spiders, ghosts, goblins, you name it, it's out there.  On Halloween night, I break out one of my speakers from my DJ equipment and play all of the great theme songs from scary movies.
With Halloween less than a week away, I thought  would share some of my favorite scary movie themes.  I know there are tons out there to choose from, and believe me it was hard coming up with this list, but these are my favorites because of the feeling you get when you hear these tracks while you're watching the movies.
What are some of your favorites, and why?  Now remember, we're not judging the actual movies... just their music.  One I can think of in my mind that sounds great but the movie wasn't was the theme from Nigthmare on Elm Street.  Budget movie but great theme.
