pet sematary soundtrack
Pet Sematary
is now playing everywhere, and with it comes a spooky, atmospheric score from Christopher Young. That name will likely sound familiar to horror fans – he composed the music for Hellraiser, along with SinisterDrag Me to Hell and more.

But Young’s Pet Sematary soundtrack bucks that trend, creating a haunting, unsettling soundscape that immediately gives you the creeps. And yes, the soundtrack features a cover of the Ramones Pet Sematary song, because how could it not? Stream the Pet Sematary soundtrack below.

Us Soundtrack

We’ve got one more week until Jordan Peele blows us all away again with his sophomore directing effort Us. The film has received rave reviews after its world premiere at South by Southwest, and audiences are eager to see what the comedian-turned-horror-mastermind has up his sleeve. But until then, we’ve got a good way to pass the time.

The official soundtrack for Us is available today, and while you might want to hold off on listening to the score until you actually see the movie (that’s a personal rule of mine), there’s one track you can listen to absolutely guilt-free.

And that’s the version that has been released online today. Listen to the song from the Us soundtrack below. Read More »
